You get to gallop, canter, and trot. SOOO much fun. The guide was very good and pointed out lots of amazing animals. We saw a sloth and a family of spider monkeys. The tour starts at the springs hotel so it is very close to town and other hotels. The guides name that we had was Marvin so ask for him. Unlike rides in the USA where the guide always goes first and you can only walk following the giude, here the guide lets you go first and ride the horse as you see fit (Galloping).
