MARGOT was very helpful at the center . I was very impressed that even when I was late arriving because I made a mistake on which ranch i was going to . One ranch contacted the other and arranged for transportation . My guide PEDRO was a very good horseman and spoke very good english . He explained the history of the ranch and the area as we rode . The trails were very nice and relaxing . The only bad thing about the ride was it ended . But then I can always ride all day ...

We loved our trip to Las Marietas. Maggie is an incredible guide and a passionate protector of the Marietas ecosystem - we learned so much from her. This is not a glam tour (no bathroom on boat we took) but snorkeling and spending time with a knowledgeable guide that truly lives this unique and fascinating island chain make it great experience.

Very well organised, pick up was on time and reliable. The ranch was excellent, horses where immaculate, well trained and calm. We had tequila tasting which was fabulous and entertaining. Food was very good. We saw other wild life at the ranch which was a good experience.

The guides we very nice. The horses were very well trained and looked like they were taken good care of. They also let us run on the beach as fast as could! The tequila guy was very entertaining. Good fun!!

Excellent service ! The guides are super prepared and very professional
