Discovery Horseback Tour was the greatness horseback experience we had ever taken. So I would highly recommend them! Chris the owner is extremely knowledgeable about horses, Costa Rica and the jungle. I love that they had rescued these horses, taken such good care of them and are loved. The Jungle spa tour was amazing; we are all still talking about!... More

It was getting close to the end of my vacation in Jaco Beach and I so wanted to do the horseback tour with the mud bath at the springs. Alot of tours were hard to get because of the season and the lack of people. But thanks to Chris, Andrea and Leanne I got my tour at Discory Horse Tours!... More

Unlike the other tour companies in Jaco, it is difficult to consider this a business. True, you pay money for a horseback riding tour but Andrea and her husband are so passionate about what they do, it's almost like a trade--trading funds for a glimpse of what they do and getting to enjoy the horses at the same time. They... More

I have been riding with Andrea and Chris at Discovery Tours for years. Not only does this tour take you through the jungle and beaches but it is a true horsemanship experience. The most rewarding way to see Costa Rica is by horseback, and these are the finest most taken care of animals around the area. Most of them rehabilitated... More

They ranged in ages 6-18. I wanted their first experience to be a great one. WOW is all I can say. They made my kids... More

I had the opportuniy to do the horseback tour with my co-workers the other day. I was extremely nervous because I have a very bad phobia of horses. But Andrea and Lia made me feel so comfortable, it was the first time I had ridden a horse in about 20 years. My horse was Merlin and he took such good... More
