Owner description: Vacation Buggy provides "Only Private Excursions" for families and groups to tour our local area or an exciting adventure to a very remote area of the Rainforest...These Private Excursions are only for you, your family, or group, and we travel in our Extremely Cool, Vacation Buggy custom Jeep Limousines. We offer two very popular excursions - Our Welcoming "get to know the area" excursion, allows you to quickly get acclimated to our towns of Manuel Antonio and Quepos areas as we show you all of the great restaurants, night life, beach's, ATM"s, etc... or experience some of Costa Ricas most remote locations with our extremely popular Jungle/Waterfall excursion - which is one of the only ways to go deep into the True Rainforest. This excursion allows you to see the real side of Costa Rica as we journey through the palm plantation, quaint towns and villages on our way to the top of the Rainforest.. Get acquainted with the local area, explore the incredible jungle or request our unique "Vacation Wedding Buggy" for that special day! Vacation Buggy can accommodate up to 7 guests with one Jeep and 14 with two Jeeps, and is safe, secure and accessible to people of all ages and abilities.

If you want to see the way the locals live and see beautiful rain forest and spectacular landscape and waterfalls, I can't imagine there being a better way to do so. I won't/can't add much to all of the very positive reviews, except to say I agree with the fact they provide very comfortable transportation and very happy, knowledgeable guides. One thing I was pleasantly surprised by is the fact I may have seen two mosquitoes the entire day. We have far more mosquitoes in Texas! I would also say I was pleasantly surprised by the mild temperatures. It was absolutely a perfect temperature and we did not notice much humidity....but we are from Texas.

We just took this tour this morning and had an incredible time. Our family consists of myself, husband, and 2 1/2 year old. The tour felt like an adventure but we felt completely safe with our toddler along. She was fearless crossing the suspension bridge and swimming under the waterfall. Luis was friendly and knowledgeable during the trip...and he was great with our daughter also. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling in the Manuel Antonio area.

Although we didn't get to go in one of the buggys and instead took a 4x4, Don made a great impression. He was friendly and had many stories to tell us about the jungle. The spot where we stopped to swim was awe inspiring and gave a true sense of what it was like to be in the heart of the jungle.

To the gang from the UK, I truly enjoyed touring your family and really appreciated your understanding of our Buggy dilema. These are mechanical machines and sometimes problems occur which is why we have a luxury SUV - a nice backup! We hope that we helped make your wonderful vacation very memorable...

All the best,
Don

We just returned to the States and certainly one of the highlights of my trip to Cosat Rica was the tour with Don. We had a party of 11 and had both Don & Luis. They were very knowledgable and friendly. Loved swimming in the waterfalls! A special thanks to Luis for getting my mom across the expansion bridge. I had a great time (and delicious lunch)!

Our family of four just came back from this tour and I just had to write this review before dinner. Luis was an incredible guide; funny, laid- back, knowledgeable and just an all around personable young man. He even practiced Spanish with our 16 year old daughter, and its hard to get her to say a word lol. Don the tour operator answered all my questions quickly pre tour by email and he facilitated the whole reservation process. The buggy ride was exhilarating but safe and the waterfalls were straight out of a postcard. This has been the high light of our stay so far! If you can only do one activity in MA, this is the ONE.
