Monteverde Equus Farm Tour
The Monteverde Equus Farm Tour is a 2-in-1 tour that combines 2.5 hours of horseback riding with a 30-minute Sugarcane Tour led by local instructors who work at the farm. You will have a great sense of belonging to the Monteverde Equus family and experience a more authentic, less touristy side of Monteverde.
Wonderful Horseback Riding Experience at Equus Monteverde
The Monteverde Equus farm features a beautiful setting in the countryside of Monteverde. Situated on the outskirts of Monteverde, our horseback ride takes place around the farm through pastures, cattle, mountains, and coffee plantations.
You will surround yourself with nature with amazing views, overlooking three volcanoes (Miravalles, Tenorio, and Rincón de la Vieja) and the Gulf of Nicoya. The terrain and the countryside toured are terrific. You will be amazed by how fantastic the views are here.
Aside from the astonishing views, you will also get to see some of the local flora and fauna. Our well-behaved horses know the route, so you can relax and take it all in.
Get a Feeling of the Country Life at Equus Monteverde
Equus Monteverde is a family-run farm. You will get an authentic farm experience with us. The Sugarcane Tour is inside a small factory that produces sugarcane juice from sugarcane plants. Sugarcane juice converts into raw sugarcane candy. Raw sugarcane candy then becomes raw sugar and then white or regular sugar.
During the sugarcane tour, you will learn the initial phases of this process, where sugarcane plants produce juice, which becomes a typical Costa Rican candy called “Sobado.” You will have the opportunity to make and try your own Sobado.
At Monteverde Equus, you will first go on a beautiful horseback ride through pastures, cattle, mountains, and coffee plantations. Then, you will visit the farm’s sugar cane mill, where the tour guide will explain the sugar production process in a rustic, traditional, and homely way. You will produce and try organic sugarcane juice and the typical Costa Rican sugar candy, “Sobado.” And then, you will finish the tour with a typical snack from the Equus farm.
