PRIVATE 2-Day Horseback Ride
A 2-Day Horseback Ride in Monteverde gives you a taste of horseback riding in Costa Rica at its best! Enjoy the delights and wonderful views of Monteverde on horseback. A unique two-day tour that includes two private full days of riding,.The tour includes two lunches and return transport from your hotel to the horses. This tour is suitable most times of the year and for people with at least some riding experience (as you'll be in the saddle for long lengths of time). Your guide will choose the most suitable horse for each rider, depending on size and riding experience. We have healthy, well-cared-for horses with clean comfortable saddles.
The rides are in the countryside of Monteverde Costa Rica, skirting the famous cloud forests (but you don't go in them - no domestic animals allowed). The 2-day trip starts with a pick-up from your hotel. Note the rides are not fast due to the terrain.
The day starts with a pick-up at your hotel to help get the horses ready for the day and to learn how to saddle up Costa Rican style! We will mount up and start our adventure through the varied scenery in the area; passing by mountains, pasture land, and farms. The route is unique as will go to two private farms. The first one is a wild farm of about 120 acres with fantastic views and a tiny waterfall surrounded by forest to hike around. Then we make our way to the second farm right off the beaten track, on the way, there are incredible views of the area with the cloud forests in the distance. At the farm, we will enjoy a homemade picnic and you can bathe in the little river or simply rest. Sometimes monkeys and tropical birds hang around the river, so make sure you have your camera! The tour is all day and you'll be back in your hotel about 4.00 pm. About 5-6 hours of riding.
