A coworker and I had a great time with Wilman riding horses, enjoying some homemade cake and coffee, and learning about the entire process of growing and processing coffee. It was an amazing experience!
Beautiful Farm, Friendly Horses, Delicious Coffee

This tour was worth every penny! It's based in a small town of approximately 1,800 residents. The horseback riding lasted between 3 and 4 hours, with stops along the way to swim in a waterfall (bring a swimsuit, we forgot!), to visit a viewpoint above the village, and to tour the coffee mill downtown. At the coffee mill, we really got to see the process up close. They process coffee beans in 3 ways there, and we were guided through the greenhouses and machineries of each. We ended the horseback ride at the house of the owners of the farm, where they gave us coffee and snacks (sandwiches and fresh fruit). Overall, the tour was an incredible way to see a beautiful Costa Rican coffee farm, and the guides shared lots of information and answered all of our questions along the way. Perhaps most importantly, the horses are clearly well cared for. My friend who went with me has horses, and she could tell that they were well trained, well groomed, and well fed. They do have personalities, though! Mine would often stop to eat, which required some control to curb. Because of that and because of the amount of time spent riding, I think people who are already comfortable on horses will enjoy this tour the most, but the guides are definitely equipped and ready to help guests of any experience level.
