Great job done by Nicole and her team. Recommended for anyone who wants to experience the area, horse riding, nature and with that, get a lesson-on-the-go how to ride horses. With kids and without. Thanks again

We are normally very reluctant to go horseback riding in the third world. Usually the horses appear tired, unkempt & exploited. That is certainly NOT the case at Rancho Playa!! Nicole, the Swiss owner, absolutely LOVES her horses and takes great care of them! They...More
