  • This was our 3rd day and our 2nd guided adventure. Be sure to call them if your ride isn’t on time. We had some challenges with that. But everything was beautiful from there. The day started with a qu...  more »

  • This is perfect, for a week of hanging out with horses, even if you're a novice. This is a great opportunity to spend time on the back of a horse, seeing the wildlife of Costa Rica and learning about ...  more »

  • Fantastic experience. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and the horses are well cared for. We rode up to a mountain waterfall and did a mud spa treatment that would have been unaffordable for us anywhere else. Great photos. Wonderful memories.
  • I have bad balance and getting up the stairs to get on the horse is hard for me. When I asked for help they told me that they weren't going to deal with it and gave me my money back. My friends all went and I had to ride in the car. I have NEVER been denied an activity before and that was extremely embarrassing. Very unprofessional.
  • These people rescue horses and dogs and provide the most beautiful and informative tour I've ever been on. Full disclosure, I woke up that morning and said "oh man do we really have to go horseback riding, I'd rather go surfing". Turns out this amazing tour with waterfall volcanic clay body spa was the highlight of my trip.
  • Discovery Horse Tours is a life-altering experience to have while in Costa Rica! The horses are gentle, well trained, sweet beasts -- most of them rescue animals who have been lovingly brought back to health and happiness to finish off their days carrying happy tourists through wonderful forests, fields, and beach trails. I was picked up at my hotel near the stables, and whisked away to a horse farm near Playa Hermosa for a helmet fitting, a quick tutorial, a brief explanation of their mission statement -- and off we went. And what a ride! We saw white faced monkeys, vultures, and every sort of tropical foliage one could hope for, all under the careful eye of our guide, who managed to keep us on our horses, while at the same time describing what we were witnessing around us. It was magical. And the most magical aspect was perhaps the owners Chris and Andrea, heroic Brits who have devoted their lives to this labor of horse love. Bravo!
  • great time buetiful views great horses fun to ride and probally one of the best parts of my costa rica trip

Where to stay in Jaco

It's no surprise that the picturesque, curving beach remains the best place to stay in Jaco. Backpacker hostels, surf clubs, mid-range hotels, and luxury beach resorts jostle for space along the crowded coastline, with the heavy competition ensuring that there's something for everyone. Look beachside of the main drag--Avenida Pastor Diaz--for the biggest selection of options, and the best access to all the highlights of Jaco. For something more secluded, stay in a spa retreat perched upon the hill behind the city.
