Tropical Beach Trail Costa Rica

The short horseback riding holiday with a lot of beach riding at Costa Rica´s Golden Coast.  Five nights and three days of riding, and every day walking, trotting and cantering with your horse along the beach.

Day 1

Transfer from airport to your hotel in the tiny beach village of Junquillal, your horseback riding paradise on the Pacific Ocean for the next days. Meeting with your tour guide at dinner time.

Day 2

Ride north along the tropical beach to popular golf course of Hacienda Pinilla. On the trail you pass several peaks on the cliffs to have an amazing view of the coastline. And you will visit on horseback the beaches Playa Negra and Avellanas witch are famous for their surf.  After lunch in Avellanas, with a lot of fresh seafood and fish dishes available, ride back on hidden trails, passing teak wood farms on the way to the hotel along the coast.  Enjoy several canters along the tropical beach and under palmtrees.

Day 3

The horseback ride starts along the beach and heads past the village of Venado where afterwards you will climb the hilly backland to have an impressive view of the coastline. You ride by huge trees of Costa Rica while monkeys, iguanas, tropical birds and butterflies keep you company. Enjoy Costa Rican’s hospitality by lunch under a typical rancho with home made food. On the way home beach gallops end the day.
