Sweet horses, gorgeous waterfall. It was raining quite hard at times , as it does so often here in Costa Rica, but it didn’t stop us from having a terrific time on this tour

Not worth the money

The tour was planned to 4 our, it took 2,5 our.. Up of the trays with rocks and stone all over.. The poor horses was skinny and fought with a terrain, who wasnt good for their legs. No good animal welfare. Beautifull waterfall.

Friendly, helpful guide, amazing waterfall!

Rode horses up for 30 minutes to the top of the steps to go down to the waterfall. It's about 400 steps. The horses were well behaved. The guide was very friendly. He went down to the waterfall with us and stayed with our bag while we went into the waterfall pool and did waterfall pictures. Even in the rain it was good tour.

Horseback riding/water falls

Excellent time. I have been riding for many years and these horses were well behaved and well kept. The guide was also very knowledgeable about his botany. We were lucky enough to see howler monkeys and a hawk on our ride and hike. The trek down to the waterfall is steep but well worth it. I would recommend bring a small bag with water a snack and a camera. They provide fresh fruit after tour, but would definitely recommend having breakfast first and snack if you get hungry easily. I thought they were providing lunch and I was famished by the end of the ride. Our guide Paz was interactive and hilarious. Definitely would do this trip again.

Great Day

Just beware, the hike is rigorous! You don’t ride the horses to the waterfall, there is a hike down and up. That being said, it was a wonderful experience. Our guide Carlos was pleasant company, had interesting and informative things to say about things alingbthe way. Our group was small. The horses are typical service animals, not flashy or pet like. Carlosntreated them with kindness which made us feel good. The waterfall (Fortuna) and swim refreshed and invigorated us while also amazing us. Worth the price and a good day.

Amazing!

The whole experience was great ! They pick you up from the hotel and take you to the place where the horse riding begins. The guide was excellent! Waterfall and hike were breathtaking . You have to be fit enough to hike up the last stretch to the waterfall.

tourist trap
Daniel L
, Aug. 2018
A pity.The horses are injured and should be at rest.You just ride 45 minutes on a rocky way to reach the place to walk to the waterfall La Fortuna.There you have to go down the stairs ( slope of 600 meter) to reach a hole where you have 100 people bathing in a rapid river, you make a short halt and after go up the stairs.On the way back, you stop in a tourist gift shop presented as a village of natives???A real tourist trap.Buy a picture of the waterfall it is cheaper and less exhausting
