Rustico del Caribe Ride
Caribbean Coast Costa Rica
Costa Rica's Caribbean coast feels a world apart from the rest of the country...

Here the pace is slower, the food is spicier, the tropical heat more palpable and then there's that rhythmic reggae music that fills the air! So remote was the Caribbean coast from Costa Rica's population centers in the Central Valley that it naturally developed a unique culture all its own. The original inhabitants of the area included the people of the Bribri, Cabécar, and Kékoldi tribes and these groups still maintain their cultures on indigenous reserves in the Talamanca Mountains today. Here we offer a horseback vacation full of vibrant culture, contrasting landscapes and a true appreciation for the nature around us. Explore the area around the Cahuita National Park, ride across the famous Caribbean beaches and venture inland through the jungle to the highlands. Enjoy lovely canters and ride on interesting jungle trails, where we see baby howler monkeys, sloths, jungle cats and get to know all about the local fauna conservation by the renowned Spanish biologists.

This is a great budget-minded and backpacker style Caribbean getaway ride that can be customized for 4 to 6 nights. Accommodations are in very basic, but cute and clean cabins at the popular riding center, just 150 feet from the beach!

The town of Cahuita and your host Brigitte have a relaxed relationship with traveling folk discovering their beloved Caribbean coast, beaches and protected park land. Here you will find that most of the businesses are still owned by friendly locals and the vibe is very laid-back, keeping an authentic sleepy beach town feel while others grow busier each year with tourists. The black sand beach of Playa Negra is an unusual and ethereal presence and the waters are safe to swim and play in, offering horseback riders and beach bums a chance for some true R&R... Relaxation and Riding!
