If you are staying in any of the beach resorts near Tamarindo, one of the must do
activities in Costa Rica is a visit to Hacienda Norma, a 150 year old working horse and cattle ranch on over 1400 acres of primary and secondary forest that could be considered the mecca of ecotourism in Guanacaste. Rivers, streams and waterfalls hidden throughout the ranch provide safe haven for Costa Rica´s wildlife, but even better is that it is the perfect setting for the most scenic pastures and trails for horseback riding in Costa Rica in addition to mountain biking trails and the Pura Aventura canopy tour.
Whether it´s your very first time on a horse or you´re an old pro at this, you´re sure to have fun on our Pura Aventura Horseback Riding tour in Tamarindo!

For those who are new to riding, our horses will offer a slow, steady and mellow exploration crossing rivers and streams through the landscape and mountains surrounding Tamarindo and throughout Guanacaste.
