Upon meeting your expert guide at your Puntarenas cruise pier, you will begin your hour-long journey through the beautiful Coast Rican countryside in the comfort of an air-conditioned deluxe vehicle or minibus. Along the way, your knowledgeable local guide will provide an entertaining narrative of history and anecdotes as you pass by mango, coffee, sugar, and citrus plantations, diverse fruit stands, and rural farming communities.

Upon arrival at the scenic property along the Central Pacific Coast and Tarcoles River, you may take the time to visit the restrooms and explore the surrounding area before saddling up your horse. A genuine English-speaking cowboy will greet you and help choose the perfect horse for you based on your experience. Following a brief presentation of instructions, your 2-hour horseback adventure begins using the authentic western saddle. Whether you are a seasoned rider or a first-timer, our authentic, professional guide will keep you safe as you explore the real Costa Rica! You will follow your guide down the trail as they lead you through the jungle.

You will discover a wide array of wildlife including huge crocodiles, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys, and aquatic birds as you venture through mangroves, the rainforest, the beach, and the Tarcoles River. Upon returning to the stables, you will embark on an hour-long river journey to gain an up close and personal look at one of the largest wild crocodile populations in the world. Your boat captain will navigate the special riverboats along the Tarcoles River where you can spot the resident reptiles basking on the banks. Get an up-close yet very safe view of these spectacular creatures. Do not forget your camera for your hour-long boat adventure.

When the river portion comes to an end, you will board your air-conditioned transportation to be returned to your Puntarenas cruise pier.

Beautiful horseback ride

The horseback riding was the best. We stolled through the countryside and along the beach. We all had a great time. It was my daughters first time horseback riding and the guide stuck by her side the entire time, made sure she felt safe. Excellent excursion.

We really enjoyed the horseback riding. We got paired with some beautiful horses, the trail throug the country was amazing. For us the best part of our excursion was the crocodile safari. My boys were so excited. We got really close to them, or at least as close as we could. HUGE!!!

Beach, horses, and so much more!
     5/5  (Visited on January 2022)
This was the best day ever. Best part of our cruise by far. Start to finish our guide was attentive, accomodating, friendly. The horses are so beautiful and in great shape. We got to take them through the countryside and by the beach. Awesome!!! We got a thrill on the safari, seeing some crocodiles. A little too close for me, but my kids and husband loved it! Thank you for a great day!

Our guide matched us up with the perfect horse. The tour on horseback was great, I even got her to gallop for a while. Amazing. We went to the beach and through the jungle... so much fun. Shout out to our guide for an excellent time.
