Horseback Riding and Banana Plantation Tour from La Cruz

    What to Expect
    Choose from three different departure times, and connect with your driver and guide at the Dreams Las Mareas resort near La Cruz. Travel to local stables, where you'll meet and mount your horse and get an overview of riding techniques and safety. As you leave the corral atop your trusted steed, ride at a relaxed pace and soak up the beauty of the surrounding tropical dry forest. Keep an eye out for native wildlife, and take a moment to appreciate stellar views of the ocean from lookout points.

    After making your way to a local banana plantation, dismount at a traditional hacienda, or country house, known as ‘El Chagüite.’ Stretch your legs here and enjoy a snack of fresh fruit and juices served by the welcoming staff. The hacienda boasts inspiring views of Salinas Bay and offers a glimpse into old-fashioned Costa Rican country life. Get a lesson in traditional cooking as you help prepare homemade tortillas and other popular local treats like biscochos (shortbread cookies), cajeta (caramel sauce), and tanelas (a honey pastry) using a rustic clay oven.

    After enjoying your snack just like locals have done for generations, climb back on your horse and return to the stables. The 3-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at Dreams Las Mareas.
