Let Don Gilberto and his family show you the real Costa Rica – on horseback! Once they pick you up you will begin the adventure in history and nature, starting with the Quepos Indians. Enjoy learning about Costa Rica’s exotic plants and rare wildlife as you ride through the tropical jungle and private ecological reserve at Tocori, just minutes away from Manuel Antonio.
After a relaxing hour-long ride on horseback through the tropical rain forest – with the pace determined by your comfort level and riding ability – leave your horses on the trail as Don Gilberto or his daughter Dyala guide you through the exotic plant and animal life on a nature walk. They will let you observe, touch, smell, and even taste the real Costa Rican jungle firsthand.
After indulging your mind and spirit with expert knowledge, take a refreshing dip in pristine natural mountain waters while being playfully splashed by a stunning Tocori Waterfall.
There you will enjoy the unforgettable taste of local fresh fruits and tropical drink whilst relaxing and cooling off next to the waterfalls. After your refreshments, you’re ready for a ride through meandering Tocori streams to the private Rancho.
Here you will enjoy a homemade Costa Rican “Casado” – a typical Costa Rican dish. Let us, show you our private herb and plant garden, as they educate locals and visitors alike on how to preserve the indigenous plant and herb varieties of their beautiful country. Ask how you can help preserve the tropical rain forest and inform others about the true beauty and biodiversity of Costa Rica.
