Let Don Gilberto and his family show you the real Costa Rica – on horseback! Once they pick you up the adventure in history and nature begins, starting with the Quepos Indians and leading you through the changes of Manuel Antonio until today. Enjoy learning about Costa Rica’s exotic plants and rare wildlife as you ride through the tropical jungle and private ecological reserve at Tocori, just minutes away from Manuel Antonio.
After a relaxing one hour ride on horseback through the tropical rain forest – with the pace determined by your comfort level and riding ability – leave your horses on the trail as Don Gilberto or his daughter Dyala guide you through the exotic plant and animal life on a nature walk. They will let you taste, smell, touch and observe the real Costa Rican jungle first-hand. After indulging your mind and spirit with expert knowledge, take a refreshing dip in pristine natural mountain waters while being splashed on by a stunning waterfall at Tocori. And don’t forget to enjoy an unforgettable taste of local fresh fruits and a homemade special tropical drinks made exclusively by Doña Eli, Don Gilberto´s wife, all while you relax and cool off next to the waterfalls. After being refreshed, you are ready for a ride through meandering Tocori streams to the private ranch where Doña Eli will be your hostess as she shares with you a homemade Costa Rican “casado” – a typical Costa Rican dish or terrific BBQ. Enjoy more of the tastes and flavors of Costa Rica as you sample delicious delicacies of the tropical rain forest and try our fresh, local Costa Rican products. As Don Gilberto would say, “Come and taste the flavors of our country.”
Before returning to Manuel Antonio, enjoy one ultimate experience at the rancho. Let Don Gilberto or Dayla show you their private herb and plant garden as they help educate locals and visitors alike on how to preserve the indigenous plant and herb varieties of their beautiful home country. While you are there, ask how you can help preserve the tropical rain forest and educate others about the true beauty and biodiversity of Costa Rica. After Don Gilberto and his family have hosted you at their ranch, you will have grown in your experience and knowledge of our beautiful and unforgettable tropical country, Costa Rica. But as Don Gilberto always says, “When you come back, you will have a friend.”
We recommend wearing comfortable clothes and possibly long pants, bathing suit, bug repellant, sun block lotion, camera, hat, towel, and maybe an extra change of clothes to wear after swimming and riding in the Tocori river and waterfalls.
