Overall, this tour was much more scenic and challenging than the Monteverde Cloud Forest! You see plenty of waterfalls, and lunch was delicious! However, I would say it is mostly trekking, with lots of uphills/steps, so you MUST wear good boots/shoes that will provide good traction since the paths and steps are very slippery and always wet. Not recommended for beginners or those who aren't in the best of shape. Definitely wear or bring a rain jacket. Also, if you are afraid of heights, a warning that there are several very narrow footbridges crossing over water and fairly high up, often with only one rope to the side to hold on to as you pass. The horseback riding was just the ride back up to the ranch where you started, and a little bit of trail.
