What to Bring for Caribe Ride

The tone here is casual wear - it is not necessary to dress up to go to dinner. Comfortable lightweight is best.

We recommend for women to ride in leggings with a big shirt over them.  The legging is not too hot, and they dry out quickly if they get wet.

It is suggested to bring your own riding helmet. The stable does not provide riding helmets nor is it mandatory to wear one. Bicycle helmet can be borrowed.

SENSIBLE PRECAUTIONS.... Almost all encounters with noxious insects & plants can be avoided by watching where you walk or sit, by not touching non-recognizable insects, plants, etc; tucking pants in your socks, by using an insect repellent, by spraying shoes and ankles to avoid bites, by always following tour guide's instructions to the letter and finally, avoid using perfumes, after-shave, or other scents that will attract insects. We recommend you leave valuables at home.

Most important of all to bring to Costa Rica: "Sense of adventure, open mind and  big smile"
