About the tour

Tour times: 8:00am, 10:30am, 1:30pm

Tour duration: Approximately 3.5 hours

Tour includes: Horseback riding tour, guide, and round-trip transportation to/from La Fortuna hotels (hotels that fall outside of the regular transportation zone may have an additional fee; leave us a comment at the bottom of this page if you wish us to confirm the transportation amount that would apply to/from your specific hotel)

Tour operator’s description: After being prepared with the security instructions, you will set off, accompanied by our guide, along the 3 km. (2 mile) trail, riding through reforested areas and private farms until we reach the Pino Blanco Waterfall lookout. Along the way you will delight in the vegetation of the mature forests along the La Fortuna River, cross the thrilling hanging bridge, and discover some of the frogs, toucans, insects, and monkeys who make this area their home. Once we arrive to the majestic La Fortuna Waterfall and river, you will have the opportunity to take pictures, or climb in for a refreshing swim, or just enjoy the breeze off the water and the beauty of the river canyon of over 100 meters (320 ft.) in height. We will double back and return to the reception area on the same trail, passing again by the beautiful Pino Blanco Waterfall for one more view. Along the ride back, you will have the chance to visit the Maleku Indian Cultural Rescue Center. In this small representative project you will learn about the traditional dress, cultures, crafts, beliefs, and language of these cultural ancestors of Costa Rica. Horseback riding experience is not necessary for this exciting adventure. Our guides will provide you with the basic riding instructions and the confidence you need to start riding. Our healthy and tame horses will give you a very enjoyable ride.

    • Jamie –

      Thanks so much for your interest!

      Our discounts are set soon after the tour operators release their rates for each new year. The trouble is, each tour operator varies from the next in terms of when they release their rates. Some released them back in the spring (of 2017, in early anticipation of the 2018 year), and others will wait until the last week of December to figure them out. Our general rule is that we continue using 2017 season rates until we are informed to do otherwise. In other words, if we haven’t yet been told to increase the original tour prices for the next year (which in turn would increase our discounted rates), we simply use the current 2017 season rates when making 2018 season reservations.

      For your 2018 trip, feel free to submit a tour quote request form here (or more than one form, depending on the number of tours you are interested in) and our team can get back to you with quotes for the item(s) you have your eye on. If the tour you request a quote for already has a 2018 season rate set by the tour operator, we can let you know what that price is. Alternatively, if the tour operator hasn’t yet set a 2018 season rate for the tour, we can book it for you at the 2017 season rate if you choose to reserve it in advance. If you would prefer to wait to book until later, you can certainly do so, however if between the time we send you the quote and the time you officially reserve the tour the tour operator releases their 2018 rates and there is a price increase, we will be required to enforce the new 2018 rate at that time (previously-reserved tours would already be confirmed at the 2017 rate).

      Pura vida!
