"This was an experience out of a fairy tale. It was definitely one of my favorite parts of my trip to Costa Rica. After getting off the boat, we met a guide who walked us into the forest (just a minute) where our horses were tethered. I felt like I was stepping into a story book. The horses were gentle, the guide was reassuring, great at helping us feel comfortable on the horses, and clearly loved the horses. The horses were well behaved and he taught us how to use words to make them go quicker and slow down, which was fun. It was just myself and my friend on this tour, so we were able to trot and then gallop a little when we felt comfortable. It was a gorgeous 90 minute ride through a gorgeous country on happy, clearly well-taken care of horses. "
"The tour guide was good, the horses were fine and the scenery was gorgeous! "
"Excellent idea to do it prior to grilling road to Arenal...very relaxing and beautiful, although short trip. Boat over the lake was refreshing. Horses were well taken care of, well trained and fast."
"This transfer was a unique experience. And this because of the horseback tour. Despite of the rain it was definitely one of our best experience in Costa Rica. Our guide was very nice, very careful with details and he was really enjoying what he was doing. The landscapes were beautiful, the horses were very nice. Simply PURA VIDA!"
"Brilliant! We loved this tour, the horses and our guide!! Very impressed, and even though we were beginners managed some galloping! Well kept horses and very well trained."
