ATV Tours jaco costa rica

 

All ATV tours are private. You’ll be following an experienced guide who will ride at your own pace. The trails are accessible gravel roads and dirt in some places, therefore, depending on weather contitions it may be dusty or muddy. Everyone will be aligned into a single file running at a speed that suits your experience while maintaining a high level of security. We provide one or more guides depending on your driving skills and group size. Before tour departure, we impart a short briefing in which you will receive proper instructions.

Tour generally departs from Quebrada Amarilla which is 15 minutes from Jaco. From there we’ll go directly into gravel and dirt roads towards the mountain sites. You will enjoy an amazing scenery going through cattle fields, farms, small creeks, rivers, bridges, forest with diverse vegetation, small rural towns and other beautiful attractions that reflect the real traditional Costa Rican living.

Depending on the tour length you choose, you will be visiting different points of interest described below.

Platanillo Waterfall: It is located at a private property with gorgeous and well taken care of landscapes. The waterfall is approximately 30ft high and even though is not swimmable, it has a small natural pool for refreshing.

Tulin River: This is a lovely river surrounded by lots of vegetation. We stop on a tall bridge which is a perfect site for pictures. The river is vigorous during rainy season but it is very calm and low during dry season. Depending on the river height we can get into the river for some splashing fun.

El Tigre Sightseeing and Restaurant: This is an amazing work of reforestation in progress! The owner of the farm, born and raised in Costa Rica is a nature lover who has slowly been reforesting a mountainous land that was once used for cattle and did not have many trees left. He’s goal is to make it a small forest and refuge for wildlife. At first, he built a big roofed deck to contemplate the stunning panorama overlooking the mountains and the ocean in the background. Now it is a resting area with a typical Restaurant operated by nearby locals and is a great chance to get some drinks, snacks, a homemade meal or simply relax by feeling the nice breeze while observing great views. Part of the income goes towards contributing to planting trees and feeding rescued animals.

Gamalotillo Waterfall: This is the most popular destination within our riders. There is a little walk involved on a jungle like trail beautifully adorned by green vegetation and tall trees. The trail is about 5-minute walk that can be muddy in rainy season. The waterfall is about 30 feet high and perfect for jumping off and splashing water in its natural pool. For those who rather not jumping off, they can just relax and swim in its refreshing waters.
