Our group of four, from 6 to 72, all had a wonderful day riding horses in Monteverde. My husband and 6-year-old had never ridden a horse and they both were well taken care of. This trip is not your normal horse ride through the mountains. At times I would say it was even challenging, which made it memorable! Alonzo,our guide, was awesome. We got to practice our Spanish with him throughout the day. We stopped at a local shop, had refreshments and saw the most amazing hummingbirds, then went to a waterfall where we swam and played before heading back. A wonderful day and highly recommended. Don't miss this while in Monteverde.
