The Costa Rica Cabalgata

//The Costa Rica Cabalgata

Deep in rural Costa Rica, there is a monthly trail ride known as the Cabalgata. During this event, hundreds of people meet in the morning, drink beer and eat while showing off their riding gear. Then, they ride for an hour into the mountains, stop and eat and drink more. A bit more riding, followed by another stop, more eating and drinking…you get the idea.

It’s an all-day party on horseback.

I didn’t ride any horses. I opted to tak some amazing photos of this slice of Tico life that most Gringos don’t normally get to see.
