“Best Tour anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We had so much fun walking and swiming down the river. The rappleing was just icing on the cake! Bring good water shoes with traction or even tennis shoes that empty out well. The hike is not that long but climbing over all of those slippery rocks was a challenge. You will see some of Costa Rica that very few others see. Only availble during the dry season.

“Great Way to see the Real Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Our family of 4 were spoiled by Karl!!! This was our first ATV ride ever and it was a blast - our 14 year old daughter and 16 year old son said this was the funnest thing we did all week. It was an exciting way to see what lies beyond the paved roads - banana and coffee plantations, waterfalls, rural villages, amazing vistas, mist covered mountains. Every bend in the dirt/gravel road brought us amazing views. Bring money with you so you can buy snacks and homegrown coffee beans from the sweet family that runs a rural store way up in the hills. Lots of photo opportunities. Karl knows these "roads" well and made it easy for us to learn how to operate the ATVs. Even my 14 year old daughter looked like she had been driving one all her life. Got to watch a local boy do some amazing cliff dives at Nauyaca Falls. Our tour lasted over 7 hours and included lunch made by Karl at a sweet house in the hills that overlooked the mountains. Worth every penny.

“Thanks Karl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had a great time on our ATV adventure. Karl was super nice and the view on the tour is unexplainable. He took us up into the clouds of the mountians where we had a stop at a store for a cold drink. The waterfall was refreshing and so beautiful. We saw monkeys and other jungle animals. Lunch was very yummy! Made fresh! Karl was super professional and very safe! Thanks Karl for all your advise and help to make the rest of our trip fun!

“Waterfall Nervana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

After being in Dominical, Costa Rica for almost a month doing everything from canopy zip line tours, snorkeling, diving, hiking thru Manual Antonio for white faced monkeys, fishing, and trapsing through every town between Uvita to Quepos, the pure power of an ATV on dirt, boulder filled roads over the mountains and through the woods with stops along the way for photo ops, home grown and roasted coffee beans, the best burgers in Dominical at Tres Amigos and onto the breathtaking Nauyaca Waterfalls for an afternoon swim was the highlight of all the tours we have done! Pure fun! So worth the price and Karl was an awesome host and guide. Had a blast and will do it again! For all those looking for Waterfall Nervana, this is your tour! You will not be disappointed!

“100% real Costa Rica on ATVs ..LOVED!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Best ATV experience ever! ..Doesn’t even compare to the other ATV tours we’ve taken before, this one is not to be missed! We had over 6 hours of SO much fun riding through the hills w/ our guide, Karl ..beautiful coffee farms, stopped at multiple water falls, Toucan birds + monkey sightings, gorgeous ocean views, etc.. We were able to stop anytime we wanted to take photos (never pushed or rushed to stay on a certain schedule), the photo ops during the tour are constant, we got so many amazing shots!

We got two stops at the restaurant Tres Amigos in San Salvador ..it’s only a small local place but the food + drinks were muy deliciouso!! ..(great food isn't always the easiest thing to come by in Costa Rica either so we really appreciated it!)

The owner Karl was such a great guide, very knowledgeable about the areas, often pointing out wildlife for us to see + telling us interesting facts about the nature, locals, etc. We always felt super safe but he’s not too controlling during the ride either, he’s very relaxed + great company ..don’t forget to tell him to bring his apple-pomegranate iced tea that he makes too, it’s SO yummy + refreshing while you’re out in the sun all day!

..We would have never been able to experience + see Costa Rica this way without him, we will never forget it!
