Bijagual Waterfall Horseback Riding
Duration: Half Day
Make the most of your holiday in Costa Rica and book a unique tour that allows you to venture off the beaten track. Take an exciting horseback riding excursion into the jungle to the spectacular Bijagual waterfalls, one of the highest waterfalls in Costa Rica. Cascading 600ft high from cliffs that stand deep in the lush jungle, the legendary Bijagual waterfalls is a mystical place just waiting to be explored by nature lovers and those looking for a challenge – whether it’s by horseback or walking.
Travel along the road to Bijagual and take in the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. See quaint local fishing villages as you hike through the small mountain range between Carara National Park and the protected zone of Turrubares, in the province of San José. This status protects areas of tropical forest on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Along the way, marvel at the dramatic changes in vegetation.
After this scenic drive, you will continue on horseback along the jungle trail, which will lead you to the plunging waterfalls of Bijagual. The ride is short, but challenging, and well worth it once you stop within a few hundred yards of the waterfalls and hear the roaring sounds of the plummeting water as it hits the naturally formed pools below.
Nature lovers can enjoy expert advice from naturalist guides as they observe a multitude of wildlife, including Scarlet Macaws and toucans, monkeys, colourful frogs and a diverse range of plant species. Relax and soak up this area of natural beauty, whilst swimming in the invigorating, spring-fed pools at the base of the waterfalls. An experience not to be missed! Indulge in free time to explore this mystical area and its abundant wildlife – an ideal chance to get your camera out and capture the memories of your holiday in Costa Rica. This horse riding adventure tour reveals nature at its best. Just remember to bring the insect repellent!
