Overview

It's a unique experience for which we have specially selected horses for this activity, noble, trustworthy, tamed, and overall very well taken care of; guides with a good presentation, friendly, and most important, expert riders as teachers. And not to mention the more than breathtaking landscape of Monteverde you will appreciate throughout the tour, making this an unforgettable experience.

A lovely ride through the forest. We were total novices but were made to feel at ease with the help of Martin and the horses were gentle and well looked after. Would recommend for someone wanting a great experience with no previous horse riding experience.

My husband and I had a great experience with them. The attention, very well cared horses and the amazing views of the Península de Nicoya are completely worth it.

My girlfriend and I were greeted by a pleasant Martin and his daughter who gave us a 1 min tutorial on how to ride the horses. That was probably more time than needed as the horses are very well-trained and made you feel comfortable. This...More

I would do it again! We were picked up at our hotel by the van and taken to Martin's where some very nice and well-behaved horses were waiting for us. After a brief introduction and instructions, we mounted the horses and were off. The trail...More

I am not much of an equestrian, but this was a great 2 hour ride. Martín is the tour owner and guide. He has a lot of stories to tell (in Spanish) and is a great host. The horses are beautiful, well trained and easy...More
