Arenal to Monteverde Horseback Ride

You'll travel the old-fashioned way… Our horseback ride is recommended for horse lovers and adventurers of all levels. We take a very scenic and safe trail along the Arenal Lake where you'll get several glimpses of the famous and very active Arenal Volcano and ride beside lush and beautiful rainforest – try and spot toucans, Montezuma Oropendolas, sloths, monkeys, the elusive "paca" and other tropical creatures.

The lake trail is safe all year-round, plus we have excellently-cared-for-horses – guaranteed! Please let us know your level of riding ability from novice to expert and your approximate weight and height, so we can properly fit you for your horse.

Note: If you have a rental car, we can arrange shuttle it around Lake Arenal for an extra charge of $70. We can recommend a responsible shuttle driver but it is your responsibility (for insurance purposes, etc.) to get proper authorization from your rental car agency and put the driver on as an additional driver to your contract for the day of the tour. Please note this in the comments if you'd like information on this.
