Andrea, Chris and the horses are the heart of this business and that is clear from the second you arrive. The horses are so calm and smart - riding them was a breeze. My friends and I did the jungle spa tour which involved visiting a spring and doing a natural mud spa treatment. Andrea made sure all candid moments... More

My fiance and I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica where we had the pleasure of going on two beautiful horse rides with Discovery Horse Tours. We enjoyed the first ride so much we decided to do a second ride! Our first ride was the La Hacienda tour where we rode through the rainforest and over to... More

Horseback riding through the rainforest with Andrea was the best! She is truly a horse whisperer with the kindest heart toward her rescued animals. She points out rainforest animals and plants along the way and the jungle spa experience is unique! This is a "must do" tour during your trip to Costa Rica.

We are a family of four including two teenagers and we had a fantastic time. Andrea and her husband are true animal whisperers. Their horses are extremely well trained and meet you an what ever level you are at. We have done many horse back riding trips while on vacation and after our last one in Montana we swore we... More

My partner and I loved every minute of our Jungle spa tour with Andrea. This is an experience that should be on everyone's bucket list when coming to Costa Rica. Andrea was very informative and knowledgable about the area, plants and wildlife which we loved along the way. All the horses are loved and looked after as they deserve to... More

We had the pleasure to take a horseback ride with the people at Discovery. The ride was so fun and informative with Leeanna guiding us and the horses are beautiful and well cared for. The mud "Spa" stop is so fun! Such a lovely experience. You run a great place Chris and Andrea-you should be proud.

I just came back from a 5 day horse riding vacation with Discovery Horse Tours and it was an unforgettable experience. Andrea and Chris make sure everything is taken care of. It's very clear that they, and Leanna, take very good care of and love their horses (and the horses themselves are amazing). The trail rides into the jungle (and... More

We highly recommend Discovery Horseback Tours! Andrea and Leeanna are wonderful. The horses are obviously very well taken care of, and they are so gentle. This was our second time with Discovery Horseback, and my family will definitely ride with them on our next visit to Jaco. A special thanks to Andrea's husband (Chris? Don't know why I am drawing...

I have loved and been drawn to horses for as long as I can remember (18 months old say my parents) and I am now almost 51yrs. I was taught to ride on my best friend’s brother’s motorbike at 8yrs. I got to ride my first horse when I was 12yrs until 16yrs. I finally got my first ‘proper’ riding... More

This was our third time to Costa Rica and the best activity we have done. We did the waterfall/spa ride and had an amazing time. This was our first time riding horses and felt at ease. The horses are rescues and very well trained. The tour takes place on a family farm whose mission is to preserve nature. We saw... More
