Horseback Ride in La Fortuna

A horseback ride to the beautiful waterfall of La Fortuna is probably the most comfortable way to enjoy the picturesque landscape of Arenal Volcano. Our experienced guides will show you the path to the entrance of the waterfall where you have the chance to swim in the refreshing waters surrounded by lush green jungle.

A Magical Place: The La Fortuna Waterfall

The La Fortuna Waterfall is a natural attraction located in the Northern Zone, just 20 minutes from downtown La Fortuna of San Carlos. The journey begins, depending on your experience, with a short introduction on horseback riding by a member of the Varela family from the Z13 community. Afterwards, you are ready to go to enjoy the 50 minutes horseback ride to the Waterfall. While the horses have to stay at the entrance, you will descend into the magical nature of this place, crossing bridges till you reach the waterfall. During the short hike of 15 minutes, you can hear the sounds of the forest and with a bit of luck spot toucans, monkeys and other animals. In the area of the waterfall you can take a bath  in its chilly, yet refreshing water and have a rest in the natural reserve, enjoying the beautiful waterfall, reaching up to a height of 70 meters. Afterwards you will hike back and take a horseback ride to the farm of the Varela family.
