Horseback Riding & Hike

Our Costa Rica waterfall tours start off with a horseback riding adventure, which will last one hour in each direction and take you up the river and through the forest, ending at a private waterfall. After dismounting your horse, you will continue hiking for about 20 minutes on a steep trail towards a 42-meter waterfall. Once there, you can enjoy the surroundings, take pictures and rest or get in the water and even walk behind the waterfall before heading back to Lake Arenal and El Castillo.
We offer several different customizable Costa Rica hiking tours

Lunch Included in Waterfall Tour

After your waterfall tour, you will get back on your horse and ride up the mountain to get amazing views of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal and the forested hills of Monteverde. The horseback ride continues back to the Caño Negro River at which point you will travel back to El Castillo for a delicious farm-to-fork lunch experience at La Gavilana Herbs & Art. No adventure tour in Costa Rica is complete without a fresh meal to refuel!
