The Monteverde Equus Farm has a fantastic location, overlooking three volcanoes (Miravalles, Tenorio, and Rincón de la Vieja) as well as the Gulf of Nicoya, and it offers one of the most fabulous experiences in the area. The Monteverde Equus tour is a 2-hour horseback ride combined with a 30-minute farm tour. 

At Monteverde Equus, you will first go on a beautiful horseback ride through pastures, cattle, mountains, and coffee plantations. You will see local flora and fauna, and you will build an intimate relationship with your horse and your tour guide. 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. 


The Monteverde Equus tour is $30 for residents (all ages), $25 for foreign kids (5-9 years old), and $40 for foreign adults (10 and up). These rates include transportation both ways, but they do not include taxes. All in all, this is considered by many a magical experience that is well underpriced for what you get. 

How to Get There

The Monteverde Equus tour takes place at the Monteverde Equus Farm. Even though the tour includes transportation, the recommendation is to drive to the park directly whenever possible. Getting there with your vehicle can save you up to 90 minutes since the shuttles have to stop many times at multiple locations to pick up or drop off travelers.

Additional Information

The Monteverde Equus tour is suitable for ages 5+ except for people with disabilities, extreme weight excess, or pregnancy.


Unexpectedly Magical Monteverde Equus Tour

The Monteverde Equus Tour was the most unexpectedly fantastic experience of our entire two-week honeymoon! We thought it was just a cute way to watch a sunset, but it ended up being a great horseback ride through some of the most beautiful areas in the country. It was so green that it felt Photoshopped. I cannot recommend this enough.

Best Horseback Ride Monteverde Equus Tour

Pablo and his father Rafael did a great job showing us around their tour and stable. The horse tour was terrific. My friends and I enjoyed going through beautiful scenery and learned how to ride a horse well. We went on the 3 pm tour, and it was great. The time was well worth it and ended with some sugar cane juice, snacks, and sweets.

Horseback Riding Tour Monteverde Equus Tour

We booked the Monteverde Equus tour on the Equus farm, and we had the loveliest time! The guides were lovely and gave us a great tour through the mountains. The horses were adorable and very obedient. In the end, they showed us their sugarcane farm and how to make sugar. They even made us a nice snack. Highly recommend.
