No Costa Rican vacation would be complete without a taste of adventure. While luxury and relaxation are absolutely necessary, you will find that there is more to explore than Los Suenos restaurants and Costa Rica fishing charters. If the term "canyoning Costa Rica" is a little too extreme, you might want to give "ATV tours Costa Rica" a quick Google. These tours can be tailor-made to suit your unique interests -- taking into account any time constraints or budgetary issues that might arise. Of course, the great thing is that these tours are remarkably affordable anyway, so it is always guaranteed to be a rewarding experience.
I'm more of a leisure junky than a thrill seeker; that much is absolutely true. Occasionally, however, I need a break from the pampering and luxury. When this particular mood strikes, I find myself leaning towards the exploration of activities that are fun and exhilarating without being too demanding. On one of my earlier trips here I searched for the best ATV tours Costa Rica had on offer and I was not disappointed. I figured that this would be the type of tour that kept me entertained without making me fear for my life -- and at the time, that was the perfect activity for my tastes.
Generally speaking, the ATV tours Costa Rica travel agencies specialize in cater for everyone from beginners to highly experienced off-roaders. I would definitely suggest checking in with your tour operator to make sure of this fact before signing up for anything. I once accidentally signed up for an advanced ATV tour and spent almost half a day in a state of pure, yet completely amusing, panic. Looking back, I should applaud the tour guides for keeping an eye on me when my skills were so obviously below par. Now that the terror has abated (several years later) I look back on the experience as a serious adrenaline rush.
The great thing about ATV tours is the fact that you can pick an off-road experience that will fit in perfectly with your vacation schedule. From hour-long tours all the way through to intensive full-day trips, you are guaranteed to find the trip that suits your needs best. When you are just starting out, shorter tours may be your best bet. Always take baby steps when discovering a new sport. Off-roading is exciting, but you may need to pace yourself in the beginning.
I always feel that the best ATV tours Costa Rica has available are those that include varying landscapes, gorgeous sights, and a delicious meal at the end of the day. Drink in the sights and sounds and then abate your appetite. Take it from me, a hot meal is the best way to ensure a good night's sleep after a particularly tiring day. Keep an eye out for tour operators that are based near your resort so that you can keep travel times as short as possible. As always, the less stress involved, the better your entire Costa Rican experience will be.
