San Carlos, Costa Rica – Exploring on Horseback

San Carlos, Costa Rica is an area made famous by Arenal Volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. We went horseback riding to Arenal, but also delved further into the bucolic plains of San Carlos. This is a beautiful area to explore with the locals on horseback. The land is diverse, with large open tracts, great for cantering and mountains, where you can ride up high to take in views of the surrouding area and Arenal. Check out an Equitrekking video below from horse riding in Costa Rica and learn about great Costa Rica riding vacations at Also, search for great dude ranches, guest ranches, cattle drives and riding holidays in the Equitrekking Vacation Guide.
