Take a four-hour horseback ride In Monteverde along rustic country backroads that sit parallel to the continental divide of Costa Rica. On a clear day, you may be able to see the Arenal Volcano, and on the other side is the Pacific Ocean outside of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Take in the gorgeous Costa Rican countryside and views of the Nicoya Peninsula. You’ll get a good feel for authentic, rural Costa Rica. Now’s the time to freshen up on your Spanish with your Costa Rican cowboy as you see Toucans, monkeys and more!
