Horseback Riding with Safari Boat Combo

Spend the day immersed in nature as you explore the beautiful, panoramic country of Costa Rica by boat and on horseback.

Your breathtaking adventure begins as you are picked up directly at the port by your expert, local guide and chauffeured in air-conditioned comfort through the beautiful countryside to a private property along the Tarcoles River. Along the way your guide will point out many sights of interest including mango, coffee, sugar and citrus plantations, diverse fruit stands and rural farming communities.

Upon arrival to your destination you will be greeted by an English-speaking cowboy and will have time to explore the area before saddling up. After considering your experience and needs your cowboy will pair you with the perfect horse and conduct an instructional briefing. Then it's off into the spectacular Costa Rican wilderness on horseback as you make your way through this lush rainforest and the mangroves! New to horseback riding? No worries, your cowboy will be with your every step of the way to ensure your safety and comfort. Ride along the beach and check out the river with its huge crocodiles, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys and so much more that awaits you.

After concluding the horseback riding portion of the tour, you will board a boat to experience the Tarcoles River at water level, up-close and personal. This river is home to the world's largest population of wild crocodiles, which makes for a thrilling ride!

Conclude your tour at the pier area where you can either board your cruise ship or spend some time strolling along the boulevard and observing the locals on your own.

This popular 6-hour tour sells out fast! Reserve your horse today and get ready to experience the adventure of a lifetime on the wild side of Costa Rica.

A Great Day in Costa Rica
January 31, 2020
The morning was taken up with a relaxing horse-back ride through the jungle, along the river and finally through the surf along the beach. The guide was informative and allowed moments of quiet to enjoy the surroundings. The afternoon was very interesting. The guide on the Safari Boat was very knowledgeable about all the wildlife on the river and gave us up close encounters with crocodiles at several locations on the river.

Crocodiles and gorgeous beach
January 08, 2019
I found the tour guide to be outstanding as we headed south for this excursion. The boat operator was fantastic in getting up close to crocodiles. The horseback riding was such a treat as we toured thru rain forest on the way to the ocean. We stopped at a really nice souvenir shop on the way back and I found some beautiful wooden bowls made by local indians at a unbelievably low price. The only glitch was a passenger from the cruise ship that didn't read the limitations and then again refused to stay behind while others did a walk thru a rain forest (while we rode horses) and then he delayed everyone because he could not walk back. Customer service (in Fort Lauderdale) was first class when I called to figure out why the shuttle had not come back to get us. She tracked down the tour guide for the update on the passenger problem and let me know they were running 30 minutes late and sent someone be stay us until the shuttle arrived.Very impressed with this customer service.

Horseback Ridling and Safari Boat Combo

This was the best day on the cruise. It was a fun packed day. We were the only ones on the ship who did the horseback riding so we had a nice long ride through the rain forest and out in the surf on the beach. It was a blast. I highly recommend this.
