An exciting opportunity to experience Tula Vida’s transformational horse experiences in the stunning corner of Lake Arenal, by the Arenal volcano, and then head to the beach to horse-ride along deserted white sand beaches on the gorgeous Guanacaste coast.


Immerse yourself in nature.  Experience authentic connection.  Play in the ocean.  Let your horse guide you on a sensory adventure in his natural world.

Renew your mind, body and spirit!

Many of us have spent the last year surviving rather than thriving.  Nature continues to grow and flourish in its magnificence and is the ideal place for us to calm our spirits and soothe our bodies and minds. 

In this fun-filled retreat, you will join our extraordinary horses in their home - the vibrant green fields, rivers and rainforest near the Arenal volcano in Costa Rica – and experience becoming part of the herd, fully connected to yourself, the horses and the natural world.  You will take this experience to the expansive coast and enjoy sun-soaked rides and views with the horses.  One of a kind!

  • Explore creating relationship and connection with a sensitive being who has 56 million years of wisdom living together in harmony with his herd, his environment and the constantly changing world.

  • Learn tangible take-home tools to balance your nervous system and restore your sense of energy and peace, and fine-tune these with the horses.

  • Feel the wind in your hair as you canter along white sand beaches and splash in the ocean with your horse.

  • Spot monkeys with your warm and funny naturalist guide, Enrique Molina, as you enjoy a delicious beach picnic as your horse relaxes and rolls in the sand nearby.

  • Rest, relax, recharge and find joy on this sensory adventure of horses!

Our mission is to provide a deeper connection with self, through horses, nature and experience.

I can honestly say it's been decades since I've breathed that deep, felt that aware and been that at peace. Thank you!”
