Horseback Ride in Monteverde Costa Rica is a great option! This 2.5 ride will take you through scenic countryside and is a perfect getaway from an hectic tour schedule. The ride offers a glimpses of rural Costa Rican life and villages and the pace is leisurely enough that it’s a fun ride for everyone.
The ride is perfect for beginners or more experienced riders looking for a shorter horseback ride in Monteverde Costa Rica, 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 various tropical birds. There’s even a scenic viewpoint where you can admire the views 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!
