Had a wonderful tour with Dopper Huckel. Had an open aired jeep pick us up at our our condo in Manual Antonio area and then we enjoyed our ride up the mountain to a secluded area in the jungle. From there we hiked to a gentle swimming hole that was fed by two waterfalls. The tour was called the Private Jungle Waterfall Buggy Tour. We had a wonderful Costa Rica lunch in a quiet remote restaurant, Koky’s La Cazuela, that we would have never found on our own. The food was amazing. Had a wonderful day.

The five if us spent the day buggying around the rain forest. Our guide, Dopper, was so knowledgeable about the area, the plants, the history, the wildlife that we did catch a glimpse of. It was just the right amount of riding in the jeep, walking, exploring and jumping in the natural water pond. And the lunch at Kokey's was delicious. It was a typical hot and humid day, but most enjoyable. Highly recommended!!

The Vacation Buggy Waterfall Tour was perfect for our large family! We were 16 people ages 3 to 70. The Buggy tour was a great day and something we all enjoyed together. The Jeeps were awesome and they picked us up right at our Villa. Luis and Rigo were outstanding, knowledgeable and friendly guides on our adventure. They knew how to keep both the kids and the adults entertained. The waterfalls, suspension bridge, and lunch at Koky’s were absolutely highlights of our week in Manuel Antonio! Just FYI, if you are a group larger than 14, the additional members of the group will be riding on laps or in a third vehicle (not one of the buddies.) This worked fine for our group (because we had a few young kids) but I think it’s helpful to know in advance.

Hi LPL4,7 Thank you for your generous 5 star review and we are thrilled that your large group had such a great time on our education and fun excursion. As you stated, our custom Jeep limousines can accommodate up to 7 guests per vehicle so we can take up to 14 in the jeeps since we only have two of them but if the group is larger, we take a 4x4 SUV. What most groups do is switch around so everyone gets a chance to ride in the cool jeeps. We are hopeful to customize a 3rd jeep and import it into Costa Rica in the future. Thank you for touring with us, Vacation Buggy

Family of 9, including preteens and teens, enjoyed every moment of this amazing excursion! The waterfalls, suspension bridge, and swim holes were enough of an adventure, however, add our two guides, Luis and Rico, and they made this adventure 100 times more fun!!! As we headed to our second waterfall, both Luis and Rico discussed and decided to find us a more “private” waterfall experience! SO.... as they handmade a path and steps, we headed to our very own private waterfall and hole off the beaten track. INCREDIBLE!!!!!! Did I mention we ate termites as well??!!!! Tasty! Don’t miss out on this excursion!!
