“Jungle Spa Horsebackriding Adventure - great fun with kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Do it! This was my daugther's favorite part of our Costa Rica vacation, tied with surfing in Jaco. I (mom) & kids (8 & 11) found the beginning of the ride a bit hot/humid, but quickly recovered in the shade of the jungle canopy, and then the waterfall/swimming holes were all the more refreshing. We had such a great time playing in the water. Our guide was excellent and spoke English well. The short hike up from the waterfall was also nice, as he entertained us with just the right amount of interesting info & tricks using the local plants, and that provided a few natural rest points. He also went above & beyond by giving us extra sunscreen & by taking and emailing pictures. A few tips: wear clothing with good sun protection that you can swim in (okay to ride back damp & no place to change at waterfall). There are clean bathrooms at the start/end of the trip, and the office safely held some items for us during the ride. No need to carry water, as they provided some along with a nice fruit snack at the waterfall. We will definitely do this again next time we're there!

“Amazing Horseback Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I live in Costa Rica and brought my son and a few of his friends to ride horses...the tour was amazing!!! The views were breathtaking and the tour guides were incredibly helpful...especially since I was with younger children(12 and 13 year olds). Bottom line is I have only good things to say...definitely an experience not to be passed up!!!!

I had an execelent time. I am out of shape and the guide stopped and waited on me. I learner a lot about the nature of Costa Rica. If you want you want to find yourself you deffinatly need to take this tour. I'm an experienced rider but it had been a while. These guides of mine elisiar and Roy helped me find my way back to my ridding skills.

“Incredible adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I am not used to riding horses but I went with my friends who were. Although I was scared and my horse knew it, the guides on my tour made me feel so comfortable and instructed me how to ride and bond with my horse. It was a beautiful experience, however, I would of jumped off my horse and ran along side him if it weren't for my wonderful guides who gave me the confidence to continue. I am so proud I completed this trail. The waterfall was breath taking. The landscape and raw Costa Rican earth was vibrant. This was the ultimate way to end my vacation. I recommend this tour to anyone. Everyone with me was experienced with ridding, they ran with their horses while the other guide allowed me to trot and go slow and try galloping. It was awesome. The horses theirselves were beautiful and healthy and well maintained. WOW
