We took the beach/jungle tour on December 22 and had a great time. Family of 5 (kids - 9, 11, 12) had little or no riding experience (nor did the parents) but Playa Ponies did a great job. Would highly recommend it to anyone that is in the area. Easy to work with and price seemed appropriate.

Thank Dan S

It was our first trip to Nosara, and we heard good reviews about Playa Ponies. We called the day before and were able to schedule the 1 1/2hr ride at the time we wanted. They had asked about our riding ability and they chose the right horses for our our level of riding (one experienced and one beginner). The horses were well taken care of and well mannered. We rode on trails to a beautiful beach. We were the only people on the beach and were able to trot and canter the horses. Nano took us through some local areas and ended on a nice trail through the preserve. He was lots of fun, a great guide, and we learned alot about the area. He took pictures of us along the way...and even took a video of us (I didn't even know my camera did that :)
Thank you Nano for a wonderful ride....we will be back! Happy trails!

What a great time! We called Playa Ponies in the morning and they scheduled us for a sunset ride that afternoon. When we arrived the horses were ready to go. Our girls ages 10 and 11were very excited. Nano was a great guide taking us on trails through the local area and ending up going down the beach for the beautiful sunset and getting us back just before dark. It was a great end to our vacation. We will ride again next year!!
