Your day begins with a safety lesson by your guide, who'll show you how to operate and manage your very own ATV. Once comfortable with your vehicle, you'll strap on your helmet, sit down, and hit the trails. Your guide will lead you into the mountains and through tropical forests.
You'll pass African Palm plantations and stop for a swim in the river. Eventually, you'll dismount from the ATVs to go for a walk in "La Selvita," where you'll get to see the primary rainforest and your guide will point out interesting native plants. If you're lucky, you may be able to spot some squirrel monkeys, which are becoming increasingly rare. Your hike will stop along the banks of the Gallega River, giving you the chance to go for a swim. Walk across the jungle's suspension bridges, and go for another dip in the pools next to the river.
Your tour concludes with a typical Tico lunch at a restaurant in the middle of the jungle. This tour lasts 3.5 hours, although all-day tours are available upon request. Tours depart at 7:00 AM, 11:00 AM, and 2:30 PM.

This was the best ATV tour we have ever taken and we’ve done them a dozen times in many countries. Extremely scenic, the waterfall was a perfect place to refresh, and the meal was excellent. The staff was so helpful and accommodating.
They made my daughter feel special and she had an awesome adventure.
Our guide, Mario, did an amazing job making us feel safe and ensured that we were going to have fun! On the way there, our drivers pointed out a common putu/stick bird and a crocodile. We definitely had fun. The property we rode on was beautiful. Mario took us to a private waterfall and gave us a chance to swim and relax. We then had lunch at a beautiful outdoor treehouse. Anywhere did a great job hooking us up with this experience at the last minute. We would totally take this tour again!
