This journey takes you into the stunning and exclusive landscape in the countryside and forests of Tocori where we fill find and enjoy the nature’s beautiful designs, including a waterfall. What better way to see and experience the beautiful scenery away from the roads and bustles of the towns than on a horseback.
This is perfect for all nature lovers, whether you are travelling with your family, friends or solo. Perfect antidote to modern life.
Your journey starts when our experienced naturalist guide picks you up at your accommodation. Enjoy learning about Costa Rica’s exotic plants, rare wildlife, history and culture as you ride through the tropical jungle and private ecological reserve at Tocori, just a short ride away from Manuel Antonio.
You will be taken to a small authentic Costa Rican ranch, where people live in harmony with the nature and take care of the animals, including the horses you will be riding.
These are well-trained Costa Rican horse, which are steady on their feet, responsive and perfectly adjusted for tropical climate. Your experienced equestrian guide will give you all the instructions and equipment needed for the horse-riding part of the tour and take care of you from the beginning to the end. No matter if you are first timer or experienced rider, this experience won’t leave you cold.
We ride in an easy pace through the countryside surrounded by the primary forest which is unmodified by humans. It’s a perfect place to spot wildlife that has been living in peace in these woods for centuries. Take in the lush scenery with streams and diverse flora and fauna and the sounds of the wildlife around you while your horse guides you towards one of the highlights of our tour: A picturesque waterfall.
There you can relax and even dip into the pristine water and let it wash away all the worries, at least for the moment. Enjoy the snacks and drinking water provided in this secluded and undisturbed area, sheltered by trees. When you are ready for lunch we ride back to the ranch where you will enjoy a typical home cooked Costa Rican meal surrounded by the beautiful nature.
You will head back to your accommodation satisfied and with more knowledge and appreciation for Costa Rica’s amazing beauty.
