Great Day

Just beware, the hike is rigorous! You don’t ride the horses to the waterfall, there is a hike down and up. That being said, it was a wonderful experience. Our guide Carlos was pleasant company, had interesting and informative things to say about things alingbthe way. Our group was small. The horses are typical service animals, not flashy or pet like. Carlosntreated them with kindness which made us feel good. The waterfall (Fortuna) and swim refreshed and invigorated us while also amazing us. Worth the price and a good day.

The whole experience was great ! They pick you up from the hotel and take you to the place where the horse riding begins. The guide was excellent! Waterfall and hike were breathtaking . You have to be fit enough to hike up the last stretch to the waterfall.

tourist trap
Daniel L
, Aug 2018
A pity.The horses are injured and should be at rest.You just ride 45 minutes on a rocky way to reach the place to walk to the waterfall La Fortuna.There you have to go down the stairs ( slope of 600 meter) to reach a hole where you have 100 people bathing in a rapid river, you make a short halt and after go up the stairs.On the way back, you stop in a tourist gift shop presented as a village of natives???A real tourist trap.Buy a picture of the waterfall it is cheaper and less exhausting
