Costa Rica is still very much an agrarian society, and the horse remains a regular form of transport throughout much of the nation. That means lots of organized horseback tours and horses for visitors to rent. Cahuita on the Caribbean coast, Monteverde, and the Lake Arenal region of the Northern Lowlands are all great bases for horseback riding, as are the many activity centers at the base of Rincón de la Vieja Volcano near Liberia in Guanacaste. Based in La Fortuna, near Lake Arenal, Desafío Adventures leads horseback trips that take you all the way to Monteverde—bypassing the terrible roads along the way. Hacienda Guachipelín, based near Rincón de la Vieja National Park, has a stable of about 50 horses and organizes scenic tours through the dry forest at the base of the volcano.—Christopher P. Baker
