Overview

Be picked up from any of the tourist hotels in Fortuna. We take them to the stable where the journey begins. This tour is approximately 1 hour, where you see a great variety of flora and fauna, plus spent three natural rivers, our guides will explain what is going to see during the trip. About 300 meters before reaching the waterfall stop the horses and undertake a short hike to the waterfall where they have about 1 hour to swim in the refreshing waters, take pictures or simply enjoy the peace and quiet to live there. After that we return that lasts about 1 hour.

The horses on my visit were in reasonably good condition but the bosal bitless bridles were fitted way to low and tight which would be very uncomfortable especially if ridden by beginners. The actual trek is pleasant and the waterfall wonderful. The horses were sound...More
