We had an amazing day horseback riding with Centaura. It’s a great way to experience the jungle, sugarcane fields and mountains. The horses are very well trained and our daughters (age 6 and 8) had no problem rinding them selves. The guides are extremely friendly....More

My husband and I took a lovely 3-hour ride with Dany through beautiful country. When we arrived, we toured the stable, which is well-maintained, and took a look at their horses, which are obviously well-cared-for. We are horse owners, and when we discussed with Dany...More

Best if you take a private transfer from the airport, The rate is $140 for a private transfer. You can also take a public bus but it takes way longer.
