Horseback riding to La Fortuna Waterfall

This fun tour is a combination of horseback riding and hiking in the beautiful scenery by Arenal Volcano on the way to the La Fortuna Waterfall. Sturdy Costa Rican horses will take you through pastures, forest and hills to the entrance of the waterfall. The views of the Arenal valley and tropical forest are spectacular. The stunning La Fortuna Waterfall plunges more than 65 meters (213 feet) through dense rainforest into a mist-shrouded pool. At the waterfall, you will leave the horses and hike 300 steps down a steep trail to the base of the waterfall. The pool right beneath the falls is too rough for swimming, but there are several perfect swimming holes a little bit downstream. Afterward, you will hike back up to the top and ride back to the stables.
