A full day of horseback riding through Monteverde, Costa Rica along a forest banked river and a stop at a local watering hole for a well-deserved drink!
Your horse trek adventure begins in the morning when you’ll be invited to help tack-up your horse in preparation for the day. Once mounted up your guide will ride with you along picturesque farm tracks and trails through Monteverde’s agricultural heartland where commerce and tradition mingle. As you ride keep your eyes peeled for sloths and toucans and enjoy learning about the rich cultural heritage of the area and learning about the crops grown in the area.
After a span of time you’ll reach a babbling river that winds through forest. There you’ll swap roads for trails and wind your way along the river on the lookout for monkeys that might chatter at you from the trees.
Two and a half hours of riding will bring you to a secluded clearing on the banks of the river where you can rest your horse under the trees, enjoy a picnic and, if you like, a refreshing soak in the cool, river pools. The forest pulses with life and you’ll marvel at the amazing biodiversity of the area and the unique tropical plant life of this region famous for its cloud forests.
