Vacation Buggy provides "Only Private Excursions" for families and groups to tour our local area or an exciting adventure to a very remote area of the Rainforest...These Private Excursions are only for you, your family, or group, and we travel in our Extremely Cool, Vacation Buggy custom Jeep Limousines. We offer two very popular excursions - Our Welcoming "get to know the area" excursion, allows you to quickly get acclimated to our towns of Manuel Antonio and Quepos areas as we show you all of the great restaurants, night life, beach's, ATM"s, etc... or experience some of Costa Ricas most remote locations with our extremely popular Jungle/Waterfall excursion - which is one of the only ways to go deep into the True Rainforest. This excursion allows you to see the real side of Costa Rica as we journey through the palm plantation, quaint towns and villages on our way to the top of the Rainforest.. Get acquainted with the local area, explore the incredible jungle or request our unique "Vacation Wedding Buggy" for that special day! Vacation Buggy can accommodate up to 7 guests with one Jeep and 14 with two Jeeps, and is safe, secure and accessible to people of all ages and abilities.

This was one of our favorite adventures during our first visit to Costa Rica. Dopper was a perfect tour guide: knowledgeable, patient, and laid back. We went on a rain forest tour the day before, and I was concerned that maybe the sights and experiences would be redundant. Not at all! First of all, since it was a clear, sunny... More

Our family group of 14 went on the vacation buggy tour on our first day in Costa Rica and it was amazing! Since our group was large, we rode in two separate buggies, and both Dopper and Louis were fun and informative tour guides. This was a great intro to the area, and through the rest of our trip we...
