Gear up for a wild ATV adventure ride hitting back roads and private trails outside the Tamarindo area. You’ll be headed through monkey country in this protected tropical dry forest, typical of the Pacific Northwest coastal area. You’ll be crossing rivers and zooming up and down hills while catching stunning ocean and mountain views all in one sensational ride.
Arriving at ATV headquarters, you’ll meet your bilingual guides who will go over safety instructions and give you a helmet to wear. All the ATVs are Hondas so you’ll be riding in style and comfort. Next you’ll receive a demonstration before doing a practice run and be evaluated to determine your ability level. Drivers must be 16 years old and have a valid driver’s license. Children 5 years old and up can ride as a passenger with a parent or guide. Ensuring your safety is their #1 priority.
You’ll head out into a privately owned protected lowland tropical dry forest, endangered worldwide due to the ease of clear cutting, where you’ll see rare Pochote and Teak trees previously over harvested for lumber. These trees provide needed habitat for a variety of native wildlife including the monkeys and exotic birds now making their home here. You’ll ride through the success of the reforestation projects as you traverse these winding forest trails. Your friendly guides will help you spot and identify any animals that may be visible during your visit.
Crossing stream beds and slogging through mud is sure to add to the fun you’ll discover while on this exciting off road adventure. Your guide will be happy to use your camera or cell phone to take videos of you on your epic ride. ATVs allow you to experience everything around you as you travel through these awesome woodland trails.
After about two hours of riding you’ll return to headquarters and be treated to fresh fruit and cold water to wash away any dust in your throat. It’s a good time to share your photos and show that you were born to be wild!
Round trip transportation is provided from the Flamingo area and Tamarindo. Transport times can be up to approximately 45 minutes each way depending on traffic and how far away your lodging is. Also included in this fun half day tour are bilingual guides, entrance fees, Honda ATVs, helmets, water and juice. Time to get your motor movin!
