Rev up your motors for high speed adventure! The FourTrax ATV offroad adventure in Manuel Antonio is an awesome adventure that will take you through backroads, jungle and farms.
The day starts off when you are picked up from your Manuel Antonio hotel. You will be brought to nearby San Antonio de Damas where the adventure begins. When you arrive, your guide will provide you with a safety and operation class, helmet and ATV with semi-automatic transmission. Then you will be on your way ripping down the backroads with your guide and fellow adventurers.
The tour will take you through several small rural villages. You will also pass through papaya, African palm, teak and rice plantations. This is a side of Costa Rica that few tourists see, sure to provide an enlightening experience.
Eventually you will reach the Rainmaker Rainforest Reserve where you will leave your quad and take a one mile hike into the jungle. With a little cooperation from Mother Nature you may have the chance of seeing monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots, dart frogs or any of the many other species of wildlife that inhabit the park. After about 20 – 30 minutes of hiking you will reach a towering 150 foot waterfall where you can rest, relax and swim.
After cooling down you will hike back to your ATV and then ride back to the adventure center. A typical Costa Rican meal will be waiting for you to replenish after the adventure. Here you can change into dry clothes. Then a transfer will be provided back to your hotel.
This tour usually lasts around four hours, though this is subject to change. No experience is necessary, though drivers must possess a valid drivers license and be at least 16 years old. If the guide does not believe that you will be able to operate the ATV safely they will ask you to pair with one of your fellow travelers or double up with the guide. This high speed adventure includes guide, meal, transportation and trail entrances. You'll need a change of dry clothes, towel, rain gear, sunscreen, and insect repellent
