Horseback Riding at La Fortuna!
HORSEBACK RIDING TO LA FORTUNA WATERFALL
Starting the horse back ride through our 560 hectare (1400 acre) farm at an elevation of 400 meter (1200 ft.) MSL, accompanied by a professional and bilingual guide, riding a well trained horse accustomed to non experienced and experienced riders alike, you will enjoy this adventure.
The first hour will take you through open spaces until you reach the Fortuna River where we ford the river in an area that is safe for the horses and riders, after which we reach the main road that reaches the waterfall, where we must travel along this public road for about 15 minutes until we reach the falls.
Once at the main entrance we may enter and descend to the base of this great and beautiful waterfall where you may swim or simply take pictures.
A beautiful example of the Costa Rican country site will be found along the way, cattle farms and agriculture, also the chance to see some birds as oropendolas and toucans. After that you have to walk five hundred meters into the forest to get to the waterfall, which is 70 meters high.
At the base of the waterfall there is a “natural pool” where we can swim in the fresh water of La Fortuna river for about one hour.
The La Fortuna Waterfall offers some of the most gorgeous scenery in all of Costa Rica. The 70-meter ribbon of water falls into a great swimming hole, surrounded by lush tropical forest, protected by the local conservation project.
The water below is a greenish-blue that makes for a pleasing view.
