    You might think you couldn’t fit all these activities in one day, but that would be incorrect! Everything was fun and nothing felt rushed.
    Though I was worried about the rapids being too much for river tubing, it was my favorite part of the trip. There were staff at all the really tough crossings to help if you tipped over. Plus there were at least four kids under 10 that went. And if they can do it, you can too!
    The zip line was another great activity. Everything felt really safe and the staff were always there to get us through the course.
    Santos and Diego were our shuttle crew, doing pickups and driving to all the activities. They were great, offering fun times and interesting knowledge of the area.

    Logistics -
    The only concerns I had were how to prepare for the different clothing needs. I wore a bathing suit under my clothes and brought a change once we were done at the hot springs, where there were places to change.
    I was picked up from my hotel in Playas del Coco about 7:30am. It was a very full day, and because of traffic, I got back to my hotel about 6:30pm.
    It was a beautiful day and didn’t rain at all.

    I highly recommend this tour!

    From the booking request to the final implementation, everything went perfectly and courteously. Punctual pickup and amazing sights that day. Volcanic lake, active volcano, beautifal Granada, Lake Nicaragua and its islands, monkey feeding. Great breakfast with a beautiful view of the lake and delicious lunch in the city. It was great organized. The guide was really great, friendly and funny. Many people (also drivers on both sides of the boarder) took care of a great day for us.
    Thank the whole team for a great experience!!!

    My elderly parents and I enjoyed the tour. We saw monkeys, various birds and a crocodile. Weather was nice and mosquitos were minimal. Our guide picked us up and talked about the local area and wildlife. He was very knowledgable. We would recommend this tour for those not able to do the walking tours.

    This tour had so many adventures all in one day! Jason was an excellent guide. He told us what to pack, so we were prepared for each activity. He gave us a breakdown of the day, was there to help us transition to each activity, and was endlessly patient. Lunch was included and the authentic Costa Rican dish was great.

    We had such a great time that we booked a couple other excursions with ATV Beach Tour.

    PURA VIDA!!

    Awesome experience, loved the white faced and howler monkeys, crocks up close, bats, and so many birds we do not have in North America. Rainer was a fantastic guide and lunch at the ranch was authentic and delicious. Great for the whole family. Even 4 month old Theo enjoyed.

    Amazing excursion. Our tour guide, Jason, was incredible! Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and really cared about what we wanted to do. We first went to the waterfall, Rio Celeste, the "hike" was pretty easy but there are pretty steep stairs (248 steps) going down to the waterfall. Going up, definitely had to take a couple breaks but was definitely doable. Well worth it. We saw lizards and amazing plants we even spotted a baby viper and a green forest snake, it was awesome! He gave us the option to do a 3 hour round hike but we didnt want to at the time, but loved that we had that option. We then go to swim in a little river where the waterfall went into. From there we ate at a local restaurant and the food was great. The service as well. Inside there was even a butterfly sanctuary and it was amazing! So many beautiful butterflies! (No Disney pun intended.) From there we went to a nature sanctuary. There were some cool farm animals we saw. Then once we started the walk we saw sloths! We saw babies, nocturnal ones, and got pretty close to one! It was so amazing! The tour guide was awesome. Showed us frogs, lizards, insects, amazing plants. Our whole group had an amazing day! Jason pointed out local volcanoes and even gave us the option to go on the magnetic road that pulls cars. Some group members were tired so we didnt but Jason really gave us great options to see even more of Costa Rica! I would definitely recommend this excursion, you see so much and have a really great time!

    This was one of three tours with did with this company. Highly recommend. Carlos was our guide for a great day. He was professional and funny and very informative about Costa Rica. It's a great tour and I recommend you do the "extra" waterfall (Cortez) for swimming. Thank you Carlos! Even my teens had a blast

  • In May we returned to Guanacaste and again hired the amazing brothers of ATV Beach Tours. This time for a river estuary tour in the Palo Verde National Park. Hands down, this was one of THE best experiences we have ever had in our entire lives.

    My husband, older son (age 14) and younger son (age 10), were guided by Jason and we saw sooooooo many animals. Our city eyes would have never spotted most of them, but Jason patiently pointed each one out and even had a full-color guide to share the official name and photo of each one to help us out.

    On the road we saw coati, ring-tailed squirrels, Howler monkeys, and Iguanas.

    Along the river we saw an Anteater sleeping in a tree over the river, many Green and brown basilisks (Jesus lizards), Long nose bats sleeping on the underside of tree branch over the river. We a had close-up (and safe) experience with a solo male white-faced Capuchin monkey that delighted us all, and also saw a huge troop/family of other Capuchins who were more shy but came close enough for us to see the human like features on their faces.

    We saw many beautiful birds including Bare-Throated Tiger Heron, white Ibis and snow egret... and we saw.... Crocodiles!!! Oh my goodness they are massive and scary, and the experienced pilot of our boat knew just where to guide the boat so we could see them up close.

    On the return drive we stopped at Iguana Park in a small town and Jason showed us the hundreds of iguanas all over in trees and bushes, just like squirrels back home.

    If you spend any money on a wildlife experience while in Guanacaste, this is the tour for you. We have travelled all over the world and this was easily one of the top 10 days of our lives!

    Since this was my first trip to Costa Rica- I was unsure of what to expect. This trip would have not been the same without the guidance of Harold! He is awesome! With Harold as our guide, I felt very safe, in good hands and well taken care of. Harold was very knowledgable about so many things about Costa Rica, I was very impressed. Harold truly a good person, very well rounded and just a perfect host. The tour entailed going to Rio Celeste waterfall, a wonderful lunch, a Sloths adventure and then shopping! Next time I go back to Costa Rica - I am contacted Harold for every day I will be there! Once he knows what you would like - he takes care of everything! He went above and beyond and made my first trip to Costa Rica AMAZING!

    Denise with Xolore Costa Rica was a fantastic addition to our trip! Her communication was incredible. Never more than a few minutes to get a response. She set up our airport transfers, which were on time, informative, and fun. She also arranged for a sunset private catamaran tour with Ti Marouba. Let me tell you, these folks take you on a Great trip. They use the sails the majority of the time if the wind allows, which gives such a better experience that vibrating engines and diesel fumes. Nothing but the sound of the waves. They prepare great drinks. And they are constantly showing you a great time. They will Point out wildlife. They will even put out two rods and let you catch fish! Nobody does that. We caught three fish and they filleted them on the deck and served it up fresh on the spot. AmazinglyDelicious. Doesn’t get any fresher than that! No experience needed. Our wives felled in the fish and had a blast. Such an entertaining day. We have been on 60+ catamaran tours, and this was one of our favorite in the whole world. The guys who run this boat love their job and it shows. Could not ask for a better afternoon. If you are going to Costa Rica, make sure you use Denise and Xplore Costa Rica for everything from airport transfers, to atv tours, to catamaran sunset cruises, she can arrange it all at the drop of a hat, so don’t look anywhere else. Pura Vida
