Relax in your air conditioned private transfer and take in the wonderful views as you are driven from San Jose International Airport to your beach front hotel in Playa Hermosa on the stunning Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
Start the day with a beautiful breakfast, then come and meet your horse for the week and enjoy the first day of your clinic. Lunch follows, and the food is always delicious, healthy and plenty of it! Relax in the shade of the trees and get ready to ride.
In the afternoon you set out into the heart of the 1300 acres for the Jungle Spa Adventure. Looking out for monkeys, toucans and parrots along the way, you weave our way around the reserve and farm, and head deep into the rainforest to a secret natural spring fed waterfall. Here you luxuriate in a volcanic clay mud scrub; your skin will feel incredible. You will emerge feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and with photos you will treasure forever.
Your second morning of your clinic will no doubt be incredible, and your horse will be ready and waiting for you. After the clinic you once more enjoy a local lunch followed by a local tour of your choice.
Whilst all your new learning sinks in, your hosts will accompany you away on a horse free day. You will visit a majestic rainforest conservation project. This place is like heaven on earth, there is no where that compares to this.
Enjoy the natural rainforest trails and suspension bridges, safely connecting the rainforest canopy this will take your breath away. Swim in the waterfalls and let nature reset your natural rhythms.
Back to learning with your third clinic session. The afternoon will see you take a well earned rest, enjoy an afternoon of much needed down time to relax in your hammock, read your book or just float in the hotel pool. Maybe end your day with a sunset walk on the beach.
Following our last day of learning with the morning clinic you will head out on the fabulous Trail Less Traveled ride.
This is an incredible trail taking you off the beaten track through deep forest, and across rural farm land, this ride is incredible and great for spotting more wildlife.
Anyone for a tropical beach ride? Quite honestly, nothing compares to this. Deserted beaches, flocks of wild scarlet macaw parrots, and endless palm trees. A once in a lifetime ride, you will never forget this.
