Discovery Horseback Tours is so much more then a riding holiday and totally suitable for any level from never ridden to experienced rider. Andrea and Chris are the prefect hosts and tour guides. The only thing that is more important to them then your holiday is the welfare of the horses. Better cared for, trained and contented horses would be... More

Andrea will welcome you and fit you to a horse. All the horses are well taken care of and gentle. The ride was outstanding. We saw lots of wildlife and heard howler monkeys. We saw rainforest that has been untouched. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This is a magical experience for any animal/wildlife lover. You don't have to be a skilled horse person as rides are tailored to your ability but experienced riders will not be disapointed either. Andrea and Chris are extremely welcoming and will look after your every needs. The beautiful horses are very well cared for and will take you on rides... More

My fiancé and I booked the Tropical Trails vacation with Discovery and couldn’t have been happier with our choice. Just as all the other reviewers have described, Andrea, Chris and the Discovery team are extremely friendly, open and caring people and their horses are phenomenal! The... More

If you have ever thought about horse riding on the beach, riding through the jungle, swimming under waterfalls, nourishing your body with volcanic mud, if you love nature and animals, six days in paradise with Andrea and Chris is an experience of a lifetime. The horses are beautifully cared for, they will take you on an adventure that you never... More

This was my first time ever riding a horse and everything went perfect for me. They will give you the right horse for your riding experience. The ride is totally worth it and the view inside the forest is gorgeous! The tour guide will explain you everything about the forest and the horses behavior and also will be your photographer....

My husband and I did Discovery's Tropical Trails six-night trip as part of a longer trip to Costa Rica in January 2016. We fell in love with both Costa Rica and Discovery. Starting from the beginning. Andrea's communication and assistance with finding dates to fit our itinerary were excellent. The accommodation arranged for us in Playa Hermosa was lovely. The... More

Discovery Tours came highly recommended as having the best loved horses ever. So true and so much more! The whole experience was delightful. We were picked up at our little hotel in Jaco by our guide, Leanne, and an intern. We had a great time just chatting during the drive to the stable which was in a beautiful area and... More

Our Discovery Horseback tour thru the rainforest to the waterfalls and volcanic mud bath was one of the most memorable adventures we have ever experienced. The people, horses, and scenery were fabulous. I highly recommend this tour, and it should not be missed if you visit this area.
