Excellent ranch to connect with nature, to be able to rest and get out of the routine with excellent attention and wonderful unique natural spaces that cannot be missed.

AMAZING!!! The roads are fine to get up, don't worry about that Markus TRULY loves his horses and takes AMAZING care of them. These are not "dude ranch" horses. but he has 1 for every level rider. The dogs go with you on the ride AND swim with you. 🙂 BEST experience so far HIGHLY RECOMMEND

My husband and I along with our dog spent two fantastic nights here ! Markus is a wonderful host who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and is also a fantastic cook. Our breakfasts and dinner were all very tasty. The view from our studio was so beautiful especially in the early morning. The large swimming pool was refreshing after long hikes. The sunset hike looking out to the pacific is a must ! Absolutely beautiful. We also enjoyed a nice horseback ride. We will definitely return !

We spent 10 days in Costa Rica, and my girlfriend and I agreed that this was our favorite experience. Markus is extremely knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna, and even as a biology professor, I learned a lot from him! Thanks, Markus!

Wow, I dont know what to say other than DO THIS EXPERIENCE. Markus is very well-traveled and so passionate about Costa Rica and the wildlife therein. His horses are incredible to work with and very well cared for. Although we had virtually no experience on a horse, Markus made sure we were comfortable and safe from beginning to end. The property we traveled by horse was truly beautiful and ended with fresh fruits and a swim with some very cute pups! All in all we couldn't have asked for a more unique Costa Rican experience and would highly recommend to anyone with the means to travel to Markus' amazing homestead.

Our beautiful waterfalls, swimming ponds, fruit trees, and wildlife await you
