You get to drive crazy-fun off road cars over beautiful terrain. The guys are very cool, the cars are awesome... you will look back at the pictures and smile... do it!

We did the 1/2 day tour and had a great time. You meet up at the office and the caravan through the jungle to this cool little waterfall where you can jump off the cliff into the water below. Tour guides are great and fix you up a fresh coconut and a snack. Then back into the cars for a... 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

I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had. It was safe and exciting. You have to like 4 wheel driving to enjoy this. It is a different type of experience. You also get very dusty in dry season. The staff was great!

The TOMCARS are amazing - bulletproof, hardcore ATV's. We were pretty excited, especially with reading all the previous reviews of other people's experiences. This tour is a bit pricey too ($125/pp), so we thought spending the extra money (vs. just taking a regular ATV tour) would be worth it. Our car broke down about a 1/4 way into the trip,... More

What fantastic experience. We did this with three children (including a two year old) and a pregnant mom and everyone agreed it was excellent. Riding through the jungle was so much fun, especially crossing back and forth over the rivers, and we all loved swimming at the waterfall. The guides were so pleasant, and the owners couldn't have been nicer... More

This was the highlight of my vacation. If you don't do this while visiting Nosara you are truly missing out. There is no better way to see and experience the vast terrain and culture that Costa Rica has to offer than with Howling Monkeys Adventure. From top to bottom, the owners, guides, and cars are first rate!! Do not miss... More

Let's just start out by me saying I thought this was just going to be a regular ATV type tour, how wrong I was. The Tomcars are amazing vehicles. From driving through the jungle and rainforest to diving into a waterfall to riding into a herd of 100's of cows to driving on a deserted beach. I could not have... More
