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.

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

Brett (owner) is a really good guy and super friendly. I really liked the 4 wheelers we were in because they have a windshield. Although its partially a dustry ride, having a windshield was great! They provided bandana to cover your mouth, goggles and an ice chest of water. Luis was the guide we had and he was interesting, fun... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous sunset tour yesterday to a high point overlooking Jaco. We chose this Tomcar sunset tour as it was a shorter, and we were assured the comfort of the ride even on rough terrain would be gentle on my husband's back. It was!
