Horseback Riding

Rancho Amalia specializes in guided horseback riding tours around the farm trails.  We have 10 horses allowing us to provide personalized service to our clients. We have three different tours:

  • Short Tour: approximately two kilometers (30-40 minutes). This tour passes through a beautiful forest rich in native flora and fauna.
  • Medium Tour: four kilometers (60-80 minutes). In addition to the forest, this tour includes passing through pastures with incredible views of the Valle Central (Central Valley), the Pacific Ocean, and the majestic mountains surrounding Zarcero.
  • Long Tour: six kilometers (120-150 minutes). This tour is everyone’s favorite because of the diverse scenery. The horses and their riders parade through forests, pastures, and river crossings.
