3 Hour ATV Tour Through Costa Rican Rainforest

Go off-road on rugged trails during a half-day ATV tour from Playa Jaco. After a short orientation, choose to ride or drive your ATV over mountain terrain and through stream beds where you can expect to get wet and muddy. Stop at a panoramic viewpoint and waterfalls where you can take a dip in the natural pool. Suitable for active people who enjoy a challenging ride.

Took a bus tour to this out-of-the-way garden on a hilltop. Beautiful gardens with a view of the ocean & a waterfall. Owner is open & friendly. Driving in a bus is difficult due to winding Mt road. Worth it, however!

We visited this mountain garden and were very impressed. Long paths and stairs led through the gardens. We saw eagles and macaws. The view was fantastic. There were only a few people there so we often had parts of the garden to ourselves.

As a waterfall destination, Pura Vida Gardens is a complete fail. The waterfall is off in the distance and this time of year little water is flowing. As a nature walk with myriad tropical plants, it is well worth the trip... and perhaps the $20. I enjoyed the extensive pathways and saw several colorful frogs, 2 red macaws, and myriad tropical plants in color. I wad fortunate to arrive early in the morning and had the place to myself. As I was leaving at 10:15 several buses from cruise ships were arriving. I am glad that I missed the crowds.

This is not a waterfall tour! If you are into botany and tropical plants this may be a great option. I paid $80 for my family of four (two teenagers). I did attach the “waterfall view” and was underwhelmed. It is a 20 minute garden walk. We did get to see lots of plants and birds like parrots and toucans but the bar/restaurant was also closed at the time of visit. Save the money and go watch the sunset.
