Costa Rica Horseback Riding


Horseback tours allow travelers to experience several spectacular places within the course of a few hours or a few days. Imagine riding through a misty rainforest before gearing up for a river rafting adventure, or perhaps crossing creeks and streams before soaking away the afternoon in geothermal hot springs. Horseback rides can take you to one place or ten, all the while making the journey one of the most memorable parts of the adventure. Inexperienced riders are welcomed, and tours can be arranged for both private individuals and larger groups. Although horseback riding is possible throughout most of the country, some of the better-known locations include Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, Arenal and Rincón de La Vieja.
