We booked this thru a hotel. It included horseback riding up a long very rocky trail, after what seemed like forever we arrived at the top look out point and then proceeded to walk down what felt like thousands of steep steps and across a suspended bridge to the falls. The falls are beautiful but I don't get riding up... More

Loved it! My family of 2 adults and 2 kids did this 3 hour tour that started with a horseback ride to the La Fortuna waterfall. Our guide was fantastic. He had a very calm personality, was good with my kids, trustworthy and happy to share information about Costa Rica, the rainforest and his knowledge of horses. He rode behind... More

We did the horse riding and the hike to the La Fortuna Waterfall. Our tour guide was Didier, and he was fantastic. He made us feel safe and watched the horses, and read their body language to ensure our safety. The hike was a moderate hike, and very beautiful. I recommend sneakers, pants, and bugspray for this activity.

The tour was okaaaay. You ride the horses up to the waterfall, swim (LONG hike down then LONG hike up, be careful!), then ride home along a road, with a sales pitch culture stop on the way back. If you don't spend too much, it's a good trip. If you've been on horseback tours before and this is what you... More

I booked a horseriding tour for myself and my daughter with Don Tobias/Lobos through Arenal Online and paid for it on the 22nd December 2014. Unfortunately, the company taxi did not turn up at our hotel - we waited around for over an hour trying to call the company, but they didn't pick up the phone. I have since tried... More

We went in this tour today. Yes it was amazing. We did both the horse riding and zip lining. They charged us $100 US for both activities and access to all the hotel offers after. My husband has never ridden a horse before. Staff were attentive and gave clear and good instructions. Yes it was a little wet and steep... More

I combined the La Fortuna waterfall hike with this horse riding trip. The guide was a bit shy, but when prompted, spoke passionately about his family's horse farm and his childhood breaking horses. The horses competed against each other during the tour, which I found fun, but other people felt scared of. Unlike in other horse tours in the USA,... More

I love horse back riding and enjoyed that the horses were trotting a lot but the two people with me didn't get any advice on how to make it more pleasant (going up and down with the steps). Also all we did was go straight up the road to the waterfall and then back with a 'cultural' stop in between.... More

I had very little experience riding horses, and my husband had no prior experience. The horses were very calm and sweet. I felt bad for them climbing up steep hills with loose rocky terrain to get to the waterfalls. Once at the waterfall destination, there was a difficult hike down, then up (on foot) to swim or take decent photos.... More

As a former equestrian competitor, I was delighted to tour the countryside on horseback with this company. The horses are the best I've experienced on a day trip. Our guide, Didier, breeds and trains them; they are used once a week. They are well behaved and ready to move. I highly recommend this company.
