“A tour like no other!!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I made my booking along with 3 friends for a 4 hour quad tour at the Samara Info Center in Samara. Chris and Brenda, owners of the info center, were very knowledgeable of the tours offered by ATV Trail Boss Tours and made all of the arrangements. On the day of the tour, we were picked up in Samara and driven by a tour representative (Carl) to the location where the tour started. We met Don Sherman and were given an informative briefing before the tour started. The tour was a full 4 hours during which we saw a 50 foot waterfall with Blue Morpho Butterfies floating by. We also crossed over a mountain range on a dirt road (most of the roads are dirt) where we could see for miles in all directions (vistas of other mountain ranges and the Pacific Ocean). We also crossed a river bed where we saw more butterflies and troops of Howler Monkeys in the trees. The tour included visits to several secluded, beautiful beaches. There were lots of stops for picture taking.

Don and Carl are experienced quaders and have significant knowledge of the areas that are included on the tour. The quads are new and they provide all the required safety equipment. It was a fabulous adventure where we saw scenic views, landscape and animals that we would have not seen on any other type of tour. It is a must adventure for everyone who visits Playa Samara Beach, Costa Rica.

“Best Way to See Costa Rica!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Don at Trail Boss can take you places you will never see otherwise. He has nice new machines and intricate knowledge of the back roads and mountain trails in Costa Rica. I have done numerous tours with Don and he is a fun guy to spend the day with. It is nice to not have to worry about getting lost, reading maps, and searching for gas stations. Touring with "Don Juan" is trouble and worry free. You will see remote beaches, remote towns and great restaurants. You will cross rivers without bridges, you will see monkeys, you will see great ocean and mountain views. You will see surfers, crazy old ex-pats, and friendly locals. You may even have to dodge the odd lost horse. If you visit Costa Rica a Trail Boss tour is an absolute must ! Here is a cell phone video I took of part of the trip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc5h1rt4qi0

“Amazing tour and a great ride!!!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had a blast on this ride. Saw some great views, splashed through rivers, and watched a bunch of monkeys hanging out in trees. I highly recommend the eight hour tour. It sounds long but feels like only a few hours. This is definitely more of a leisure ride, but if you are looking for something more adventurous let them know and they will be able to accommodate for that as well.

What a fun day!! I'm glad you got to see the howler monkeys close up. I know that was on your list of things that you hoped would happen before you returned to the states. Thanks for your comments and especially for having Trail Boss ATV Tours be a part of the last day of your honeymoon here in Samara, CR.

“A fantastic day”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

A fantastic day with Don, the Trail Boss, touring the beaches and countryside near Samara Costa Rica. Trail Boss overs a variety of tours, but we chose a combination of beach and back country roads. Beautiful scenery and a great time.
