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 is a great tour. I was very concerned because my Dad is 92 years old and my Dad's wife wanted to drive the ATV. Oh no!!

My husband and I are not big on excursions but we took our 7 yo son out for something we thought he would like. This ended up being the highlight of our trip. So much fun to see everything around Jaco--mountains, beach, waterfalls, macaws!! I highly recommend this tour--we had Luis and he was great as our guide.

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. Luis was such a great guide, He was extremely helpful showed us all the cool spots in Jaco and was very good at making sure we were always safe.... More

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
