“I loved the horseback riding.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

I spent four nights in one of their stable rooms. I rode wonderful horses for three days. The room included breakfast. The rides included lunch. The food was great, and everybody was friendly and helpful.

They have several stables, each with many horses. Because it was the off season, I never saw another guest. I had two guides, one spoke only Spanish and guided the horses. The other, Donald, was a trained tour guide who spoke great English. Donald knows all the birds, animals, and plants of the area.

We saw sloth, howler monkeys, iguanas, wild pigs, and a large variety of birds. We rode on the edge of fields, following along rain forests and rivers. We rode in the river. It was great fun. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
