Horseback riding in Costa Rica

There are many places offering riding. I have taken one down in Tambor and it was nice along the beach and mountains. It's hard to say which is best. If you do go to Monteverde, it is a cloud forest and it will rain, even in dry season.

A friend of mine took a horseback ride while in La Fortuna and said it was very fun. The horses were well taken care of. The tour guide spoke English and was very entertaining. The horse ride took him up to the La Fortuna Waterfalls. You can even go in for a dip! The journey lasted round trip about 4 hours. Just the right amount of time to be on the back of a horse.

If you are looking for a day trip, horseback riding is also available in Dominical. You spend your day on trails, stopping at a local house for breakfast before making your way to Nuyaca waterfalls. 150 foot waterfall, with a huge pool for swimming at the bottom. After spending an hour or so, you make your way back for a local lunch, and continue on until you reach the end.
