Manuel Antonio and its surrouding area offers some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches that stretch along the Pacific coast, but it can be difficult to see them all by foot. With limited transportation options in and around Manuel Antonio and Quepos, your best and most affordable way of getting around is to rent a scooter. Save your vacation time for sunning and surfing, and enjoy the freedom and flexibility to explore Manuel Antonio on your own terms. All scooters are 150cc and are able to carry 2 people. Just let us know if you will require an extra helmet and we will provide for no extra charge.

This wondrous waterfall adventure all begins 1.5 hours south of Jaco. Perfect for those seeking peace and tranquility or those looking for some cliff diving adrenaline. Our full day adventure not only includes 3 different waterfalls, with opportunities to dive off cliffs, slide down natural slides, plunge into stunning swimming holes using rope swings, but you can also enjoy a stop at a beautiful Costa Rican beach, and if the tide permits, you might even be able to explore some beach caves! Midway through the day take another great opportunity to grab some lunch, and do a little beach side shopping in the sleepy surf town of Dominical. With no other tour like it, this fun for all family adventure is sure to become a once in a lifetime experience.

I rented a scooter for the day from Roy. It was great to be able to cruise around to the various beaches in Manuel Antonio although some are tough to get to due to the steep slopes to and from.
