Panoramic views of spectacular ranch land, coffee fields, cloud forest and in the distance the shimmering Gulf of Nicoya are highlights of the Horse Trek Monteverde 4 hour ride in the clouds. This half day horseback ride tour takes you through scenic landscape and up to the continental divide where the scenery will leave you breathless.
Marvin Anchia and his team of well trained horses will take you along back roads and trails to the continental divide. At four hours the trip lets riders venture further into the scenery around Monteverde and catch glimpses of how the people who call this beautiful area home really work and live. You’ll see a mix of agricultural lands from cattle ranching to cash crops and Marvin will share his knowledge of the area and its traditions with you as you ride. Photo stops tend to be frequent as almost every bend in the road opens up new vistas and wildlife can often be spotted along the route. The ride is along quiet back lanes (just on leaving and returning to the stable there are more cars but the horses are used to it… to avoid this have a look at our 3 Hour Campesino Tour ).
Suitable For: Riders of 10 and up. With 4 hours of riding time, the ride is not for the true novice, but those with some riding experience will find it manageable.
Tour Time: 4 hours either morning or afternoon. Pick up time is at 8.00am or 1.00pm.
If you have a car you can meet us at Hotel Miramontes (outside, not on their property) and we will show you where to go and safely park your car. Miramontes is just 5 minutes from Santa Elena Village (the main commercial area of Monteverde), jut past Restaurant Bon Apetit on the road to Don Juan Coffee Tour
