Full description
During the 40-minute drive to the town, your guide will share interesting information about the history of Quepos and the area in general. Once you reach Londres, you will set foot on a picturesque property, where you can find restrooms, stables, a corral and an open-air waiting area. You will receive riding instruction, safety tips, and also get some practice time before heading out to explore the Costa Rican rainforest. This tour allows you to learn the exotic secrets that lie within primary rainforests, riding at a maximum altitude of 600 meters (1900 ft). The ride lasts about 2.5-hours (round-trip) and will be highlighted by amazing valley views, verdant vegetation and numerous wildlife species such as birds and reptiles. At the end of the trail there is the beautiful Shaman waterfall where you will be able to rest for about 30 minutes. Lie on the grass or take a swim, or even both! After the break, you will return riding the same trail. At the end of your horseback riding tour you will be taken back to the riding center, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch made with local ingredients and enjoy a little conversation before heading back to your hotel.

    We were fortunate to be the only ones on the tour, and our driver Enrique stopped along the way to show us all sorts of plants, from cinnamon to menthol. Our trail guide Cesar was also great, and we had a really nice ride. It was one of the best excursions we’ve been on!

    This was a relaxing and enjoyable excursion. Riding peacefully through the lush landscape was nice, then we got to stop at a waterfall and play in the water for a bit before we rode back. Horses are well trained so good for first time riders. Guide was very nice but I can’t remember the name. He was the one for 4/26 at 8 am.

    Belle balade aux abords d'une belle rivière dans une forêt luxuriante. Baignade dans la chute du Chaman. Les chevaux que l'on chevauche sont très dociles et très doux. Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre expérience. Notre hôte a pris des photos de nous à cheval dignes des plus belles cartes postales .. Très agréable comme expérience :-) Je recommande !
