After hotel pickup in La Fortuna, your two-part adventure begins with the zipline tour.
Starting from a 43-foot-high (13-meter) tower, soar across the treetops for nearly 2 miles (3 km), reaching speeds up to 35 mph (60 kph) as you move across the circuit of eight cables, which range in length from 262 to 2,460 feet (80 to 750 meters) with an average height of 125 feet (38 meters). From the 12 platforms, five of which are built in the trees, take in different views of the rainforest and other natural scenery.
Next, move from the air back to ground level with a 1-hour horseback ride. After your guide matches you with a horse suitable for your abilities, listen to some instructions and then follow your guide along trails through farmlands and the rainforest. Admire the lush environment, spotting varying vegetation from ferns to sugarcane to giant trees known as higueron. When you reach Silencio Observation Point, enjoy a view of Arenal and its lava trails.
Horses are trained for riding, and the riding speed is kept at a pace that is suitable for the least-experienced member of your group. You also have the opportunity to join a group that better matches your riding level. (Make sure to inform your guide of your abilities.)
Your tour ends with return transport to your pickup location.
