“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

4 fiftysomething's spent a great day in green season with Karl, giving us a chance to see views most other visitors will miss. Karl is a very friendly gringo, his equipment is top notch and he won't hurry the pace of a novice group. Great natural snacks during the ride, and don't miss dinner at Soda Pena! I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this tour.

“What a Fun Adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

My family consisting of a 6-year-old, husband, and parents in their early seventies had a thrilling time with Karl in Costa Rica. He takes you on quite the adventure filled with amazing vistas, wildlife, and waterfalls while taking you on a exciting ATV ride through the mountains. We started off having a wonderful Costa Rican breakfast at the soda next to his business recommended by Karl. Then we were off for instructions and off to a running start. By the way, Karl was very sick the day before and went out of his way to spend an entire day with us acting as if he felt 100%. He could have easily stayed in bed, but he didn't want to ruin one day of our trip by having to cancel. I am so glad he mustered up the strength, because our trip would not have been the same without this tour. This was one of the best tours on our vacation. We found a sloth on the side of the road and even got to help move him into the forest. Even the rain at the end only enhanced this incredible experience.

“A Must Do Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had an amazing day with Karl. His ATV tour is wonderful. He has a great personality and his knowledge of the local area is extensive. He will take you places off the beaten path that are nothing short of breathtaking. Karl is a lot of fun and his ATV's are top quality and very easy to ride. Also check out Soda Pena next to his office after your ride. Incredible lunch and one of the best cups of coffee in CR.

“Great Tour on CR Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Karl's ATV tour was the only tour we booked ahead of time for our 11 day trip and it was by far the best! He's great at giving direction and tells the 4 of us at the beginning that this is OUR tour and we can set the pace as we want - stopping for pictures or zooming ahead. He seemed to choose our course based on our skill level or willingness for adventure and we even rode through some treacherous yet exciting areas. We even rode on the 34 and it kinda felt like we were one of the locals riding on their motorbikes. We had originally thought that we would see the Nauyaca waterfalls, but upon his recommendation due to the heavy rainfall, we went to another waterfall that would be more enjoyable to see. He would stop to point out certain plants or animals but would otherwise let us take in the views at our own pace. He was even more than willing to turn around when one of us had spotted a monkey tree that the rest of us missed. This is truly a full day tour, but well worth every penny. We opted to stop at a local soda for lunch and got a great view of the waterfall we had visited. If I'm ever back in Costa Rica, I'm definitely booking a repelling trip with Karl!

“Fantastic Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Our family had a wonderful time riding ATV's with Karl. It was our last day in Costa Rica and Karl's tour was the perfect way to end our trip because we were able to see all of Dominical from the beautiful vistas we reached on the quads. Karl is easy going and very helpful. He helped our teenage daughter learn to ride the quad and by the end of the trip she was an expert. He let us take our time so the tour wasn't rushed and we even stopped and had a delicious lunch at a local soda. This is great family fun for all ages. Don't worry if you haven't ridden an ATV before, Karl makes it easy to learn. Thank you Karl - Pura vida!!
