ATV / Horseback riding review
Lee_S, Feb 2023
This was a great experience and I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting the area!! Gary and Greddy did a great job working with the horses and making sure everyone had a great time. The ATV tour was super fun.. recommend coming prepared to get muddy!
Awesome zip lining and ATV.
Kishma_C, Nov 2022
We had an amazing time on this tour! The instructor and crew for the zip lining were informative and very helpful. Christian was awesome during our ATV tour, he was obviously familiar with the best routes for us to take to make our tour exciting and adventurous. He was very attentive and helpful. The staff at Vista Los Sueños Adventure Park were very nice as well and the lunch was awesome.
Soggy Fun in the Rain forest

this tour was awesome! We did the Chocolate Tour and the ATV Tour. We had a blast traversing the rainforest in rainy season, it was super soggy and muddy but it was really fun. bring a change of clothes because they offer outdoor private showers to clean up in. A+++++. highly recommended. high class from the start. great work!!
Great Costa Rican experience

We were waiting at 7:30am at our pick up point, but our driver was about 1 hour late due to traffic, and I'm assuming due to this we weren't able to stop at the river to view the crocodiles. We chose to do Ziplining and ATV. As soon as we got to the adventure park, we started zip lining and it was a little rushed as our bus was late. It lasted maybe 1.5 hours but it was fun! After this, we were given fruits and we had a buffet style lunch with coffee, water and fruit drinks from 12-1pm. We then started our ATV tour which was a private tour with only members of our party (3) which was a nice surprise as we were expecting a big group. It started raining pretty heavily but I think it was definitely worth the experience! After the tour, we were given more fruits. At around 3:30pm we left and were stuck in traffic so we were back in San Jose at 6pm. Overall, it was a great experience!
Great deal…be careful who you travel with

Great tour, lunch and deal. Not a fan of the other attendees wanting to make multiple stops on the way back for a 90 minute drive.
Too much fun!

One of the best days in San Jose. The ATV ride was fabulous and the Chocolate Experience is a 'must' for chocolate lovers. It was fun and informative. You will enjoy you day!
Best time in a long time
Angela_D, July 2022
Everything was really nice and well organized. From the transportation to adventure and back, I have nothing but fond memories. If you do horseback for the first time know it’s a physical activity. You will be sour in a good way lol. Wear close toe shoes relax and enjoy. Because we were a bit tired after horseback and eating we were fortunate to have Gabriel give us a tour via ATV. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Absolutely loved it. Best birthday in along time.
Best time ever!

Jamal_G, Apr 2022
This was truly one of the greatest experiences. I've done ziplining and ATV'ing before but the guides were top notch! They educated us so much on Tico culture and made us have a really fun time. I would recommend this to anyone whether your experienced or a novice.
Atv and zipline fun
Jan_D, Apr 2022
Atv and zip lines were awesome. Very helpful guides. If you do the atv ride it’s best to wear some swimming trunks cause you’re gonna get muddy.
The tour guides were...
Rovi_B, Apr 2022
The tour guides were amazing! Super friendly and funny. ATV was definitely worth it, lots of mud and water, even in the dry season. Horseback riding to the waterfall was a blast, I recommend jumping in the water! There were water stations at each stop, but snacks aren't provided throughout so bring some if you don't want to pay for them. However, the lunch was great as well as the juice. Make sure to tip these guys, they were great!
Teresa_M, Mar 2022
Overall the trip was fun. Our tour guides for Atv adventure and horse back riding was amazing. Buckle up when riding there and back to hotel because the driver was reckless
Amazing Tour 10/10
Justin_A, Feb 2022
My fiancee and I had a wonderful time on our tour with our driver Vinny, ATV guide Tony and Horseback guides (forgot their names!). We were picked up on time from our hotel in San Jose in a comfortable air conditioned van. Our first stop was at the Tarcoles River which is a tourist hot spot to see huge crocodiles below the bridge. There is also some roadside shops and restaurant to buy souveniers or food if you'd like. Afterwards we headed to Vista Los Suenos Adventure Park for our ATV ride and horseback ride, which was awesome. For the ATV ride, they talk you through how to use the ATV and let you go on a practice track to ensure you know how to properly use it. After you pass the initial test, the real adventure begins! My fiancee and I followed behind our tour guide going through different areas that offered a variation of the track. We rode through the forest with tall trees, through water, up hills, downhills, with twists and turns etc. We also stopped at a beautiful waterfall midway through to rest, drink water and take pictures. It was my first time on an ATV and I had a great time. If you're riding an ATV ride for the first time, I recommend you wear closed toe shoes and long pants. Afterward, we had lunch in their buffet, which was good. Then we had our horseback tour. We were given helmets for the ride and paired with our horses. We rode together in a line to the forest, parked our horses and hiked about 5-10 minutes to a waterfall, where we rested, drank water and took pictures. You are allowed to get in the water at the waterfall if you'd like. For this part of the tour, I recommend bringing water shoes in case you want to get wet. Then we hiked back, got on our horses and rode back to Vista Los Suenos Adventure Park. Overall, we were exhausted but the end, but had an amazing time. I highly recommend this tour!
Thank you guys.

Overall great experience. The ATV tour was great. Our tour guy is israel was great. Good was good as well. I book it again with them . Our driver was nice as well
Finally a fun day
Bamidele_Y, Aug 2021
ATV experience was fun, but I struggled getting to the water fall I was extremely tired because of my weight. Need shorter route. Love the chocolate tour. People were nice and the food for lunch was ok. However they were calling us to tell us we needed to pay $15 per extra fir our pickup. We tipped the drivers $35. I feel all cost should be upfront and clear. We waited until 10:00 to be picked up. Overall it was fun. Thank you
Great experience

I would deff come back again
Great but never went to the beach
Michele G, Oct 2018
I loved this tour. I had a lot of fun and the tour guides were very sweet, funny, and comforting. However the driver did not take us to the beach as he said he would. It seemed like he wanted to get the drop-off over with. That was a huge bummer.
