Know More about this tour

After being prepared with the security instructions, you will set off, accompanied by our guide, along the 3 km. (2 mile) trail, riding through reforested areas and private farms until we reach the Pino Blanco Waterfall lookout.

Along the way you will delight in the vegetation of the mature forests along the La Fortuna River, cross the thrilling hanging bridge, and discover some of the frogs, toucans, insects, and monkeys who make this area their home.

Once we arrive to the majestic La fortuna waterfall and river, you will have the opportunity to take pictures, or climb in for a refreshing swim, or just enjoy the breeze off the water and the beauty of the river canyon of over 100 meters (320 ft.) in height.

You will double back and return to the reception area on the same trail, passing again by the beautiful Pino Blanco Waterfall for one more view.

Along the ride back, you will have the chance to visit the Maleku Indian Cultural Rescue Center. In this small representative project you will learn about the traditional dress, cultures, crafts, beliefs, and language of these cultural ancestors of Costa Rica.

Horseback riding experience is not necessary for this exciting adventure. The guides will provide you with the basic riding instructions and the confidence you need to start riding. Our healthy and tame horses will give you a very enjoyable ride.

    Just beware, the hike is rigorous! You don’t ride the horses to the waterfall, there is a hike down and up. That being said, it was a wonderful experience. Our guide Carlos was pleasant company, had interesting and informative things to say about things alingbthe way. Our group was small. The horses are typical service animals, not flashy or pet like. Carlosntreated them with kindness which made us feel good. The waterfall (Fortuna) and swim refreshed and invigorated us while also amazing us. Worth the price and a good day.
