Horseback riding is truly one of the best ways to experience Monteverde’s astounding wilderness, as you can cover several miles in a few hours.
This allows for more wildlife to be seen, more pictures to be taken, and more vistas to be enjoyed. Monteverde itself is considered a prime location for horseback riding – it is green all year long, has an average daily temperature of 18° C (64° F), and offers endless mountain views. In truth, its very name is reflective of this fact. In Spanish, “monte” means mountain and “verde” means green. Thus, Monteverde means green-mountain.
