Along the beaches between Playa Cocles,
where Cariblue is located, and Manzanillo, there
is a lovely horseback
riding and hiking trail. Weaving
between the jungle and the beach, this ride will
give you spectacular views of the lovely tropical
beaches, the deep blue Caribbean Sea, and the lush
coastal jungle. Along the way, there are lots of
great swimming spots, several small streams, secluded
beaches and small coastal communities.
Beyond Manzanillo, our experienced
guides can lead you on horseback riding tours of
the Gandoca-Manzanillo wildlife preserve. Go beyond
the road on horseback, by far the most comfortable
and easiest way to explore the jungle. This wonderful
pristine wilderness area is home to lots of exotic
wildlife, including the howler monkeys, sloths,
anteaters, frogs, and other amazing jungle creatures.
You will pass by several small farms and Punta Mona
Center for Sustainable Living and Education. Beyond
Punta Mona, there is a long stretch of isolated
beach where the great sea turtles come to lay their
eggs. During the turtle season, you can even take
turtle watching tours to see this spectacular event.
In the other direction from Cariblue,
along the short stretch of coast between Playa Cocles
and Puerto Viejo, there is a very nice horseback
riding and hiking trail which leads along the beach
and through groves of coco palms. Horseback riding
is a great way to explore the beaches near Puerto
Viejo and beyond.
