Learn what it's like to be a real Costa Rican cowboy on this full-day horseback riding adventure. Saddle up your horse and hop-on for a ride along a stunning track on a small farm. Break for a small picnic and drop by a local bar for a quick refreshment.
What to Expect
Get a feel for what it’s like to be a Costa Rican cowboy on this unique horseback riding experience. Start off by preparing your horse for the ride and learn how to saddle up! Your Costa Rican cowboy will then describe the type of equipment used in Costa Rica. Once the horse is ready, you'll head out on an all-day excursion with local horse legend Marvin Anchia.

Marvin has trained and ridden some of the most famous horses in Costa Rica. The story goes that he started riding before he was born, since his mother rode while she was pregnant! Follow him to a gorgeous track on a small farm owned by him and his wife Janet.

After a few hours of riding, the local cowboy will prepare a small picnic by the side of the river where you can relax and take in the surrounding nature. Afterwards, stop by a local bar for a quick beer or soft drink before returning to the stable.
