By opening the portal of the finca we enter a lush jungle where coatis, howler monkeys, birds, and butterflies live in harmony. We head to the Barco Quebrado beach: typical of the region, off the beaten track. The temptation of a frantic gallop will be great! Picnic on the beach! Swimming or nap in a hammock. Then you will discover one of the most beautiful beach on the coast: Playa Barigona. White sand, coconut tree, desert: this is a dream come true!
DAY 3 PLAYA SAMARA – PLAYA BUENAVISTA – 5H RIDE
The magnificent forests of Guanacaste accompany us to the sumptuous playa Buenavista: preserved from all infrastructures, frequented only by turtles who come to lay their eggs and some ticos on Sunday who come to play football when the tide is low. You will gain height to admire a unique view of the bay of Samara opening on the Pacific Ocean. Lunch break at the restaurant this time on the shaded terrace, local flavor. Back through fields and colorful meadows with cows, birds and other wild animals in a serene atmosphere. The price includes equestrian activities during the 3 days and lunches.
