The three of us went there just a couple of days ago. It is low season in Costa Rica and it rained a lot these days. We didn't expect much from it. So we were pretty surprised - this was the best ATV ride ever! We took several rides in different countries and really loved this one. Tyler, our guide,... More

We had taken a ATV tour recently. We booked through anywherecostarica.com To start off, the guide was very rude and unhelpful. The trip has 2 parts. First they take you to a grassland right across the hotel la Pradera. You basically follow the guy in front. Most of it is a flat terrain. There are stretches were you ride on... More

Nothing good. They expected everybody to stay in a single line. If you want to have fun choose a different ATV tour. If you are told by the hotel they only book through these guys, go the extra mile to call a different ATV group.

I've taken many ATV tours in various places around the world. This was clearly one of the best mostly because there were only four in our group so the guide was able to taylor the ride to us. We were all comfortable riding ATV's so we were able to go where only experienced riders are allowed. It was a very... More

We booked the tour thinking it would be a nice and fun experience. One of the guides (I think he's the owner) drove his ATV intentionally into the area where there were a few cows we're sitting and eating just because he thought that would be entertaining and "funny" to see them running away, of course the cows got scared...

Must be 16 years old to drive by yourself. My 16 year old son drove me and my husband drove my 14 year old daughter. It was kind of scary at first since we had never driven one of these before. Our guide was really good and once we got the hang of driving the ATV, it was really fun!... More

If you just want to get off road and get dirty and have a great time while getting in some some great views of the volcano and the area, I highly recommend this tour. We were picked up at the hotel on time. They provide water, but I did bring a small backpack with to carry the camera and a... More

I absolutely hated this place! My group consisted of 8 people ranging in ages from 20-32. The 19 year old leading the group gave us a 2 1/2 minute 'lesson' in how to handle the atv's. Then they take 5 minutes to write down everyone's dinner order. Then they lead you to a mountainside and expect you to off road... More

The Hotel Magic Mountain convinced us to book with these people after arguing we wanted to do the other tour, which I will comment on in another post. Both places were close to our hotel but they convinced us to go here because "they don't work with the other company". We saw a youtube video and it looked fun, not.... More
