It was a complete rip off.
Oct. 2021 • Couples
This is a rip off. Do not book this tour. There are plenty of other ATV tours that you can book directly at the hotel (we stayed at Crocs’ Casino and Resort) for much cheaper at $65 per person for 1.5 hours. First of all, they were supposed to pick us up at 10:40 am; however, they arrived over an hour late. Secondly, they did not stop by the Tarcoles River for sighting of the alligators like advertised. We only spent a total of 1 hour and 30 minutes riding the ATV. We had less than 5 minutes at the beach as the tour guide Tony was rushing us to finish up quickly and go back. They said that since we did not get to see the gators at the Tarcoles River, they would buy us free lunches instead. They took us to a small restaurant on the street with flies zooming around while we were eating. We were allowed to order the cheapest item on the menu at 3,500 colons, equivalent to $5.60. After we finished eating, we had to wait about 30 minutes for them to come picking us up. They took us back to the ATV place and we had to wait for another 15 minutes for them to wait for another party to finish with their tour. To make the matter worse, we had to share the van with the most obnoxious old and racist white guy from US. The old fool was mocking us in a made up Asian accents as he was talking to us. The old fool was lucky that my wife was there and calmed me down as I was about to teach the old fool on how to behave in a civilized manner among other human beings as it seemed like he has never got to learn that most basic trait of decency in human behavior. In conclusion, if you book this tour you will be paying more than double what others would pay for very much the same tour with the same time window. It would be best that you book directly from the hotel instead of via these websites like Viator.

Hello Jimmy, thanks for your comment. We always care about reviews to improve our services. One by one: You had posted the only bad review we have on TripAdvisor/Viator platform, all others are FIVE Stars. Please don't point out our activity as a rip-off. Next time, please learn where San Jose and Jaco Beach are located. Then you will be able to book the correct activity at the right cost. We also offer this activity from Croc's (Jaco Beach) for $70 USD on Viator/TripAdvisor and other websites. The van was late, that is right, this happened to cause our operation team was reading the booking as "From San Jose" and not "from Jaco Beach", but this was our mistake. I do apologize. The Tarcoles River Bridge is between San Jose and Jaco Beach where we have our park, you were in Jaco Beach. Tony is a great guide, even so, we will talk with him to see what happened that day, also with the restaurant. The other circumstances are out of our hands, we can not control the way people vocalize, or if they are racist or not. One tip: If you are traveling on your own and you book online, read the FAQs on the description, make sure you understand where the activity will take place and where you will be located, use a phone number where you can be reachable by the tour operator. And if you have any doubt, call before booking, we all are willing to help you to enjoy Costa Rica as much as possible. By the way, our tour is not the cheapest, because is the best one in the area. If you like the cheapest option, book in place. We have the same price online and offline.

Great end to our trip!
This was a great experience from the beginning with being picked up from our hotel by Marvin, arriving to Riders Adventures to check in and being assigned our tour guide. Antonio {Tony} was such a great tour guide. Being experienced, he new things to look for and how to keep us safe. The views are beautiful!

He was able to show us a sloth in the tree and a pair of Lapas {Scarlet Macaws}. We also saw horses on our route. As an animal lover this was amazing for me. You will get dirty; one of the best parts. There is an outside shower at Riders to rinse off, so go prepared.

There’s a restaurant near by called ‘Soda el Coquito’ where the food is delicious! After eating Marvin took us to the bridge where we were able to see quite a few crocodiles. The overall experience was adventurous and lovely. I hope to do it again and maybe see the monkeys next time. Also the photographer took great pictures and they’re inexpensive.

Thanks again for a memorable experience. My mum and I truly enjoyed ourselves!!!

Great driver and experience
We absolutely loved our driver elbert, he was sooooo friendly and extra accommodating & nice. The drive was a hour and a half to the atv site and the atv riding was money well spent. It was long enough and a enjoyable time. Overall this experience was pretty great. But the pictures were very expensive to buy from the place and you also can’t just purchase a few. You have to pay the price for all of them but Thank you!

Didn't take the tour, this was a booking problem
Apr. 2021
I didn't take the tour. Unfortunately the tour operator has not implemented the minimum of 2 people from San Jose and the website let me book it. After I had all my plans for that day set up the operator sent me a message telling me that I must cancel since they don't do tours from SJ with only one person. They did contact me the morning after though.

Hello Marco, I am sorry for you... but yes, you are right, you booked the tour 24 hours prior to your intended time, and we wrote to you super soon. Even so, I can see that this affected your plans, please accept my sincere apologies. We never had the problem before, And now we have ensured we will never get it again. Thanks to you, we already introduced the minimum required for the tour operation. Hope next time you can enjoy the best ATV tour that exists from San Jose Costa Rica. As you can read on all other reviews that we have on TripAdvisor. Thanks again for your comment. We will continue enhancing our services. Best regards Deyvis Brenes CEO.
