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.

The tour included lots of fun off road driving and a small hike to a very refreshing waterfall where Luis shared fresh pineapple with us. He also told us interesting stories about the local history and culture. The Tomcat... More

First we have to say great ride! Mountain vistas, waterfalls, cityscapes say nothing about the dust , dirt and water. Luis is/was a great tour guide very interested in what you say and very easy to talk too, a wealth of information. Watching him with Carnita ( special dog) in her backpack was great. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The owners... More

We are a family of 4 (kids, 9 & 6 yrs). Had a great time in the 4 man ATV, so much fun. Got to see lots of sights and a waterfall. Our guide was great, and we even got a ride back to our condo when we got back. Would recommend this 100%.

My husband and I are not big on excursions but we took our 7 yo son out for something we thought he would like. This ended up being the highlight of our trip. So much fun to see everything around Jaco--mountains, beach, waterfalls, macaws!! I highly recommend this tour--we had Luis and he was great as our guide.
