We take travelers on adventures in TOMCARS (an amazing vehicle that is capable of going anywhere and back). Forget 4-wheelers, dirt bikes, dune buggies, or any of those types of off-road vehicles. The TOMCAR blows them all away. No matter how difficult the terrain, this vehicle handles it with comfort and ease leaving you feeling safe and secure while you drive through the most amazing and beautiful hidden natural treasures of The Jaco Costa Rica area. Anyone from your 6 year old to your great grandma will enjoy the ride. We can customize the adventure just for you. From surf to nature, sunrise to sunset, we will take you through the heavy jungle, the most amazing rivers, streams, mountains and waterfalls you can ever imagine.

Had an unreal day driving one of the most fun vehicles ever built! Brett, Stephanie, and Adrianna have an amazing company that will not disappoint. Back roads, mountain roads, and trails cut right out of the jungle bring you to a series of waterfalls to swim and jump in. Super knowledgeable and wicked fun! Thanks again guys for an awesome...

The wife and kids had a great day touring the rainforest with Howling Monkey Adventures. Great value, informative and most of all a great way to see Costa Rica. Would suggest this adventure to anyone who wants to experience the scenery, cliffs and rivers.

We did Howling Monkey tours two years ago and as I go through old emails I found this link. My three children (12,10,8) and I had a great time on the tour and our guides were very friendly and helpful. They took us through fields, rivers, and a swimming hole with waterfalls and rocks to jump off. At one point... More

Sorry to have to write this because the owner was really nice. We drove 2.5 hours to do this tour based on the awesome reviews. They advised we were doing the waterfall tour with tons of off roading. When we arrived we were told it was too dry. We agreed to go on the beach tour. We drove on a... More

Very cool Israeli military land rovers take you through river beds s and over hills and to a waterfall where you get to jump off a cliff and go swimming. Be careful at the waterfall if you are near the rocks that have algae they are slippery and my son fell. Just use your head- during the dry season it... More
