This horse experience is truly something NOT to be missed. We had a wonderful time from the moment we were greeted by Andrea and Leanna. They absolutely exhibit their passion and love for these horses and their job. The horses are extremely well trained and gentle. The views were gorgeous and the spa dip was a once in a lifetime...

There are different tours to chose from and since we had younger children we chose the spa package. The guide was excellent, knew so much about the area, walked with my youngest while he rode (but made him feel like he was doing it all on his own), and made the day fun! The owners and staff rescue horses and... More

This place is a shining example as to how you should run horse tours. The horses, most of which are rescue, have been trained using natural horsemanship techniques; they have been given a new life with Discovery and a great one! The ride was a lovely trip through the forests, seeing the birds and fauna and monkeys along the way.... More

We rocked up to Discovery Horse Tours on a Sunday which happened to be the Horses days off. Although it was their day-off too, Chris and Andrea seemed to be hanging around their place of work with their horses as if by choice, it wasnt until later that we realised it was actually a Sunday and these people were enjoying...

A week ago me and my 7year old son went to Costa Rica for a two week vacation and we wanted to do a horseback riding tour. The Jungle Spa experience was amazing! You see different areas such as land acres, jungle from small pathes to open vistas. The nature around you is just PURA VIDA! My son never really... More

Having been on quite a few horseback tours in the States and others here, wow!! First of all, they have no more than 8 on the tour and if you swing through at the right time on a weekday you can get a private one like my wife and I did :) Second of all, this is a huge farm... More

My husband and I just did this tour on the last weekend of our honeymoon and it was the best decision of our trip so far. The kind of skin treatment and refreshing from the 100% all natural Volcanic Ash is what you would pay well over $100 just to recieve a facial at a spa. But you can exfoliate... More

These folks have a huge heart for animals! The horses are rescues and have received world class training - they are gentle creatures and very well cared for. Liana, the guide on the trip couldn't be more accommodating to the guests, and quickly made me comfortable on the horse. She was knowledgeable of the wildlife and made the whole experience... More
