About
Driving through back roads and beaches in a Monkey Buggy is an experience like no other in Costa Rica. It is by far the best way to explore the Guanacastecan coast, and is ideal for car enthusiasts, adrenaline seekers and of course anyone who wants to discover the beautiful and remote landscapes of this tropical country. Monkey Buggy tours venture through many remote roads, communities, beaches, nature and wildlife areas, and mountains. This off road Flamingo adventure also allows you to experience nature and wildlife in their natural habitat, while at the same time traveling through rivers, beaches, rain and dry forest. We provide all the equipment and a professional guide.

These buggies are perfect for the roads in Costa Rica. They are so fun to drive and we'll maintained. Vic and his tour guides are so knowledgeable. We saw remote beaches, local fruit stands, monkeys and much more. Pura Vida.

Victor was a tremendous tour guide. He took us to many beaches, lookout points and hidden gems throughout the region.

We spent three hours touring beaches and backcountry roads as well as visited local areas so we could see how the locals live.

Victor was a great guide and he customized the tour to our preferences which made it enjoyable for everyone in our group of 12 people.

The buggies were fun to drive and the off-road driving was lots of fun. We definitely recommend Victor to anyone looking for a fun filled afternoon.

We went on a beach tour with Josue (Gallo) and Gilberto (Torito) both of which were excellent. We had an amazing adventure. The driving itself in an open-air buggy, with a four-speed manual transmission, was very enjoyable. Add in the spectacular scenery and you have a winning combo. The guys did frequent stops for water, and snacks, which were amazing - we had home made brownies, cookies, fresh fruits, and drank from an ice-cold fresh coconut. How can you beat that?

Do this tour without hesitation, it's a blast. The only thing better than the tour were our two tour guides and the owner Brian, who picked us up at our hotel.

Our family enjoyed the beach tours , it was the perfect tour for everyone in our group. Joshua was a amazing tour guide and was very informative on the local wildlife and nice places to see. I would highly recommend this trip for families that don't want to ride ATV,s but would like to go see the country side.

Don't let me forget Maik in the office , very friendly and helpful.

We did the 6-hr cultural buggy tour and had an absolutely amazing time! We were fortunate enough to get a private tour, as we were the only ones booked in that day. It was a great way to see Costa Rica off the beaten path, cruising on back roads up into the mountains complete with shallow river crossings and ending the tour on the beaches. The highlight was a stop at an authentic working farm where the grandmother made us tortillas over an open fire (made from their own ground corn flour) that we got to enjoy with their homemade cheese! We also got to have some serious fun digging our way across a deep sand beach in our buggy! The guides were friendly and knowledgeable, sharing bits of info via walkie-talkie as we drove. They spotted out monkeys for us and picked local fruits along the way for us to try. They also took pictures and videos for us and shared them with us afterward via email! Would highly recommend this adventure!!

Can't say enough good things about this adventure. We took the 6 hour culture tour and it was worth every penny. Learned a lot from Brian, Ana, Joshua and they were amazing tour guides. I loved the contrast between the back roads and the beautiful beaches. Of course I have to give praise to the Soda where we stopped for lunch. It was delicious! Highly recommend this as a must do!
