We take travelers on adventures in TOMCARS (an amazing vehicle that is capable of going anywhere and back). Forget 4-wheelers, dirt bikes, dune buggies, or any of those types of off-road vehicles. The TOMCAR blows them all away. No matter how difficult the terrain, this vehicle handles it with comfort and ease leaving you feeling safe and secure while you drive through the most amazing and beautiful hidden natural treasures of The Jaco Costa Rica area. Anyone from your 6 year old to your great grandma will enjoy the ride. We can customize the adventure just for you. From surf to nature, sunrise to sunset, we will take you through the heavy jungle, the most amazing rivers, streams, mountains and waterfalls you can ever imagine.

The 4-5hour buggy experience was mind blowing. The cars are absolute mean machines. The tour involved driving through multiple terrains, including extreme wet muddy off-road mountain tracks and a river crossing.

This tour was by far the greatest thing I have done in Costa Rica yet! I have lived here for 10 months now traveling all around. Luis, our guide, was hands down incredible. I can't say enough about this company. If you do not try it, you are sadly missing out on an incredible, thrill seeking, adventure! My only regret........ More

This tour was one of the best tours I have been on... Cars were great to drive, great views on the route you take to the dozen or more waterfalls that you visit. The hike to waterfalls is amazing(not to long), followed by swims in the pools and even being able to jump into the deepest pool. As my family... More

We had the opportunity to take the long tour to the waterfall, and stopping at many interesting places including great view points. The cars are great to drive and they feel tough and although they seem to be able to go over any terrain, they are comfortable to ride. Be prepared to get really dusty and make sure to pack... More
