Horseback Riding

Paradise Riding. At this German-run stable, the 16 horses are in tip-top shape, as is the impressive tack room, with top-quality saddles lined up in a neat row. There are two- or three-hour trail rides ($55–$59, minimum of four riders), or you can set off for a whole day of riding. The moonlight rides are popular and have been the scene of a few marriage proposals. The maximum number of riders they can handle is eight. Week-long riding and lodging packages are available, too. You'll saddle up at the friendly owner's house, across from the entrance to Guacamaya Lodge. Main road to beach, Playa Junquillal. 2658–8162. www.paradiseriding.com.
