Discover the beauty and mystique of Costa Rica on a Hidden Trails horse riding vacation. Hidden Trails is delighted to introduce several horse riding tours and other adventure trips in Costa Rica. Every adventure tourist must experience the wonders of this beautiful country and enjoy meeting the friendly Ticos, (Costa Ricans) who welcome visitors with open arms and friendly smiles. Costa Rica is a land gifted with beauty at every turn – from the cloud forests to the jungle; the golden beaches to volcanoes and waterfalls. A horse riding holiday in Costa Rica is as rewarding as it is exotic.
Horse Riding in Costa Rica
Hidden Trails offer a range of horse riding holidays in Costa Rica. On the more remote Caribbean Coast we offer two wonderful rides that include beach and jungle riding. The Caribbean Border Trail includes riding to the border with Panama and the Rustico del Caribe is an inexpensive riding option that can be customized for you.
On the Pacific Coast we have a few options to choose from as well. From the short Costa Rica Escape ride or Pacific Coast Getaway to the longer Conquistadores Odyssey Ride that explores the beaches of the Pacific, the Monteverde Cloud Forest, Lake and Volcano Arenal and finally the Fortuna Waterfalls. A Multi
Sport trip rounds off the the trips on the Pacific Coast side.
A new ride in the area of the Volcano Arenal was recently added to explore the breathtaking countryside of central Costa Rica. The Arenal Volcano Journeys can easily be combined with rides on the Pacific or Caribbean coast.
Finally, but not least, we have several exciting offers in the northern part of Costa Rica - Guanacaste. The Three Ticos trail explores a traditional ranch with great facilities and then spends some days at beach resort at Tamarindo with some riding, relaxation and optional spa treatments. The Old Spanish Trail offers some of the finest Criollo horses in Costa Rica. Explore the mountains, the beach and relax at the finca for a few days or extend your trip with an excursion to Arenal. A few beach hotel options for just relaxation round off the trips in Guanacaste.
The magic and beauty of Costa Rica has so much to offer to the 700,000 visitors who come each year. Nature's Parade includes 11 volcanoes, hot springs to bath in, 13,000 species of plants, more than 2000 species of butterflies, 220 species of reptiles, 1600 species of fish in both fresh water and ocean and 850 species of birds.
