We booked a horseback riding excursion with Arenal Wilberth Stables through our hotel. They promptly picked us up in a nice, air conditioned van and brought us to the stables. We met our tour guide, Enrique, and our horses, Abuelo and Apache. Enrique gave us the basics about horseback riding and we were off! He even took my camera to take pictures of me and my husband along the way. Throughout the trip, Enrique was giving us a lot of information about the area we were going through. The views of Arenal Volcano were breathtaking!
Unfortunately, I got ill in the middle of the trip. Enrique was very comforting, helped me off of my horse, and give me a certain type of plant to smell to make me feel better. When I did not feel comfortable enough to continue the journey, he called for an ATV to come and pick me up and bring me back. The ATV was there in less than 10 minutes, and I rode back, while my husband and Enrique finished the trail. Upon arriving back at the office, they gave me a cold bottle of water and offered for me to sit in the air conditioned van.
Their hospitality and how they cared for me when I did not feel well speaks a lot! Thank you to everyone who works there -- if we are ever in Fortuna again, we will definitely go back!
