Horseback riding in Guanacaste
Ride gentle horses through the lands of Guanacaste.
Guanacaste is the heart of Costa Rica, a land where cowboys still ride over open plains and acres roll by without a building in sight. On this tour, you’ll live that same spirit as you ride gentle horses through the lands of Guanacaste.
Upon arrival, go the stables to meet your bilingual guide and pick your horse. There will be an extensive safety briefing for both first-timers and experienced riders. Then, you’ll enjoy a two-hour ride. Break into the occasional trot or canter, or follow in formation. Your guide will point out nature’s landmarks as well as the flora, fauna and animals that surround you (squirrels, grey foxes, armadillos, birds and monkeys). This journey will be on your speed. Horses are well-behaved and top equipment is provided.
Horseback riding will be in Aromal Farm or Canyon Land Pastures for Zone 1. Guests staying in Zone 2 and Tamarindo area will ride through Huacas Forest, farms and will stop at the beach.
This tour is offered both in the mornings and afternoons (the exact pickup time will be confirmed before your arrival to Costa Rica). This experience is ideal for horse and nature lovers, from children to adults, beginner to experienced riders. Horseback riding can be physically demanding for anyone who has never ridden a horse before. Guests are recommended to feel comfortable on a horse for an extended period of time.
