Highly Recommend Especially for Small Children
Apr 2021 • Family
I highly recommend the Black Stallion Eco Park, we went zip lining with our six year old and the staff and owner were awesome !! I was so nervous but the staff took care of Olivia my six year old and I always felt she was in safe hands!! The staff always focused on safety through out the trip. It was the best experience ever !! I have to many zip lining places and this was the best !!

All around wonderful day!
Mar 2021
We did it all! Ziplining, horseback riding, dinner under the stars and twinkling lights and talking! It was a great day! Alex is an amazing host and very attentive to his guests! I enjoyed talking with him and learning about how Black Stallion began! Zip lining course was enjoyable and perhaps a bit 'easier' than some we've done - would be good for kids as well as adults. Horseback ride is longer than many others...you get a good amount of time on the horses! Dinner was AMAZING - freshly prepared - nothing 'nuked' here. Just a truly lovely day in Costa Rica!

Great zip lining, horseback riding, and BBQ
Mar 2021 • Friends
5 star review! Great food, great fun, had a blast! Alex is an awesome host! We love visiting Black Stallion and introducing our visitors to this fabulous place. Horacio and Marcos do a great job on the 9 zip lines on the property and the “special” zip line was amazing . (Don’t want to spoil the surprise.) An adventurous horseback ride with Giovanni. The grand finale was an amazing BBQ dinner with salad, chicken, ribs, filet, shrimp, homemade bread, and homemade dessert. Thank you Nancy for the fabulous cooking! This is a repeat over and over. Alex started a school, is building a treehouse, and always is doing something new each time we return.

Great Experience
Feb 2021
Alex is a great host. He picked us up in Tamarindo for one of his many experiences, we chose the ATV ride and BBQ dinner, but he has many more options including Horse Back Riding, Zip Lines, Hiking and just relaxing at his private pool! He has a 1200 acre Ranch with every type of terrain you can think of he took us to the highest peak of his property for a breathtaking view of the entire area. We then returned to have a wonderful dinner including Salad, BBQ Chicken, Ribs, Sausage and Steak. What a wonderful experience! Gary G.

PRIVATE RANCH - Horseback Ride
Feb 2021
Without a doubt one of the best experiences we had on the private ranch. We had an amazing morning horseback ride with a fantastic guide. Alex was the perfect host. Loved the nature and peaceful surroundings and had a great morning with the family group. We had three first timers and the experience is one we will not forget. We'll return Amigos - Pura Vida.

Sublime.

I cannot say enough good things about my experiences at Black Stallion. The owner (Alex) is one of the most unique and down to earth people I have ever met in my life. He was a gracious host with a wonderful property that was honestly breathtaking. The ATV tour was an experience I will never forget and zip lining was an absolute thrill with great guides that made you feel safe. I would highly recommend booking an experience with Black Stallion!

Beyond words
Jan 2021 • Family
We had initially planned our adventure for March 2020 but Covid had other plans. We worked with Alex to get our booking changed to when we could visit Costa Rica. We were 2 families scheduled for the zip line and bbq. We arrived and Alex was excited to greet us as we piled out of the shuttle. We were then fitted with our equipment and whisked up the hill to start our adventure. The zip line workers were great. The made us feel safe as they explained how to use all of the equipment. We had the most breathtaking views from the top of the mountain. After completing all 10 lines, we were treated to an ATV tour of the property by Alex. We were blown away at the views, the terrain, and the howler monkeys. We were able to let the kids “howl” at them so they would call back. There was no set timeline for completing the activities and that made for a very relaxing day. We were then spoiled by all of the fantastic food that Nancy prepared. It was a culinary delight. We can’t thank Alex and his staff enough for the experience that we had. I would highly recommend this adventure and look forward to doing it again on our next trip to CR.

Amazing Experience at Black Stallion Ranch!!
Dec 2020
My girlfriend and I had an absolutely amazing time at Black Stallion from start to finish. We booked their canopy zip-lining tour and ATV tour and could not have been happier with our decision. Alex picked us up from our Air BnB in Tamarindo and told us all about the area, giving us newfound knowledge that only a local would know. The ranch is a little outside the town of Tamarindo and is very private out in the forest, giving us our first experience in the Costa Rican forest. Upon arrival, we chit-chatted with Horacio and Alex about the ranch and even got to play a little ping-pong. If you want my advice, don't bet Horacio $20 that you'll beat him, because you will be down $20 in a matter of minutes :) Marco and Horacio then suited us up for the zip-line, where they took us up to the highest point on the ranch and briefed us on how to ride the zip-line. They made use feel super comfortable and the zip-line is very safe. It was my girlfriend's first time ever zip-lining, and was a little nervous, but after the first ride she was excited for more. There were a total of 10 zip-lines I think, each one a little different and exciting. There is one with a fun surprise, but you'll have to visit to find out what it is :) Horacio and Marco were AWESOME, always joking with us and having great conversations and pointing out any local wildlife that we came across. Upon finishing the zip-lining, we hopped on a couple of ATVs and drove around the forest for a couple hours, getting the full feel for the ranch on the ground. The ATVs rode like a dream, and are very easy to handle for beginners. I had ridden ATVs a couple of times, and these by far were the most fun. Horacio took us all around the property, stopping from time to time to tell us about interesting aspects and showing us amazing views. Alex was in the middle of building a tree house on the property while we were visiting, and we can't wait to see the finished product. My girlfriend and I are already planning on coming back and are wanting to rent out the treehouse for our stay, It is perfect for couples. Overall, you will not find a better activity in Tamarindo then the ones offered at Black Stallion. Alex also cooks BBQ for larger groups, something we want to do if we go back with friends in the future. This visit was extremely affordable compared to the other expensive canopy tours you might find elsewhere in Costa Rica, and felt very personable. After leaving Black Stallion, we felt as if Alex, Horacio, and Marco were true friends and we cannot wait to return. Visiting Black Stallion was BY FAR the highlight of our trip. They also made us feel comfortable with Covid, wearing masks on the tours and keeping socially distant. I highly recommend getting out to Black Stallion Ranch in Tamarindo as soon as possible, they are top notch and absolutely wonderful, THANK YOU ALEX!!
