Horseback from La Fortua to Monteverde

Hi there!

We going to Costa Rica at Christmas and want to travel by horse back from La Fortuna to Monteverde combined with the boat trip across the lake. Can anyone recommend a company that treats the horses well.... I've come across Deafio and Mirador Lodge....

Many thanks

I've heard DeSafio is the best - that's who we will be using in April. On their web sit are pictures of the horses and they look great. Have fun.

In some ways horses are like humans...out of a group...you can always think who is in better shape...and many times we are wrong...the horses you are renting for that journey are small (most of the time) working horses...even that they do not look good that is the way they are!!

I hear good things about Desafios...and hopefully they treat the horses well!!

Nice ride... alot to see!! Enjoy it!!

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in paradise!!
