Probably our favorite activity while in Costa Rica. Go Buggies are super fun to drive and so much better than ATVs. We took the 4 hour tour that ultimately leads to a beautiful secluded waterfall with crystal clear cool water - perfect for a quick swim after a dusty ride. Along the way enjoying awesome views of rainforests, the ocean, animals and rural Tico life. Gene (tour operator) had his girlfriend and father along on our trip as we were the only guests (low season). They were all really nice and made us feel like family. I highly recommend this tour!

We spent 4 hours with Gene and Nick taking our dune buggy's to places we never thought we would go. We went through streams, up rugged trails, across scrub and even went to a terrific waterfall. But plan on getting really dirty! The shear nature of the tour dictates it. These buggy's are so much fun to drive and the Gene and Nick are just so down to earth loving what they do you can't help but have a blast! If you are going to the Guanacaste area of Costa Rica in or about the Potrero Beach area, just don't miss one of these tours. They have 2, 3 and 4 hour tours but I think you would be remiss if you didn't take the 4 hour tour. To Gene and Nick from Lorenzo, Barb, Claudia and Ron............thanks!!

This was our 2nd trip to Costa Rica. We have done the Buena Vista zipline, waterslide, horse backride and mud bath as well as 2x on ATV.
Go Buggy is a MUST! Totally different adventure. We chose the 4 hour tour that took us to the waterfall. Tons of fun getting there through streams and river beds. Yes you get dirty and wet which is half the fun. The waterfall is a great break and really comes in handy to wash off the dust. Other than Hawaii, it is hard to imagine anywhere else you can find such an experience.
Gene and the guys were fantastic. Very helpful in demonstrating how to operate the vehicles and patient with those that weren't as used to driving something like a buggy. If you want an experience that combines great scenery, off the beaten path exploring and the exhilaration of feeling like a navy seal, this is it!

This was by far the best part of our trip while we were in Costa Rica. We got to see it all on this trip, especially the breathtaking landscapes. Our guides, Gene and Eddie were very knowledgeable and fun to be around, they are what made the adventure much more exciting. I felt safe during the whole trip and it was very much worth it!!!

These are a really great group on guys and they know their way around. They brought us through small villages, rain forest, beaches and lots more. One part of the tour we went through a juggle area with vines, left like I was in an Indiana movie. It was a lot safer then riding a 4x4 but just as exciting.

The guides was american and canadian and has opened this place to live the life. Real layed back. They brought us beers and even gave us a ride back to the hotel after the tour.
