tamecia_c, July 2022
Our guide Nelson for the ATV was THEEEE BEST and made our excursion sooo much fun 😀!!!! The alligator portion of the excursion was not what I expected as I thought we'd see them a little closer or on a boat thru the river with a guide. There was no guide only a bridge to walk across but it was a beautiful view nonetheless
Response from Host, July 2022
Hello Tamecia, you're right, as the description on our website shows, we stop at the Tarcoles River Bridge to look at the crocodiles in their environment. A boat tour is not included. However, you're presenting a good opportunity which we can create. We will keep this in mind to bring out a new tour from San Jose. Thank you so much for your comment! We will let Nelson know about it. Best regards!

Kaosy_A, June 2022
The overall ATV experience was good but we only road ATV for an 1 hour and a half it was supposed to be 2 hours. Also we did not get to see the crocodile hotspot, I was upset about that.

Driver was a cool guy. A bit talkative, but all in good vibes. The trip was long to the Caribbean coast so be prepared for 3 hours each way minimum. Pura Vida!
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Hello Machel, I think you are confusing us with someone else, we are not located in the Caribbean area and our driving time from San Jose is only around 1.5hrs. Cheers! Deyvis Brenes

Trip of a life time.
Robert_H, Dec 2021
Tour guide was very good. It was exciting and the views were excellent. I would do it again. Great atv ride.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Thank you for your comment Robert, hope to see you again to understand why 4 stars and not 5 if everything was great. Anyway, thank you for enjoying this amazing adventure with us and for having chosen Costa Rica as your vacation destination.
Andrew_C, Dec 2021
Wow!! This was awesome! We ended up driving from San Jose to the first part of the pacific coast about an hour out. The trip was so worth it because we were able to ride the ATVs through a rainforest, by a waterfall, on the beach, and in a river! It was a perfect length of riding and accompanied with beautiful views. Our guide was super helpful and assisting with any ATV questions. Our driver stopped us by a crocodile spot, a free lunch love with delicious food, and a cute souvenir shop as well. Not enough nice things to say about this day - I felt like a kid again handling the ATV! Also the guide also took pictures by the waterfall and has a professional photographer in the river if you want to purchase those images.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Wow! thank you for this amazing review! Hope to see you again in Costa Rica soon.
Njeca_L, Nov 2021
It was great! We didn’t stop to enjoy the beach view which was unfortunate but it was a thrill ride for sure. I enjoyed it!
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for your comment Njeca! Nice to see that you enjoyed the activity. Hope to see you again in Costa Rica.
Good overall
Kenric_W, Nov 2021
This was a good overall tour. Our tour guide was amazing and made sure to keep up with my husband and I during the tour. It was just us two. We wore shorts for the ride(because we didn’t know better) and I ended up with a 2nd degree burn on my calf from steam that came from the water hitting the hot engine. They should recommend long pants for this tour or suggest that people in shorts rent the long boots that they have to keep this from happening. The burn I received is very painful and I’m sure will leave an ugly scar. Otherwise tour was good
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you for your comment Kenric, Love that you had enjoyed the activity despite the experience. I'm very sorry to hear about your mishap. We highly recommend renting the boots in case of no ATV experience. It is mandatory in our protocols to explain to our visitors all about the tour in advance, and this was not the exception. I've checked it with the operation department, and you had said no to the boots. Maybe next time!
Linda_M, Oct 2021

Great tour and guide!
Braya_C, June 2021
This was an awesome tour! the mountain portion is a little scary just because its a natural terrain, but our guide was great and knowledgable (Louise) he had so many jokes and kept us laughing. We saw everything from wild crabs to wild horses, I recommend as this was one of our fave parts.
Response from Host, June 2021
