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.

Off the chart jungle experience .rent an atv and go out toward bluff ,keep going on jungle trails and come to remote swim holes and beaches .also ride to el Drago for swim at starfish beach .This gives you a real feel for the place .Don't get discouraged by the town of bocas ,it is poor ,the people mean well ,and can be friendly , but out of town is tropical paradise .We have seen sloths ,Toucans, falcon , monkeys ,butterflies, not to mention all the plant types and other birds .great swimming and snorkeling pools to really enjoy the place .come with open mind and enjoy this really special place .

My wife and I rented one ATV to share from Flying Pirates, and we had a total blast, even in the rain. We stayed at Playa Bluff hotel, which is a goodly distance from Bocas Town, so renting an ATV was our transportation around the island, and much faster than getting a taxi because you can fly across bumps and potholes in the road. We drove the thing all over the place: to dinner in Bocas Town - cruising down the strip like a boss - to Flying Pirates's own jungle trails around the edge of the island. The best part of the experience is how rare one has the opportunity to do this sort of thing - challenge yourself to make your way through flooded trails full of tree roots and branches, drive through creeks and huge potholes that you don't know how deep the water is, and if it's wet, get totally muddy and dirty like you're a kid again. It was a TOTAL blast. There's a reason why Flying Pirates is number in Bocas Town, and that reason is because the owner and his staff have set up and excellent, innovative business with outstanding customer service and delivery a truly wonderful experience. They even give you a celebratory cerveza when you return the ATV back in one piece. Often, success is all in the details. Thank you - great job to all your staff.

I know the owners of Flying Pirates. They work day and night to ensure that you have a great time. I ATV'd through the actual jungle. The helmets you wear aren't totally in case of an accident but for the tree branches that hit it. So wear your helmet!!!

We rented a pair of Quads from this guy. Had as small problem and it was dealt with right away. Rental is affordable and almost a necessity there.

My friends and I do a get together trip every year or two and we always do a ATV rental in what ever exotic place we go. Most of the time it's a boring old guided trips on atv's that never go thru anything remotely fun. But in Bocas boy did we have another thing coming! Not only were we allowed to run free but the trails were better than anything we could have imagined! Miles of beautiful rain forest surrounded by monkeys, ocean and wildlife! Trails so fun I wish we wouldn't have done it on our last day cause I'd have been glad to do it over and over just to go on all the trails we didn't have time for. Good for newbies (just take the jungle highway and blow your mind) or the more experienced (the monkey trail). I CANNOT STRESS HOW MUCH FUN WE HAD! The staff was great (all the beer you can drink when the trip was over) and the ATVs were amazing( no four wheelers with golf cart engines) the real deals. This place made our trip and Bocas was amazing without it! If you love adventure or just a good time NOTHING AND I DO MEAN NOTHING COMPARES! There is a hike around some caves to a beautiful private beach that is cool too if you need a break from the excitement and some amazing beaches to rinse the mud off. All in all I'd give it 10 stars if I could. If you are ever in Bocas or just wanna have a great time this is the place to go!
