“Must do in bocas!!!!!”
Review of Flying Pirates

Flying Pirates
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: ATV/Quad Rental Flying Pirates - ride an ATV, with or without a guide, through a private, off-limits-to-everyone-else, 1,500 acre rainforest! Your day begins in the heart of Bocas town, where you will be picked up and shuttled to our secondary location just outside of town. We offer surf racks, for those of you wanting to hit the waves while you are out, and all of our bikes come with lock boxes attached for your cameras and cash. Wind your way out of town until you hit Bluff Road and just keep right on going until you reach our property. The Flying Pirates trails will take you through the jungle, then alongside pristine beaches, all perfect for a pit stop and some swimming. Rock Beach, La Piscina and, the newly accessible Blue Lagoon, are all gorgeous natural water formations perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Explore the caves at the tip of the island, and return through Monkey Trail. If you rev your engines a little bit, the monkeys might just yell back at you.

“a must do for bocas”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

ive been to bocas del toro twice and i always make a point to rent four wheelers from flying pirates for a day. great trails that let you see parts of the island that are normally inaccessable. if you want to go lounge on a beach no one else can get to or whomp around in the mud and see the sights this is a must.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We planned to hire the ATV's for 2 hours, but the people at Flying Pirates already told us they would not expect us to be back in that time. It was indeed extremely good fun, so we stayed in the jungle for about 4 hours and had one of the best experiences of the whole vacation. I would definitely recommend anyone who goes to Bocas to rent these ATV's and get out to the wonderful (and huge) property of Flying Pirates on Isla Colón!

“Great!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We hired the ATV for 4 hours, it was spectacular. We visited the most beautifull beaches: clean and fantastic ocean views. We also drove in the jungle; an amazing experience! Only the clients of Flying Pirates can visite the farrest part of Isla Colon. Its definitely worth seeing! The crew is friendly, helpfull and the ATV's are well maintained. Everyone can and should hire an ATV to explore the island. Fantastic!

“Insane amounts of fun!!!!!”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

All I can say is do this, you can thank me later!! Had an absolutely fun/amazing time plowing thru the trails that Flying Pirates create for you. You can access beaches with not a sole around while taking in all the sights and sounds. Im from Las Vegas, land of entertainment, and haven't been this entertained in a long time! Steve and Rhonda run the company and are awesome people. I rented for 4 hours for 60 bucks and was able to explore a lot of the terrain, but you may want to go longer so your not rushed. Just as tempting as it is, DO NOT ride on the beach or you will be fined heavily. Other then that, have a blast!!
