Horseback or Zipline--same sights?

Hi, We are visiting the Nicoya Peninsula in March and are trying to plan some activities for our family. Right now we are considering the El Pinto Horseback riding tour and the Montezuma Canopy Waterfall zipline tour, which are both highly regarded here on TripAdvisor. Would you recommend we do both or are they just two different views of the same waterfalls? If they are too similar, would you recommend we do the Mal Pais zipline tour offered by the same company instead?

The horse back tour takes you to Cocolito falls which is a fair distance down the beach. The zipline goes over Montezuma falls which is in the Hills of Montezuma. Both great tours, Beautiful!

Thank you! That's a big help. I've now located both waterfalls on a map and can see that they are distinct from one another and both worth visiting. Thanks!

I've heard nothing but awesome things about El Pinto Horse tours. Happy healthy horses. Have a blast!

You're right - completely different waterfalls - in opposite directions. The zipline makes a stop at Montezuma falls (you can also hike there - 20 minute walk). El Pinto goes by horse along the beaches to Cocolito falls.

I've been told that is called Cocolito beach but that the falls are called

El Chorro Waterfalls. Does that sound right? or is somewhere else

"El Chorro"?

Thank you,
