We did the Zip line/horseback tour and it was well worth the money. I will talk abou the zip line in a separate review. The horses were a little more spirited than the typical tours, I was fine, but if you are truly a first time rider, let them know. The guide was excellent, the views amazing, and the waterfall...

The staff is great but it's an hour up the mountain slow and steady and at the top of the mountain you have to go down 300 stairs to the waterfall. They are NOT ordinary steps. They are tall steps and if you are not in shape it's a heart attack waiting to happen!!!! We went down about 100 steps... More

We took this with our 2 young kids mid trip. My 5 yr old rode with us and they gave my 8 yr old a smaller more docile horse. The guide, Roy, was VERY concerned with our safety and went above and beyond. At the waterfall my kids slid down the fall and it was safe, water was clear, and... More

My friends and I came here expecting a 2 and half hour horseback tour through the jungle, including a hike to a waterfall. We were very disappointed to have only been on the horses for around 30 minutes. The waterfall was pretty but absolutely not worth the money in my opinion. Wishing we would have spent the money elsewhere!

I cannot rave enough about how wonderful and SPECIAL this experience was. My 13 year old son and I stayed at the Los Suenos Marriott, which is only about 10 minutes away from the Vista office. When we arrived at the Vista office, we were quickly checked in and introduced to our tour guide, Roy. Roy then brought us over... More

Surprisingly this was pretty physically demanding. I had a great time but the 8 year old who was riding his own horse got scared because the incline and decline was pretty steep and it was muddy. Breath taking view and lighthearted, very knowledgeable tour guide. They picked us up from our hotel and provided fresh fruit and water bottles during... More

Horseback riding was fun, going up mountain was very difficult, especially never going riding before, natural pool was awesome, walking back to horse was difficult but overall experience was good

A beautiful ride into the mountains on some rocky terrain. Guided by our host, Roy, who was skilled, knowledgeable, kind, and fun. Highlight was the natural waterfall and swimming hole where we re-energized and refreshed. Good for beginners or experienced riders. Steep steps to and from the waterfall are not for the unfit.

We had a great experience. Roy was so fun and an interesting guide. The dip in the pools at the waterfall was refreshing. Roy took very good care of us and made sure we were comfortable the whole time. Thanks for a fun morning !
