This two and a half hour ride through the scenic countryside near Monteverde Costa Rica is a perfect getaway from a hectic tour schedule and offers seldom seen glimpses of rural Tico life. Guests are frequently able to spot wildlife and the pace is leisurely enough that it’s an excellent ride for children.
Horseback Ride Costa Rica! A relaxed horseback ride, this trip is perfect for beginners or more experienced riders looking for a shorter trip they can do in the morning or afternoon. Your guide will take you past banana, sugar and coffee plantations while sharing information about the local area and its customs. The ride skirts along some cloud forest and it’s not uncommon to see Toucans or even sloths. There’s even a scenic viewpoint where you can sometimes catch glimpses of the Gulf of Nicoya. 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 which is a but more expensive as we start the tour further away but it’s a stunning route). This is a great opportunity to do a horseback ride in Costa Rica!
