Danny was our guide for the day and we had an amazing time with him. He made stops along the way to point out the wildlife and give us more information about the local birds, trees and areas. The spot for lunch was wonderful with great food and beautiful scenic look into the rainforest. We appreciated the exclusivity of just our family not a large group. Definitely would book again and look forward to our next time!

My teenage daughter and I had an wonderful trip with Danny, our guide showing us some beautiful vistas we would have completely missed if just driving around this beautiful country. We hired a buggy for our selves and our guide lead us on an ATV. There was no one else! Perfect Our only regret is that we didn't have longer to explore more!

Highlights were the mountain-side restaurant where we stopped for local food, swimming and lounging around completely isolated waterfalls, as well as driving through the many streams and riversides.

Considering the time we spent together (the whole day) I'd say this is also good value.

Originally went on a 4 hour tour with a large group of friends. Had such a good time we had to come back a couple days later for the full-day tour! Our guide Danni was absolutely the best with all of his knowledge and experience. He took us on the most amazing adventure of seeing the countryside. From waterfalls to stopping along the way and visiting with the locals, eating lunch and hearing stories we really were immersed in the culture. When Danni heard me say I had been trying to get a picture of the scarlet macaws that I would see fly overhead every day, he took us right to the tree where they make their nest. I highly recommend him as your guide! His knowledge of the landscape and his command of the English language makes him so easy to deal with. Plus he is an all around genuinely nice guy who you want to be friends with!!

In the past our 4 person group has rented ATV's on adventure trips but an unfortunate accident when the mountain road collapsed in Mexico had one person in our group requesting alternative transportation. How fortunate we came upon this full day tour in the buggy. Will be our vehicle of choice if possible in future. First, can't say enough positive things about our guide Danny. He was knowledgeable on birds, animals, plants and the countryside and country. We had some wonderful conversations as well as being well informed about what we were experiencing. We saw great mountain scenery and animals, as well as experiencing some good food and a chocolate producer for our chocoholic. Who knew brahma sliders were not only a thing but a great thing! And the chicken and rice is terrific and much better when served at altitude with fantastic views. The obligatory waterfall was scenic but with so many good things to experience and so much to learn tit seemed anti-climatic though certainly picturesque. Should we return to the Jaco area we will definitely do this again and if we can't we will look up Danny and head out for an evening on the town - he seems to know everybody!

Danny was our guide. We had 2 Buggies with 2 adults and 2 kids in each. Youngest was 6 to 16.
The dust bandanas are a MUST during the dry season!!!!
I can not even express how awesome this tour was! The views are stunning, Danny was SO knowledgeable and great with the kids. We did waterfall, lunch at an amazing place where the kids fished for Tilapia. Swam in the river. Visited a local bar in a tiny village in the mountains for some homemade moonshine. Stopped at a chocolate farm.
Definitely bring cash with for lunch and the local places we stopped. Dont forget to tip your guide and tip him well!
Best 7 hours ever! The highlight of our trip was to see Costa Rica this way!!!
As a travel agent, I Will highly recommend to everyone I know!
Thanks!

I did a 3 hour ATV excursion with this company in 2015, it was amazing and left me wanting more. I finally made it back in 2019 and booked 2 days of ATVing with them, 4 hours each days. Both days of riding were a lot of fun, we went to the mountains, waterfalls, many different lookout, the beach, and my favorite thru the rivers. What's different about AXR is that they dont gather as many customers as they can and take you around to sports where locals try to sell you stuff but you actually ride, ALOT. Difficulty levels of the trails vary but they will gladly customize your trip. What I also think is great about them is they dont combine different groups of people, if you come alone, with a group of 4 or 10 you will have your own guide. Our guide was Eddy, a very knowledgeable & down to earth guy. He has been with them since 2006, he knows the trails like the back of his hands. He knows everything there is to know about all the near by towns, & everything & anything to do with the local rain forest. Overall Eddy was an amazing guide to spend 2 days with, I hope to be back with my kids in a few years and will definitely request Eddy to be our guide. Another thing about the company is all of their Atvs & side by sides a new models and are very well maintained. Amazing company with amazing people. Will be back. Huge thanks to Eddy for the memories that will last forever

This was the absolute highlight of our 10 day trip to Jaco in November, and we did a whole pile of awesome things. We rented the side X side with the bigger engine and spent all day exploring the back-country, jungles, mountain-tops, remote little towns, and incredible little local mountain bars and restaurants tucked in the jungle and mountains.

Our guide, Diego, was incredible. He rode ahead of us on his dirt bike and we followed behind in the buggy. He was a ton of fun to hang out with for the day, he has a great sense of humor, and he speaks excellent English. I would imagine all of AXR's guides are good, but I guarantee that Diego will give you an awesome tour for your money.

I highly recommend this business, its people, and equipment. Top of the list of things to do again when we go back.
