Pura Aventura Horseback Riding

Located in the Guanacaste region, the 150 year-old horse and cattle ranch Hacienda La Norma offers a horseback riding tour to explore its 1,300 acres (526 ha) of natural terrain.

Pura Aventura provides calm horses that are trained to be friendly and accommodating throughout the two-hour trip. The well-kept horses indulge the beginning rider desiring a laid-back stroll through old growth forest or the experienced rider who wants to gallop across the pastures.

The horseback riding tour is an excellent opportunity to discover the ranch’s natural wonders. Hacienda La Norma boasts hundreds of acres of forests, pastures, hills, six rivers, waterfalls, and natural springs. During a ride you can cross pastures and gallup up forested hills all the way to a mountain with a lovely view. During the rainy season, you'll have additional opportunities to ford rivers, and see lagoons and waterfalls. Many different types of animals may be seen during this tour, including monkeys, colorful birds, and deer.

The tour’s minimum age is 5 years old. There are horses for every riding level.
