HORSEBACK RIDING TOURS TO THE PISCINA

We enjoy taking our guests and visitors to Bocas del Toro on 2-3 hour guided Horseback Rides along the Bluff Beach Road to the pools of Finca Floras. Your journey will take you to the secluded beautiful ocean pools. The pools are calm and perfect for swimming and snorkelling - bring your gear if you like. Pack a lunch or snack to enjoy on the beach. Or stop at one of Bluff Beach's two restaurants at the end of your ride.

Ideally, we schedule rides to depart from Bluff Beach at 9:30 am and 2:30 pm (other times can be arranged). This will keep the horses and riders out of the intense afternoon heat. The majority of the ride is shaded by trees. Tours depart from Bluff Beach Retreat, Tesoro Escondido or Playa Bluff Lodge if requested.
To reserve please call or email us the day before. We may be able to accommodate same day requests. The fee is $35 per person payable in cash prior to the ride. We recommend a tip of $5 per person to the guide.
Our horses are well groomed, trained and calm. They walk and need to be encourage to trot. Suitable for riders of all experience levels but, this is a trail ride with unpredictable encounters along the way for the horse and rider. For the safety of our horses and riders, we do not go out in heavy rain. Also, we enforce a strict weight limit of 220 lbs. For the safety of our horses, please be honest and do not book a ride if you are over the limit.
Helmets and rubber boots are available for use. We recommend wearing long pants for your comfort and bring dry clothing if you plan to swim. Riding home in a wet bathing suit is a very bad idea!

A riding waiver must be completed in order to ride. Being around horses is inherently dangerous. Even the calmest horse can be spooked. You will be trail riding through sand, water and vegetation - it is not unusual for the horses to slip or lose their footing.
