Western Trails Rodeo is owned and operated by Jerome Robinson, a former professional rodeo competitor whose love for the sport spilled beyond the competitive arena and into the field of rodeo production.

Robinson was raised in Brandon, Neb., a dot-on-the-map farm town in the state’s western edge. The son of a wheat and corn farmer, Robinson came from rural roots, and it showed in his love for horses, cattle and his favorite sport – rodeo. When he was 3 years old, his grandmother took him to Denver’s National Western Stock Show and Rodeo where he first witnessed bull riding.

Upon returning from the Denver rodeo he boldly proclaimed to his parents that he was going to be a bull rider. They laughed at the time, but 50 years later, Robinson’s family and friends know he means business when it comes to anything that involves rodeo.

Upon high school graduation, Robinson went on to compete for Colorado State University’s rodeo team and, in the mid 1960s, joined what is now the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

As one of the top bull riders of the 1970s and early ’80s, Robinson qualified 11 times for the PRCA’s prestigious National Finals Rodeo. He finished as high as fourth in the world standings and traveled to more than 125 rodeos per year fulfilling his childhood dream of being a professional bull rider.

Robinson retired from rodeo competition in 1982 but his involvement in rodeo and his travel schedule never lessened. Robinson immediately shifted his focus to the production side of professional rodeo. The result was the formation of his company, Western Trails Rodeo (WTR), which today stands out as one of the nation’s most versatile and experienced rodeo and western-event producers.

During the 1999 Professional Bull Riders’ World Championships in Las Vegas, Robinson received professional bull riding's most prestigious honor when he was inducted into the PBR's Ring of Honor, considered the “Hall of Fame” for professional bull riders.

Tom Barron purchased this house in 2011

For years my staff would joke that I did not know how to relax. They insisted that I did not even know how to say 'va va va-cation'. My fiance convinced me to take a trip to Costa Rica, and her love of the country wore off on me. My cowboy knees saw the sun for the first time in decades, and my farmer tan began to fade. When we found 'Casa del Toro', it was like love at first sight and we just had to have this house! Now, as I continue to save for my eventual retirement, I will have my own unique Paradise to enjoy the best there is in life!! We hope you enjoy our home too!

Located in one of the most exclusive areas of Manuel Antonio & Quepos, Casa del Toro offers outstanding views of Quepos, Manuel Antonio, Damas Island, Majestic Mountains, Local Farmlands and the visiting Wildlife. Found at the end of a cul-de-sac, Casa del Toro offers groups the privacy you seek while vacationing and enjoying your own private pool and indoor/outdoor living areas that this casually elegant home has to offer. Featuring all the amenities of a 5 star hotel, the armed response security system and safe box assure guests of their safety while traveling in a foreign country. Make the most of your Costa Rica Vacation and let the Concierge and Staff of Casa del Toro do all the work for you while you enjoy fun and adventure in Paradise!

SIMPLY AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Casa Del Toro for a week. We had 2 families which consisted of 4 adults and 3 children. The house EXCEEDED our expectations. The Cliffside location of the house offers breathtaking views all around. Overlooking the town of Quepos in the evening as the sun is setting is simply beautiful. The house was large, comfortable, and impeccably cared for. Our house manager, Tom, was beyond amazing. Tom attended to our every need with a smile! He scheduled all of our tours with the best personal guides. Tom also arranged for in house personal chef services with Chef Roger.. what a treat!! .. it was better than a 5 star restaurant for a fraction of the cost! Our housekeeper, Bruni, was wonderful.. she cleaned the house top to bottom each day and she even did our laundry and placed it neatly folded on our beds. Our trip to Costa Rica was so special because of our stay at Casa Del Toro, I’d recommend this property in a heartbeat and we can’t wait to go back!

WONDERFUL HOME, PERFECT LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this home for a week, four adults and two teenagers (16, 18). The pictures don't do it justice!! We were pleased with every aspect of this home. The bedrooms were nicely appointed with all the necessities. The bathrooms were great and having a full attached bathroom with each bedroom was a great bonus.

The kitchen had everything we needed and we ate a lot of our meals here. The gas grill came in handy for our fresh fish we purchased at the local market. It was nice to have a full size fridge and water/ice maker for use. We either ate at the smaller table inside or the larger table on the patio.

Coming home to our own pool every afternoon was amazing!! The patio area offers wonderful views of Quepos and Damas island. We were able to see partial sunsets over a small hillside. The patio is very spacious and we found ourselves outside all times of the day watching the birds and lizards. We did catch a glimpse of a monkey in a nearby tree on our last morning!! (Keep in mind the railings have large openings, may not be suitable for young
children)

Tom, the house manager, is so helpful. We didn't have to worry about a thing. If we wanted to do an activity, he would set it up with the best company in town. We never had a complaint. He is available for any needs and went above and beyond for us several times. We had a flight delay and then got stuck in traffic due to a fatality accident near San Jose. He rearranged our transportation from the airport and waited for us at the house into the early morning hours. He even picked up some groceries for us so we would have essentials when we got there!! The next morning he met us at the house and personally took us to the grocery store for the other items we needed. He was a lifesaver on many occasions!

The housekeeping service made my vacation even better! Bruni came everyday (except Sunday) and cleaned every inch of the house. Dishes and laundry was done every day. She is so sweet and what a wonderful service she provides. If we were at the house while she was there, you didn't even know she was there.

The location of this house is great. Wonderful views and easy to get to both Manuel Antonio and Quepos. No need to have a rental car and honestly I wouldn't want to drive these roads. Taxis were easy to come by and a short walk down the hill (which is steep, so if you have trouble walking, use a taxi that picks you up at the door) to the local bus.

BEST CHOICE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at Casa Del Toro for 10 wonderful days from December 28th - January 7th. Just looking at the pictures again on this website makes me long to go back! The layout of this house is casual, homey, and spacious without being to big. Our family had our own private "suites" with wonderful modern bathrooms; and we would gather on the deck in the evenings to splash in the pool, play cards and watch the beautiful sunsets and views of Quepos. The house is like old world meets modern -the house itself is very modern, but then you look down on traditional Quepos with its non-stop hustle and bustle. Turn right out of the driveway and you are there in Quepos with the locals. Turn left and you are in Manual Antonios tourist area with tons of restaurants, entertainment and beautiful beaches. The house was sparkling clean with daily maid service (we asked for a few days off and that was fine). Tom was a joy with his never ending knowledge of the area. I had inquired about local tamales and what do you think was waiting in the fridge for us upon arrival! He arranged (and rearranged) our tours and even helped us with our grocery shopping! Overall a fabulous holiday. Just like posted before - RENT THIS PLACE!!

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 (kids aged 20, 17, 15) chose Casa Del Toro for our first vacation outside of USA. We were very pleased. We chose Casa Del Toro after reading the great reviews of the house and the house manager, Tom Barron. We were not disappointed. The house was great; roomy, clean and great views. Tom was the best. He made sure we knew how to get around, booked our excursions and was available to answer all of our questions. He made the vacation great! There were enough activities to keep everyone entertained and well as time to relax and enjoy Costa Rica and reconnect with our kids. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Thanks Tom, hope to see you again soon.

RENT THIS ONE!

  • 5 of 5
I am confirming all the wonderful reviews. We traveled with 4 adults and 3 children and it was absolutely perfect. We rented a car, which was great and you could drive up the hill! Tom was very well informed and very quick to respond and answer all questions. Perfect place for your Costa Rican adventure.
