The Painted Pony Guest Ranch is a 50-acre, family-owned property just minutes from the Pacific coast. It's a laidback destination where you can spend your days riding the old Spanish Trail through area ranches to villages where you might stop at a local cantina to immerse yourself in Guanacaste culture. In season, you can also join a group of local riders for a traditional fiesta including a colorful horse parade. Each of the many local trails offers its own unique experience, such as winding through the quaint ranch town of Tempate to Potrero Beach. Off-saddle activities include snorkeling, sailing, diving and zip lining. Accommodations are limited to a private suite and a one-bedroom ranch house, ensuring exclusivity.
