Costa Rica stands out in Latin America for its well preserved environment and smoothly running,
democratic government. It has no army and nearly a quarter of the country is given over to national
parks where flora and fauna are well protected. It has stunning biodiversity from beaches and
jungles to active volcanoes. All this plus the fact that it is easy to reach from the United States makes
horseback riding in Costa Rica a marvelous choice for an equestrian adventure.
Riders can canter along the beaches, wind through jungle trails on the sides of mountains near active
volcanoes and observe unique wildlife and vegetation. There are majestic trees where monkeys
scamper, many kinds of orchids, butterflies and hundreds of different, exotic birds from hummingbirds
to parrots. The local people are reputed to be some of the happiest in the world and they are certainly
friendly to Americans. The country is a delightful oasis in a troubled world. You will return home with
lovely memories of your horseback riding vacation in Costa Rica.
