    Our guide, Rigo, was funny and attentive. He took the time to show us around and made the whole experience super fun.

    The person leading the activity was very friendly, very informative and spoke very good English. They pick up and drop off at the hotel. With the ATVs we went to the towns, dirt roads, rivers, mud, you get to enjoy the local fruits....FUN ALL THE WAY!!!

    Our tour guide Johnny, was very helpful. It was our first time using the ATVs, but he explained the equipment operation and hand-signal use thoroughly that it became very easy to use. We originally booked the beach tour, but Johnny was able to accommodate our last minute request to change to the country side/waterfall tour, when it was recommended to us by another hotel guest. Riding the ATVs up and down the mountain hills, crossing multiple creeks to get to the waterfall was amazing! The waterfall was a bit of a let down only because we saw a substantially bigger one the day before. Also, there is a swimming area just below the waterfall so don't forget your swim wear. There were a few locals that were swimming and jumping from the top of the waterfall when we got there. After the waterfall, Johnny also took us to a local farm where we chatted with the farm owners and tasted fresh coffee, lemonade, and ate fried plantains. The owners didn't charge for the refreshments, but they did have a donation box. They also gave us a tour of their farm and explained the different crops they planted. Overall, I thought this tour was great and well worth it! Thank you for a great time!

    Jason was an excellent tour guide. He made my husband and I feel comfortable. It was our first time riding ATV and now my husband wants to buy one. Thank you for a great experience. Pura vida!

    We had so much fun! We got picked up right from our hotel and luckily it was just the 2 of us on the tour. Our guide showed us how to use the ATVs and gave us the option of beach or town tour. We chose town and met a local farmer along the way who told us about his farm and gave us fresh veggies. A+

    Great tour! You go into a local town where you meet your guide at his house. There, he teaches you how to use the ATV and gives you all the appropriate safety equipment. We rode through the rain forest and eventually made our way to 2 beaches. The tour guide stayed within our comfort speed and terrain. Then, he was nice enough to go with us to a local supermarker right across the street to get some coffee and snacks.
