My family (party of 5) sent in a Pay Pal deposit before arriving and were met by Karl across the street fro his location promptly at our meeting time. Our guide Jodie was very knowledgeable, safe, and provided a great experience for all. He educated us on the types of plants and animals of the area in addition to knowing... More

Booked out tour through a neighbour at our villa, and paid via PayPal. About a 1/2 hr. Drive from dominicalito, Very easy to get there. Karl was great - filled us in on all the rules etc., and especially appreciated that he was sensitive to the locals. Jeudy (sorry if I spelled your name wrong) was our guide. He was... More

I paid a deposit via Paypal & booked this tour with Karl before leaving Canada. Based on other reviews, I was expecting to pay 12 - 15 US $'s for our cab ride from Dominical to Tinamastes; however, I was charged $24.00!!! I thoroughly enjoyed our outing (along with another Canadian couple) through the jungle & up the mountains. Juedy... More

We booked another tour with Diamante Verde Tours asking Karl to pick a different route than we did on our previous trip with him. Booking was easy and communication was quick and easy. Putting down a deposit with Pay Pal was easy. We met Karl and took off on our ATV tour....we crossed a river, hiked down to the water's... More

Went on the Monday before X-mas, Karl and Jody were great. Karl has a great sense of humor, and when my phone fell out in the car on the ride over, Karl was more than willing to take some pictures for me to document my tour and send them to me. Got to swim under a waterfall, and they were... More

We had a fantastic time on our 6 hour ATV ride through the jungles of Costa Rica with Juedy! It was his first solo trip with a group without Karlos. He did a great job, explaining different plants and telling us about the different customs of the people that live here. We stopped to get coffee from a local grower.... More

My husband and I took our older children and niece on this tour with Karl and Joudi on Christmas Eve - we had such a great time! Both Karl and Joudi were very knowledgable of the area, and their ATVs were very comfortable and clean. We were all impressed with Karl's friendliness as he brought chickens to everyone along our...

We had a great time with Karl! My husband and I have gone on many ATV excursions while on vacation. This was one of our favorites. It was nice to get off of the beaten path and see a part of the countryside that we would have never experienced. Wear clothes that you will not worry about getting muddy. Not... More

First off, I would like to say that Karl of Diamante Verde Tours, was incredibly accommodating, responsive, and professional in organizing our ATV experience of the Costa Rican wilderness. We were treated as if it was private, exclusive ride. Never once did this feel like a "run-of-the-mill" tour – both Karl and his protege, Jeudy (gringos say JODY) Umana Mendez,... More

This was an amazing experience with Karl!!! He is so knowledgable, friendly and experienced. This was a true Costa Rican sightseeing experience and the beauty of the country is best seen this way! Another tour with Karl is a must when I return!
