Review Description

Finca Soley is a horse project and volunteers are completly involved in everything. Our volunteers recieve natural horsemanship lessons and a spanisch course in order to activly help in the training of the horses and the teaching (weather in the school or riding lessons for kids).


Finca Soley is a very small project that really tries to change something here in the area but also for the horses that get in touch with people that have been with us. We will touch your idea about horses and horse training. Spread the word to create a better world for our beloved horses and the people around them.

Finca Soley is a beautiful Guestfarm in the mountain area of Cartago, Costa Rica's best kept secret. Enjoy seeing and hearing horses neighing outside my balcony doors, watching the volcano smoke early in the morning, cooking over a beautiful fire pit.

Everyone at the farm was so welcoming and open - you just can‘t feel not included. The work and training is nicely balanced and you have alot ...
I am thankful to have been able to stay as a volunteer at Finca Soley for 2 weeks this summer. The picturesque views from the pasture alone are enough to make this trip worth it, but the farm is home to 10 amazing horses that I was able to work with every day, and were truly the highlight of my ...
Isa and her family, the animals on the farm and the venue are amazing. You will find yourself literally in paradise and the daily view from the pasture is just stunning. Isa is requesting a lot from her volunteers, especially 100% commitment, punctuality, full focus on given tasks, personal ...
