The New Frontier
After living for so long in Santa Teresa and after visiting the whole country as a private guide for high-end type clientele, we decided to carefully craft the new frontier of experiences open to all public.
In Guanacaste we wanted to focus on a very selective group of experiences, accesible to everyone but away from the big concentration of tourism. We have applied from all the years of experience and create options that will easily showcase the essence of the country and its people.
Guanacaste is a vast territory and presents a different challenge than Monteverde or Santa Teresa where everything is in a small area. With this in mind we have amazing options carefully spread through the area, so people wont have to travel a lot for a single option no matter where their accommodation is nested.
We love Guanacaste so much that we have permanently moved to live at it’s north by the ocean side. From here we build all of our logistics and it is also the home to new ideas in the cooking…
From the continental divide at the cloud forest to the lowlands and the ocean, here you can choose spectacular experiences created by a local company that is growing organically in the industry.
Founded in 1973, the Rincón de la Vieja National park extends 34000 acres of land, is home to the Rincón de la Vieja National Volcano, and protects both the montane Tropical Forest and the Dwarf Cloud Forest. The park is also part of one of Costa Rica’s three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Guanacaste Conservation Area
Horizontes Forestry Research Station was established in 1989, with an area of more than 7,000 ha (17,000 acres), in an effort to study and propagate key native tree species, to counteract the pressure from the lumber industry and feed reforestation projects in Costa Rica. Once a barren cattle ranch, Horizontes has now more than 75% forest coverage, and is home to a healthy Tropical Dry Forest with a thriving population of native trees.
Visit one of the top equestrian centers and boarding facilities in Costa Rica. Home to beautiful horses, these well trained friends are light, responsive, collected, intelligent and easy to work with.
This is a great way to view the Guanacaste coast and countryside. We offer 2 trail riding options, which will take you to different secluded beaches and spots truly off the beaten path. These places will take your breath away. It’s not unusual to find no other footprints other than that of our own horses on some of these beaches.

We’ll be driving southeast through the Nicoya Peninsula to Rancho Humo located on the southwest corner of Río Tempisque. The drive duration will depend on your place of accommodation. Please ask your contact for specific details.
Tempisque is Costa Rica’s third longest river. It flows south through 144 km, from the Orosi Volcano by the Nicaraguan border to the Gulf of Nicoya, all through the Nicoya Peninsula, providing essential water to one of the driest areas of Central America. If it weren’t for the Tempisque River and its nutrient rich waters, life would be very different in Guanacaste.
