What others say about us

The last time I rode a horse was 40 years ago! Finally, I did it again with Rancho Playa a few months ago. Nicole and all her team made me feel comfortable and especially safe. The excellent care and training of the horses are visible to the naked eye and the excursion itineraries are breathtakingly beautiful.

Perfect experience, thank you for an awesome afternoon. I can recommend this activity to others. Nicole gave us the best service and she is very nice person.

Nicole and her team take exceptional care of the horses and go out of their way to make each ride an fantastic experience. I highly recommend that you give this activity a go as it offers unparalleled opportunities to ride beautiful, well behaved horses in a unique setting.

Booked a 2 hour ride with my daughter. Great experience and a chance to see more off the surounding around Las Terenass.
Horses being very well taken care off and a very friendly atmosphere at the ranch. I can highly recommend this little adventure and the ranch.
