Nice beginner ATV tour

Our ATV tour was with La Pradera. All guides were professional and took safety serious. This is a good tour for beginners. The problem with this tour is if you're behind someone... read more

We received the best treatment from the guides there. Caleb took us on such a fun private tour. Through the jungle, a river and through muddy trails.

My husband and I do a lot of ATVing so thought this would be like many other tours where you follow the person in front of you and go slow around a track. At first it seemed like that is what would happen here also. We were taken to a field across the highway from the starting point and did... More

My friends and I went on this ATV tour at the recommendation of our Hotel, Green Lagoon Wellbeing Resort. Unfortunately we didn't check the reviews before we went. This is a very boring tour - if you're looking for any kind of excitement look elsewhere. During the safety briefing the leader mentioned that for a portion of our tour we... More

Our ATV tour was with La Pradera. All guides were professional and took safety serious. This is a good tour for beginners. The problem with this tour is if you're behind someone who is really slow and a bad driver which is what happened to us. They would stop for no reason which meant that I would have to stop... More

They have way overbooked the tour. We had over 20 ATV's going and it was horrible, people did not know how to drive and it was painfully slow boring. Complained to the guides and they could do nothing. Swimming hole in the middle was lone bright spot.

The first part was mildly entertaining, but felt kinda pointless. You go screw around in a muddy field/hill. I can do that in the United States without a guide breathing down my neck. The second part was kinda cool because you get to see some areas a bit off the beaten path. At the same time, it's pretty lame because... More

They gave me a defective ATV where the wheels and the steering wheel weren't aligned. I had to hold the steering wheel at a 45 degree angle to go straight, and nearly killed myself when the ATV crashed within the first 10 minutes of the trip. Rather than asking how I was or offering medical treatment for shock, and the... More

This was an extremely poorly planned ATV Tour. The tour consists of two parts, first is the "practice run" where you actually off-road through mud. The second part is driving through a village where there are kids and cars. During no part of the tour are you allowed to have any semblance of fun or amusement. It's an extremely expensive... More

First, the people were really nice, and seemed to care for our safety. Since we were not in the US, our expectations of safety were tempered a bit (in the US I doubt you could do half the things we did). A couple of the ATV's stalled out and took a few minutes to get everyone back rolling again. The... More

My husband and I decided last minute that we wanted to do an ATV tour. Our resort contacted ATV La Pradera and within 10 min a guide showed up to pick us up for a private tour. We had the pleasure of meeting Keilor and were excited to find out that he was our guide for the trip. He was... More
