As of March 16, 2020, the Costa Rican government has closed all points of entry to foreigners to Costa Rica. We are keeping our staffing levels at a minimum to assist clients in this mass evacuation and process credit notes to clients who have future reservations. Should you have an emergency, please contact (506)8904-6809.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected Costa Rica, but we have an advanced and modern health care system and universal health care for our citizens with a well-organized and centralized government, so as a country, we have been taking considerable precautions for travelers and citizens.
We wish all travelers and fellow world citizens much health — Be SAFE and have serious FUN (at home!).

All Day Cowboy Ride! If you are a horse lover than you are going to love this tour. Great value and a wonderful experience and one of the best Costa Rica Horse Tours for experiencing a day in the countryside, some of which is on trails not accessable to cars. If you would like to book directly with the owners of the horses please go to www.horsetrekmonteverde.com
You'll start off by helping to prepare the horses (if you wish to) and learn how we saddle up in Costa Rica and see the type of equipment we use. After getting the horses ready you''ll set off for an all-day excursion with the owner of Horse Trek Monteverde, Marvin Anchia. Marvin is a great character and a fantastic rider. There is little he does not know about horses (in Costa Rica that is!). He claims to have started riding before he was born as his mother used to ride pregnant and simply carried on from there. By 8 years old he was training many of the horses in the area and the love of horses is evident.
The route used to get to the small farm owned by Marvin and his wife, Janet Ellis, is only accessible by horseback for many months of the year. Costa Rica Horse Tours by Horse Trek Monteverde are highly recommended in Tripadvisor.
The journey to the farm passes some amazing scenery and you´ll definitely need your camera! A picnic is provided by the river side where birds and monkeys are normally hanging around cooling off in the trees. There is plenty of opportunity to swim in the river and just relax, before setting off again in a different direction to pass through other farms in the area. As the zone is hilly the views points are simply stunning.
Along the route back there will be another stop at a local coffee bar for a quick drink and a chance to admire the hummingbirds at the back of the cafe as the owner puts out feeders which attracts many, many birds.
When you return to the stable you will get an opportunity to bath and feed the horses and give them a fond pat on the neck adios!
