A highlight of Costa Rican adventures, mount up and meander along lush horse trails to visit hidden waterfalls on a truly unique nature tour.
Your tour begins with a pick-up in Jaco or Los Suenos. A drive of about 15 minutes transports you to a lush oasis spread across 80 private acres of untouched natural beauty. Home to some of the region’s best-kept horses, you meet your steed at the ranch. After some safety instruction with an experienced guide, you set off for a relaxed ride.
Perfect for new and novice riders, the unhurried outing winds along rainforest trails dense with tropical flora. Your guide points out some native plants, encouraging you to breathe in the sweet scents of lemon and mango leaves. The guide also educates on the transitional forest’s important place in the local ecosystem.
But not only humans and horses reside in the rich rainforest. As you trot along, you’re apt to pass white-faced monkeys romping through the treetops as rainbow-feathered scarlet macaws and yellow-billed toucans soar through the air. Keep an eye out for colorful dart frogs and iguanas perched in the trees.
You dismount to the soft sound of cascading water in the distance. A short walk reveals a secluded triple waterfall that empties into a natural swimming pool. Should you leap from the rock platform or plunge down a natural slide? Why not both? After a refreshing swim under the falling water, you mount up and ride back to the ranch where you’re greeted with a bounty of fresh tropical fruit.
An exclusive horse adventure, trail riding through a pristine rainforest creates indelible memories of your visit to Costa Rica.
