Overview

We take travelers on adventures in TOMCARS (an amazing vehicle that is capable of going anywhere and back). Forget 4-wheelers, dirt bikes, dune buggies, or any of those types of off-road vehicles. The TOMCAR blows them all away. No matter how difficult the terrain, this vehicle handles it with comfort and ease leaving you feeling safe and secure while you drive through the most amazing and beautiful hidden natural treasures of The Jaco Costa Rica area. Anyone from your 6 year old to your great grandma will enjoy the ride. We can customize the adventure just for you. From surf to nature, sunrise to sunset, we will take you through the heavy jungle, the most amazing rivers, streams, mountains and waterfalls you can ever imagine.
