I had a wonderful stay at Establo San Rafael with Brenda and her partner Abel. They are excellent hosts and the food was plentiful, fresh and delicious. As a guest at the farm you can completely make yourself at home, swinging in a hammock on the porch, looking out over the ring where the horses love to play and at the surrounding mountains bathed in sunshine is utter bliss. The horses (and all of the other animals) are extremely well looked after and very well loved. For me this trip was a perfect opportunity to relax in a horsey atmosphere, learn about natural horsemanship (in which I was a total beginner so don't be afraid to give it a go even if you never have before!) and to get to experience the real 'Tico' lifestyle. Tourism has not really hit Puriscal, the nearest town, and riding around the surrounding villages is a fabulous experience of authentic Costa Rican countryside. I could not recommend Establo San Rafael highly enough for a horsey retreat for any animal lover!
