My family (myself, husband, and two kids 12 and 15 years old) booked the four hour Buggy Tour with Henry as our guide. We had a great deal of fun plowing through the water along the ATV paths in the fields and hills surrounding Jaco. The highlight, however, was when Henry gave everyone (including my kids) a turn driving his ATV on the beach. We were off the road and the beach was empty, so I felt it was safe for my kids to try -- and they LOVED IT. Another highlight was when Henry got behind the wheel of the buggy and we drove up a shallow river. This made the trip so much more fun than just riding around in the buggy (driving is much more fun than being a passenger). Once my kids are old enough and have their driver's license, we'll return to rent the ATVs.

If you are staying in or near Jaco, this is a do not miss! We rode through streams, up dusty trails (buy the $5 bandana), and our wonderful guide Alberto,stopped at the most scenic areas where we could take photons of the breathtaking mountains, the ocean beyond the mountains, clear water pools, etc. We stopped at a small restaurant on the way back to Jaco where they serve lunch or snacks and have a restroom (important when you are on a 4 hour tour!). We also stopped to watch at a paragliding launch area where several paragliders were already in the air or about to launch. In all, a great way to spend a morning or an afternoon

Our family did an ATV/Buggy trip with Henry our guide today and it was worth every $ we spent. The vehicles were sturdy and felt safe for our two children ages 6 and 8 years, and Henry was courteous and knowledgeable! He was easy going with our children and an instant hit with our six year-old son. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for this kind of adventure! We certainly made some memories today!

We did the full day tour and it was petty disappointing. We started out driving for quite awhile on regular roads, which we then turned off onto a dried up riverbed. Most of the ride was on roads or the dried up riverbed. We did go through a few areas of the creek that were deep and thank God we did because it was hot and there was zero water on the trip. It's advertised that water is included and there was none. We had my 76 year old mom with us and it was almost 90 degrees and little shade. Thankfully some of us brought water bottles. The beaches we went to had filthy brown water so we weren't able to get in. Our guide seemed more interested in being on his cell phone than showing us his country. We drove under 20+ Macaw parrots and rather than stopping to let us watch them, he kept driving! We did not get to try local moonshine as someone mentions, nor did we see any chocolate, we didn't stop at the waterfall and our guide told us it was a 15 minute hike to the waterfall and that it wasn't that good. The original place we were supposed to have lunch, we did not go and our guide said it was closed and the food was bad anyway. So we went to a different place that was decent. All in all-I would not waste your time or money on this tour.

Hey there, The full-day tour is quite the adventure. Six hours of adventuring into our rainforest and/or the beach. Right now it is the hottest time of the year, and the driest. Some parts of the riverbed will be a bit dry, but not completely. In regards to the local moonshine, it is hit-or-miss; it is not promised.... it is if the vendor is around. Same with chocolate or even sugarcane- it is hit or missed, but never promised. The trail to the waterfall is 15 to 30 minutes down, and longer up. Since your mother was with you, the guide is all about safety first and had decided your mother would not be able to endure the walk. He then decided to take your group to the beach. Our beaches, in the recent weeks, have been experiencing red-tide, which produces a red/brown hue. It fluctuates with the current where it will hit the beaches on our coastline. On the weekdays, restaurants in the hills will close depending on how busy the town is. You went with one of our most enthusiastic guides. Hopefully, you will be able to enjoy, in the future, every aspect of our beautiful country. Pura Vida

We visited AXR/ATV again for mayber the 6 or 7th time everytime we have an awesome experience.
The machines are always in excellent shape and a blast to drive. We ALWAYS ask for KINE to be our guide and never disappoints.
The scenery is magnificient the empanades on top of the mountain are fantastic. This a MUST do when in Costa Rica

Enrique was our guide for our 4 hour adventure. We stopped at the river pools , cruised through the jungles and stopped at a jungle restaurant for the most amazing Pina Coladas and delicious authentic Costa Rican cuisine. Highly recommended adventure

Wow. What an experience. It’s hard to put the experience into words, but I’ll try. The machine was in great condition and more than capable for the trails we rode on. Gabriel led me and my boyfriend on an amazing adventure. We loved how he catered our trip to our skill level. I would recommend this trip to newbies or people with their own sxs’s. From the natural pool, to the mountain top restaurant, it was everything we could have ever asked for.

Henry was an amazing tour guide. He was very helpful and willing to take pictures. Actually, he asked for our cameras, we did not need to ask! He knew all the spots to stop! I highly recommend him to be tour guide on the ATV adventure.

With any tour, the tour guide sets the scene. We couldn’t be more happy with spending the day with Kine (Kenny). He took excellent care of our group of 8 friends visiting from Texas. He was knowledgeable, friendly, fun, super chill, as well as safe. He treated us like family and each spot along the tour was awesome. He’s a great photographer as well. Can’t wait to visit again!
