During this adventure, we will take you back to an era when life moved more slowly, and people took more time to appreciate the beauty of nature, the sounds, the colour and the energy in the air. You will appreciate the density of the forest and access to pastures located on the highest hills of the park from where you will have a stunning view of the Arenal Volcano and Lake. Then, enjoy relaxing at the Baldi Hot Springs.

Is it your first time on a horse? If so, you will be instructed by a professional guide that offers a vast knowledge of horses and how to ride them for the first time.

Your breathtaking adventure begins with a pickup from your hotel and a relaxing private drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside in air-conditioned transportation. Your guide will point out many sights of interest including coffee plantations, sugar cane and citrus plantations, diverse fruit stands and rural farming communities. You will be heading to La Fortuna Town, about 2 hours' drive from San Jose. Upon arrival to the beautiful property of Mistiko Park, you will have some free time to use the restrooms and explore the surroundings before starting the horseback ride into the rainforest.

Located in the northern lowlands of Costa Rica, the impressive Arenal Volcano is a National Park that attracts thousands and thousands of tourists due to its beauty and recent past volcanic activity. Back in the 80´s the volcano was very active, but now has reduced its activity and we could say that it has entered a period of calm. However, the beauty of the volcano and surroundings are just spectacular. Once in La Fortuna Town, a sightseeing tour will show you the highlights of the area and its rich diversity of tourist attractions, ecosystems, the lake, culture, customs and traditions of this emblematic town of Costa Rica.

At Mistiko Park, Paco's Horses combines excellent riding with fascinating introductions to the rich rainforest of Arenal. This tour includes a short visit to one of the hanging bridges during a pause in the ride. The scenery at Paco's Horses is large and breathtaking, you can't go wrong with this adventure.

Later, at Baldi Hot Springs you can enjoy the natural environment, colourful natural gardens, therapeutic waters and pure air. In here you will enjoy multiple thermal pools, a giant steam room, luxury pool bars, giant water-slides, relaxing areas and much more.

Upon arrival at Baldi Hot Springs, enjoy a delicious buffet lunch before jumping into the thermal pools. Lockers and towels are included in our tours. Stay at this paradise until 4 pm, when we will begin our return trip to the city of San Jose.

“We arrived in Puerto Limon via a cruise ship. Greenway Nature Day Tour Company had a nice air conditioned bus waiting for our cruise critic group. Our guides were both excellent and spoke English very well.
They first took us to a local artisan coffee and gift shop where we were able to try locally grown and roasted coffee. It was actually quite good. We then drove onto the first part of our tour to Cahuita National Park. What an amazing place. A nice walk along a beach area with all kinds of wildlife all around us. The guides did an excellent job of pointing all of this out from Howler Monkeys to leak cutter ants to Sloths up in the trees. We were under the cover of the trees so it was a very pleasant experience and an easy area to walk along.

We next went to a banana plantation on our route to the Tortuguero Canal. We stayed in the bus because they didn't want us to potentially spread any disease to the banana plants. However our guide went out and cut off a start of a banana bloom and brought it back to the bus and showed us all what the baby bananas look like. It was totally fascinating.

Tortuguero Canal was quite fun as well. We saw all kinds of wild-life including more sloths, all kinks of birds and even a small caiman (small alligator) in the water as well as bats sleeping under a Palm leaf. When we returned from the boat portion of the tour they had some refreshing cut fruit for us to snack on. All-in-all it was a great day and I wouldn't have planned it any differently. Thank you so much for the great tour Greenway! The price was excellent and your guides made it a really fun time for everyone.”
