WATCH OUT! My friends and I did the ATV tour and for the most part the group had a decent time but when it comes to money watch out for this company. I read other reviews and I agree with what others said. Here are a few tips if you select this company. 1. Before going out you will have to do a mini lesson/test. Their assessment of each rider seems erroneous (I passed the test and got into an ATV accident...my 2 friends didn't but rode just fine). Do NOT give them any money until after the test and you know how much you will be paying. 2. Get a quick 360 video of the vehicle you use before going out. I got into an ATV accident while on my tour. I was pretty banged up and my clothes were even torn. My helmet flew off my head even though their staff secured it. When I returned, the manager did not ask me if I was okay one time. The first thing he said to me before even assessing the ATV for damages was that he will have to charge $350. He then walked around the ATV and pointed out random scratches that were not even on the side of the ATV that flipped over. He tried to force my fiancé and I to go get cash to pay the $350. We refused. He said he would charge my card and suddenly the total became $420 due to sales tax and bank fees according to him. I've never heard of sales tax on a damage fee. I didn't agree to the charge but he charged it anyway. He also sent out a group immediately after us on the same ATV I was on before inspecting it further. 3. If you feel at all uncomfortable, DON"T RIDE them no matter what they say. You're safety is top priority...they don't care about your safety. They forced me to ride the ATV to the beach and back despite being in physical pain and stating that I didn't feel comfortable. 4. If you have multiple cards do not use your primary credit card for the deposit. I regret giving the manager one of my primary credit cards. He took photos of it which made me very uncomfortable because they are sketchy. When I got home I cancelled the card. 5. Stand your ground! Being in a foreign country and having issues with merchants can be scary and frustrating. Stand your ground on what you know is right. Keep your receipts. We had stores in Costa Rica charge us crazy different amounts for the same thing. So protect yourself and don't let this company push you around. 6. Be prepared to pay for your drinks at the beach! On the ATV tour you will ride to a beach bar where they will serve you drinks. You have to pay for them. We were a bit surprised since they didn't disclose that before asking us what we wanted in a way that made us feel like it was free. It wasn't a big deal but some of us didn't bring any extra cash since we were riding ATVs. The manager is awful and money hungry. Gabby the tour guide was great! She was very sweet and attentive but she is a fireracker lol! Overall, if you do this tour you will take some street and dirt roads to a beach. It's not super adventurous but it can be a good time. Based on my ATV experience I would never use this company again and I definitely wouldn't use them for any other tours they offer (although they probably partner with different companies). I would just work with those companies directly. No Limit Adventures is AMAZING with excellent service. We used them for our Arenal Volcano Tour and had the best time.

We rented a golf Cart from Action Tours - $60 US a day for 2 people. Great service, very friendly staff and the cart held it's charge for the 5 days we had it. Perfect way to get around Tamarindo and up the hill to the Hotel we stayed in. Would recommend this company to anyone going down.

Great experience!! The guides were wonderful and the destination beach is absolutely gorgeous. Even during the dry season without the “jungle” experience, it was a great excursion.
