Guanacaste: Tropical Adventure 2021
Come with us to ride in this piece of paradise just a few minutes from the famous white beach of Guanacaste, one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica. We will be in a beautiful ranch, where the most beautiful Creole and Pasos horses are bred and tamed; immersed in the tropical forest, you will be lucky enough to be able to see abundant wildlife. A true enchanted corner where there will be space for non-riders: there are so many local attractions, there will be spoiled for choice between pristine beaches, natural parks, volcanoes and traditional festivals.
