We did the 4 hour horseback ride and waterfall hike.
It was amazing! Even got a few smiles out of our teenage son. Yes, it was that good. Very calm and well trained horses took us through a little canyon and across streams to the trailhead. Hiked/semi-rock climbed up alongside a river, enjoying the waterfall pools along the way. Our guides name was Jorge Alberto, who made us feel like we were in good hands, despite the inherent dangers around the slippery rocks and heights. One should be in good health to do this tour, but nothing a nimble 10 year old can't handle. (There were ropes to help pull yourself up the precarious areas of the path). Nothing like jumping into a natural waterfall pool in the warmth of the Costa Rica sun. Along with the included delicious lunch at the local soda (restaurant), this tour couldn't be beat.

My friend and I rented two Honda 500 sport bikes for 24 hours. We didn’t use the guide option. We roamed all over central Costa Rica. These bikes are a lot of fun and can go pretty much anywhere. Highly recommend having a GPS if you plan on going off the main highways. Check in and check out were very smooth. The customer service was excellent. Would definitely use this company again

Tour was great- beautiful route and well treasured horses, but no helmets were provided even for children (so security was my concern), guides did not speak any English. Also I booked online and paid reservation fee 125$ and reservation email said bring passports and credit card. After finishing tour they tell me they only accept cash. 30 min of stress with language barrier (my Spanish is A1). Finally English speaking driver got in touch with booking company, another 20 min on the phone, to pay via PayPal. So full experience were spoiled by booking company incompetence

A friend and I rented two Honda Navi's for a month (~$900/ea). The first night one of the scooters broke down and we got stranded on a desolate highway in Costa Rica. My friend got ahold of AXR via email and was able to communicate to them that we were stranded. They then stopped responding. We were lucky to find a roadside restaurant where a tow truck driver was having a late dinner. We paid him to take us back to Jaco and we managed to find a place to stay. The next day we returned the scooters asking for a refund. They denied it. This is the 1st negative review I've ever left in my life. Stay away from this business.

Hello, What an unfortunate experience. Our vehicles that go out for rent our thoroughly examined before they leave the property. As it was night, the office is closed and there is not much we can do. In the contract that you have signed, you agree of taking full responsibility of the vehicle. If the machine is at no fault of your own, then we offer a refund. Hope you had a good rest of your trip here in Costa Rica. Pura Vida

My family and I got to experience the joy of ATV Riding with this awesome instructor (we called him "Sir" lol) and it was one the best excursions I have ever been on. Not only did we go off the main road, also drove through various fields, hills, valley, and lakes. We got to have an awesome lunch at a cafe the top of a mountain and overlook the beauty that is the Jaco region in Costa Rica. Not only was our instructor so much fun, he was also a great photographer and took some awesome shots of us. Through out the excursion he would have us park and check out some of the wildlife and foliage. At one point we even got into a waterfall and baptized ourselves! It was too much fun. I highly encourage you all to check out ATVs with this crew. They know how to party! Make sure you buy the masks to cover up your nose and mouth to protect you from the dust. Its a MUST HAVE!!!!

I visited Jaco Beach with my 2 teenagers in August. We booked ATV (2 hours), rafting (half day) and Ziplining. All were great and they even arranged transport for us. We did the ATV and ziplining as a combo, and fortunately we were dropped at our hotel in Jaco for a 90 minute break in between. Why? It did rain (light to moderate) midway in the mountain on the ways up and down, so we were soaked and dirty. But that just added to the adventure of riding ATV's up and down the mountain. The vehicles were safe and could handle the road, which was maintained pretty well but had uneven areas with puddled of unknown depth. We could drive at our own comfortable speed, so as the mom, of course, I let my 17 year old son go in front of me. My daughter hasn't ridden before, and my only previous experience was on a sand dune. We could handle it, though. I'd recommend AXR for their ATV's and for them booking other excursions. They even arranged airport transfer to SJO for me, which really made managing the vacation easier.

Any tourists coming to Jaco be warned this business is run by criminals and they have zero professionalism. Banking on convenience and offering garbage equipment. They have no interest in doing the honest thing and the owner is an absolute psychopath.

Dishonest and dangerous business practices and there’s no regulation. They do not maintain any of their vehicles and base their profits off of a form of robbery, knowing that tourists cannot stay long enough to prosecute them.

We really appreciate your review. Between the both of us, we know the situation and what occurred. Actually we maintain our vehicles to a very high level as you can see by looking at any of our machines. Our banana bikes is a side service we offer. Being Beach side you have to be aware that anything and everything gets worn apart and rusted, hence why we take good care of our units and change annually. We offered our USED banana bike to you for the selling price of $80. You asked for discount and insisted on your discount. We agreed to drop the bikes to $60 each. You tested the bike and approved. You tried to pay us at an exchange rate that wasn’t to date and owed money to the shop for more than 4 days which the owner allowed you too do so, after finally coming to pay days after you never mentioned nothing. A few days later mentioning that the bikes are garbage and you want a full refund. The owner offered you to change it too a rental at a cheaper price then you paid and return the bikes which you refused. Honestly we try to work with people you are interested in being honest, and if your looking to take advantage of us, sorry but your not the first and I doubt the last. But next time take your business else where. Hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation, pura vida. Saludos

We went on a 3hr ATV tour with Pachi. He by far the best guide you could ever find. He took the time to understand what we wanted out of our tour and delivered 1000%. We enjoyed the tour and Pachi's knowledge of the area so much we went for a second half day tour with him. Amazingly the second tour was even better. From mountains to waterfalls and river beds and all the local knowledge you could want. If your in the area give AXR a call and setup a tour of your choice with Pachi, you won't regret it believe me.

Was so fortunate to have had a private tour with Pachi. He took us thru areas that no other guides take their guests. Pachi is so intouch with nature & his country...teaching us & showing us about the raw beauty of Costa Rica. Would recommend him & AXR with brightest of colors. We did the side by side ATV tour & was perfect for all ages

Absolutely wonderful experience. It had everything you could ask for. I loved the different environments to ride through: city, pastures, forest, and beach! The guide was extremely friendly and patient. Recommend for all!
