Cultural immersion and exclusive accommodation will make you feel at home at this amiable ranch.
A 50-acre, family-owned retreat, The Painted Pony Guest Ranch enjoys a tranquil location near Costa Rica's Pacific Gold Coast. This is a laidback destination where you can spend your days riding the Old Tempate Trail. As you meander through neighboring ranches and villages, you might stop at a cantina for a cool drink and conversation with the locals. In season, you can even participate in a traditional fiesta including a lively horse parade. Each of the trail rides features its own unique experience, from the Monteverde Cloud Forest to the Arenal Volcano. Snorkeling, sailing, diving and zip-lining are also popular ways to spend your time. Accommodations are limited to a private suite and a one-bedroom ranch house, ensuring exclusivity.
