Great horse ride.
Nov 2021 • Couples
We took a ride with Alonzo (and Hillary who was doing a practicum). The views were amazing and Alonzo made sure we got pictures of views as well as together. We were all beginners so we had some nervousness. Alonzo was very playful and calmed our nerves immediately. We saw a pair of monkeys we would have never noticed without Alonzo’s sharp eyes. I rode Mistica a beautiful mule -I don’t know why I liked riding a mule but I thought it was cool. She was responsive and well behaved as were the rest of the horses.
Great memory- great fun.

Amazing experience!
The experience was incredible! The horses looked healthy and almost seemed like they knew where to go and what to do. The guide, Alonzo, was awesome, he went above and beyond and took plenty of pictures and videos for us. I would definitely recommend.

Jun 2021
My 18 yr old son and I did this horseback ride and it was fantastic. It had been rainy, of course, so the uphill trail was muddy....I felt bad for the horses! ha! They take you to an overlook that is breathtaking and make sure everyone gets pictures on their horse before leaving. The horses are well taken care of and very friendly! Most definitely an adventure to go on when visiting Arenal :-)

Awesome experience!
We were picked up from our resort by an awesome driver named Orlando who taught us lots of information about Costa Rica and the area, including some A+ restaurant recommendations!
After arrival at Místico Park we were introduced to the horses that looked happy, healthy, and well taken care of. We rode up the mountain to a viewpoint of the volcano which was still gorgeous even with the rain clouds rolling in. I apologize for not remembering the names of our guides, but they were both very kind, and even let us gallop a little bit if we were interested. Fantastic time!

You won’t find a better view!
This is the best way to take in the jungle in our opinion! You can spot sloths and eagles and so much more. The horses are well cared for and the whole park respects when horses are going by. Your horse and guides take you to the very top where you look over everything. Arenal volcano and lake are amazing from here. Must do!

Paco’s Horses were the highlight of our trip to Arenal
We did the two hour horseback ride with Paco’s Horses. Our guides were David and Eduardo and they were amazing! We road up a hill and stopped at an amazing view that you could see the volcano and the lake. The two hour ride was the perfect length, enough to enjoy it and not get sore. David spoke really good English and was able to help us with whatever we needed. The horses were very well trained and responded perfectly even for a beginner rider like myself. We would highly recommend taking a tour with Paco’s horses!

Stunning views and freat trip
Mar 2019 • Couples
We did a combination tour of horseback riding, lunch, then naturalist tour in the afternoon. The day at Mistico was one of the most memorable of our 2 week vacation. We are both in our 50s and fit although by no means riding experts. It was quite steep and I was very nervous but by using the tips provided by the guides got through the ride easily. We had the biggest smiles!! We were with a group of mid 20s and the day was crystal clear to the volcano. Breathtaking. I'd recommend this highly to physically fit people.
