    Our family of 4 spent a week in Playa Potrero. Justin and his outfitters were superb from start to finish. He was always quick to respond and upfront about costs and all the details. We scheduled everything before we left, 3 hour ATV in the mountains and a 2 hour sunset beach ride.

    They'll transport you or you can meet them. Paying cash saves you money, but you can use credit cards. Actually, our stay in CR was via mostly just using credit cards. We brought some US dollars and got a few Colones from the supermarket, never had to use the ATM.

    We followed our guide up to the ATV place, All of us had no experience(including two teens). They explained everything, and we practiced a short bit in the parking area, helmets, goggles, face scarves, and then we were off. A bit on the road then off road past farms, small villages, through shallow rivers, seeing animals,. monkeys, waterfalls, lots of pictures.

    For the horseback ride, Justin drove my wife and youngest daughter(both highly experienced riders) to nearby Brasilito beach where they met up with a local guide and then rode over to beautiful Conchal beach by the Westin- walk, trot, cantor, all according to one's capabilities. Too much fun!

    Justin arranged the trips for just us alone. The prices are extremely reasonable. The guides were safety minded. Highly recommended! We'll use him when we come back- lots of neat choices for adventure. Got to do the catamaran. Many thanks Justin!

    A beautiful boat, great staff, and excellent food made for a wonderful sunset cruise with friends. I have been on several sunset cruises in the Tamarindo/Portero area of Costa Rica over the years and this one is by far the best if you want a private first class experience. More expensive than others, but worth every penny for the wonderful experience. Very nice that it departs out of the new Flamingo Marina now which is a short drive from Reserva Conchal where we always stay.

    We were on a private excursion on Zafira and had an absolute blast. The captains and crew were top notch and it was the highlight of our time in CR! And that’s coming from all 12 of our party!! I could not recommend this company and boat more. We will be booking it two more times in the months to come! You will not be disappointed.

    Absolutely, an awesome day! Highly recommend this tour through Captain Tom (whom we've used every time we've been to CR). We're a family of two, 59 year olds and 29, 28, and 26 year olds. We were picked up by Carlos early a.m., an excellent guide and driver, stopping for a pastry and coffee on the way. Upon arriving in Vandara, we mounted gentle horses to ride to the zip lines (excellent runs and assistants). We also, watched an ox grind sugar cane to make brown sugar, sampled the local coffee and pastry by an "old" baking technique, and slid on a thrilling, water slide. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch made from everything on site. Also, we had a volcanic mud bath then walked into the most beautiful, natural, spring lagoon to swim and experience the waterfall. A few of us also opted for a 15 minute back massage while the others swam in a naturally heated, hot spring pool enjoying a cold beverage. After Vandara, we took a short drive to the Volcan Miravalles which was fascinating watching the steam pour out of the earth. I'm an animal lover so on this tour, I saw peacocks and at Vandara toucans and green parrots. It was a very full day and definitely worth every penny. Go see Captain Tom, he'll hook you up on the zip line tour!

    We had an incredible experience with Candace and Dale and their crew on a sunset tour. We were greeted on the beach by Candace and Dale and we had a lovely chat to them before we boarded the boat. The crew on the boat were really friendly and I really liked watching the care and pride they took in keeping the boat clean and the guests comfortable. We shared a great cruise with members of our family. It was an experience that we will never forget. Do yourself a favour and book with these guys!
    Thanks again, we had a wonderful time!

    Spent a week in Playa Potrero and I kept seeing ATV tours rolling through town. I really wanted to check it out. I had never been on an ATV before. I had asked around some locals who lived in the area and I kept hearing them tell me to book with this company.

    They were right, the owner Justin is a super hands on and makes sure all his ATV's are in perfect shape, clean, and ready to go. I got great instructions on how to drive an ATV and felt comfortable on my first trip ever.

    Highly recommend for ATV tours or anything else you need while in Potrero.
