“ATV tour”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We booked this 5 hour tour through the mountains and jungle of southern Costa Rica (Uvita). There were four couples on this tour and each had their own ATV. Diego was our guide and he was very personable and knowledgeable. The trails were quite challenging and some very steep climbs. There were several rest stops with gorgeous views of the mountains and valleys. Water and snacks were provided. However, there are no real washroom facilities available. We saw a sloth moving out onto a branch for some fruit. We went to a small waterfall for a swim and were provided with fresh pineapple -delicious! It was a good tour but if you are not adventurous you may want to ride on the back!

“Wonderful, Awesome, Amazing, Great . . .”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

What else can I say? When my friend told me that she'd scheduled us for a 6-hour ATV tour, I thought, "isn't that a big long to ride around on ATVs?"

Nonsense! At the end of our tour, everyone in our group was sad that it was over. We climbed mountains, we dove off of a waterfall, we stopped at a little shop mid-mountain and had beer and chips. Our tour guides were kind, patient . . . and not at all bad-looking.

Even when one in our group had a mishap with her ATV, the owner was patient and fair in settling up.

Go go go go!

“Great Time!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Our family, including grandpa and two children ages 2 and 5, had a great time ATVing. Diego was our guide and drove a gator with grandpa and the kids while all the adults, from very experienced to complete novices, were on ATVs. There was a recent rain, so Diego took the time to make sure everyone got through the muddy hills safely before moving on. We had beautiful weather with nice stops along the way to see vistas, take a few snack breaks, and then finally head to the amazing waterfall where the company provided fresh fruit and other snacks, juice, water, and the opportunity for a 40 ft. waterfall jump. Great time - we were happy and muddy at the end!

“An awesome day of ATVing”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you are looking for a little adventure, a lot of fun, and bunches of excitement, then this is the place to go. WIll's crew were very knowledgeable as they took our group of eight up into the hills and mountains surrounding Uvita, Costa Rica. Our two guides, Robert and Diego were very helpful and fun. Our crew had some experienced and some inexperienced riders, but that didn't matter because Robert and Diego took their time and helped everyone. The trails we rode were a bit more rugged than I was used to, but totally that made it more challenging and fun. The waterfall break with pineapple, fruit juices, and granola bars was welcomed relief from the dust and heat. This trip is a bit pricey but worth the money. We took some great pictures and are only too happy to recommend this to anyone who likes off-roading. Thanks guys.

“Awesome Ride!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We were in Costa Rica the first week in December and did the ATV tour with Adventure Motorsports. Before we came down, I was able to set everything up with Will, who was very helpful through all of our email exchanges :) We rode the 4-5 hour tour and it was amazing. I myself had never ridden an ATV before and though one of the members of my group thought the course to be pretty rough for an amateur rider, I thought it was just fine! Diego, our guide, as mentioned in previous reviews was absolutely wonderful! He always stopped when he knew there was a good photo op and was great at spotting the wild-life up in the trees (at times I wasn't sure how he spotted them since we were riding so fast! :). I would definitely do this tour again, and I definitely would recommend it to others.
