Martin Horse Tour Monteverde

The Martin Horse Tour, named after our founder “Don Martin,” who passed away in 2020, is a 2-hour horseback riding tour in Monteverde, Costa Rica, recommended for inexperienced horseback riders and families with young kids.

We have the most docile and calm horses in Monteverde, and our farm’s landscape is perfect for a smooth ride, making it an excellent option for folks with little to no horseback riding experience. 

At Martin Horse Tour, we will ride through a trail through open areas used for pasture and a small forested area, a beautiful path to connect with nature in an easy-going ride to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Once we reach the summit of our farm’s land, we will take a moment to enjoy the magnificent view overlooking the entire Monteverde area down to the sea overlooking the Gulf of Nicoya, a beautiful stop before we make our way back down to where the tour started.

For your information, in the past, the Martin Horse Tour was also known as Martin Horses and Martin Tours, and some fellow community members still refer to us using those terms.

The Horse Trek Horseback Riding Tour is $30 for residents (all ages) and kids below twelve years old and $60 for adults (12 and up).

Beautiful Horse Tour! Martin Horse Tour

The Martin Horses Tour was a wonderful experience. The scenery was incredible, and we even had a stop mid-ride to let the horses rest; this was a welcome chance to stretch our legs and enjoy the view.
