Tour de la Paz
ATV Waterfall

3 Hour ATV Tour

Exciting trails through Costa Rica rainforest, spectacular views and an exhilarating nature excursion to the Pura Vida waterfall combine for our crowd-pleasing, 3-Hour Tour de la Paz.

Experience 20 kilometers of rainforest and beach views with your own personal guide, and top the trip off with a quintessential Costa Rican experience; a fantastic trip to a gorgeous, mountain-side waterfall hidden within the tropical rainforest. The 3 Hour Tour de la Paz is where the real fun begins.

Exciting terrain, spectacular views and an amazing swim in a Costa Rica rainforest waterfall!

The Tour de la Paz begins in the mountains directly behind Jacó, and continues roughly half the distance to the peak of the mountain to a beautiful 35ft. waterfall (Cascada del Zorro) – a perfect spot to get a little wet and take some photos.

After the brief stop, we continue up through primary rainforest and above the canopy to the top of the mountain range.

Just beyond the crest of the mountain lies a beautiful mirador offering views of the ocean playing against sands as far south as Manuel Antonio Park, as far west as the Nicoya Peninsula, and as far north as the port city of Puntarenas.

Continuing along the mountain tops and through the rainforest, you arrive at the second, incredible waterfall of your tour with us - the exciting Pura Vida waterfall.

Surrounded by lush rainforest and crested by a natural rock platform, thrill-seeking adventurers may jump over 15 feet down into the crisp, refreshing waterfall pool below. The sounds of rushing water, coupled with the call of exotic birds combine to make this visit to the Pura Vida Falls a truly Costa Rican experience that you will remember for years to come.

To end the tour, we ride the loop that takes us right to the edge of the famous Carara National Park, and then begin our decent back to Adventure Tours in Jaco.

We had a great experience on this tour. Our guide Mike was awesome leading us through the trail and checked on us throughout the trip to make sure we were good since we all had limited experience. We drove through the city, up and down a scenic mountain trail, to a beautiful view to take pictures, then to a hidden waterfall to swim (in some cold water). On the drive back we got to go through a muddy trail which was great. I would definitely recommend!

Fishers, Indiana
My husband and I had an amazing time doing the ATV Waterfall tour. We were both nervous but our guide, Pachi made us feel comfortable. The top of the mountain was breathtaking and the waterfall was refreshing. We got to take our time to get lots of pics. I would highly recommend using this company for your tour.

We chose the 3 hour ATV-Waterfall tour in Jaco and was blown away by the sights. Our tour guides quickly taught us what we needed to know and gave us different ATV’s based on our experience level. It exceeded our expectations in every way! The waterfall stop was amazing to wash some of the dirt off and relax before making our way back down to the city. It was sunny and hot and a perfect experience. We highly recommend!!!

What an amazing tour! Our guide Alex was laid back and helpful - he even switched with my wife on the way up the mountain so she could use a wider and stabler ATV. He also found me a helmet with the right attachment for my GoPro. The tour itself is great fun - and the waterfall / swimming hole was a great capstone. We'd highly recommend this tour to anyone!

I had an excellent experience, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, he showed many interesting plants and animals, we stopped at beautiful viewpoints, swam in a lake, and altogether the guide put a lot of effort to make the experience special and memorable, highly recommend!

This was a beautiful tour. I was so into it that I didn't realize the time had just passed by so quickly. 5 stars!

It was a lot of fun trekking through the rainforest. We were enjoying it more when the guides would play mini games with us to see if we were paying attention. This was the best vacation trip ever.

Thank you Adventure Tours for a great time.

We had a great time, my husband and I did with Adventure Tours Costa Rica. We took a tour of Costa Rica on these nice ATVs as we soaked in the scenery. The waterfalls were my favorite part. Something about them just gives me this calm sense of mind. We also got to go and check out the wildlife. I love nature and all it’s secrets.

This was by far the best vacation I have ever taken. I went with my boyfriend and a few other friends for a getaway. We needed a time away from our lives to refresh and catch up. It was more having fun than getting a chance to catch up since we were so busy. The guides were really cool and know how to have a good time

I went on the ATV tour when I visited Costa Rica. The guide was very outgoing and personable. He made me feel right at home even though I was thousands of miles from my place. I will be returning next year.

Alan was very professional and friendly. He had us engaged the whole time we were together. I intend to return soon. I hope he will still be there and will be able to enjoy his company with our friends. Would recommend if you are in the area.

Great atv tour

My friends and I had a group of 10 and thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Knowledgeable guides showed us up a mountain and to a great fresh water cliff jump.

Five of us took the 3 hour Waterfall tour with a Rhino and 2 Honda atvs with Geraldo as our guide, on the afternoon of March 12, 2019. What a blast. Don't even think of doing an atv tour without including the waterfall. It's definitely worth the extra time and money. Not only is the waterfall and pool a great place to jump in and take a swim, but the trail to get there is cool to navigate as well.

Geraldo stopped periodically to to make sure we were all having a good time. On the way back, he stopped three times to point out toucans sitting in the trees. I still don't know how he could ride and spot those birds at the same time! The ride consisted of dirt roads where you could let the atv unwind, together with challenging hills and valleys that required either a considerable amount of throttle or brakes, together with the waterfall trail that contained more of the same. As a novice rider, ridden twice in CR and Hawaii, I enjoyed the heck out of this ride.

Having traveled all over Costa Rica for the past 20 years, I have enjoyed a variety of different tours. As a travel guide, I look for several things when booking my groups: Safety, dependability, honesty and excitement! Adventure Tours Costa Rica provides all that and more! Having found them a few years back, I make it a point to have all my groups experience their 3-4 hour ATV tour.

ATV & Waterfall 3 hour tour.

This was our 17 year old son's favorite tour while on our 6 day vacation in Costa Rica. Our guide, Gerald, was terrific! He was very good at evaluating our skill levels and paced the tour according to how we were driving.



There were 4 of use. We each got our own ATV and rode to a look out. It was beautiful. Then we rode to a water fall

We had an amazing time. WE rode ATV's to a look out over the country and the Pacific Ocean. It was amazing. We then rode to a waterfall where we went swimming to cool off. It was a 3 hour tour and we had a wonderful time. ATV trails were not very difficult to drive. Just dirt roads.

Ana Victoria


Great experience, nice guide, enough time driving around. The river we went to was beautiful and we could swim and jump



Great tour! My husband and I did a 3 hour tour and got to see some great landscapes! Our tour guide was great, very informative, professional and took his time with our tour. Our tour consisted of riding through the mountainside up to a point where you can see like 3 of Costa Rica’s cities. Then we made our way down to see some waterfalls and got to take a dip in a beautiful river pool. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is visiting Jaco. You get to see the nature that the country has for you and the service was great.

Nick C


We really enjoyed our tour and our guide was great! It was a blast to ride quads through the trails, mountain sides, and rain forest. We even had a stop where we were able to jump off a small cliff into the water. Great experience!

Went on the trip with my son (19). Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great views of Jaco and Tortuga from the top of mountains. Swimming and jumping into waterfall were great ways to cool off. Quads were in good condition and we were offered either manual or semi-automatic so dead easy to drive.

Meggan L


This tour was amazing for my family. We wanted to ride through the mountains and visit a waterfall, and this tour gave us all of that. Highly recommend!!!

Michael M


Worth every minute of the experience. Great off road journey that really gets into some astounding country and scenary. Guides are great. The actual trip can take either a half day or longer. Rugged country and mostral trails and dirt roads. Ecpect to get down and dirty. No real ATV experiece needed. Its a load of fun with a stop at a really nice local watering hole....i.e. BAR. Definately wear covering clothes and be ready t go back to where ever your are staying for a shower, maybe RR from the rough ride.

Patricia D


This experience was amazing we were able to ride through the city as well as the mountain ride up the mountains and down the mountains and experience the waterfall our guide took us to a wonderful restaurant/bar in the mountains where we had the best patacones ever! I would definitely recommend this experience for any family or any goodbye friends when visiting Costa Rica



Riding through the jungles of Costa Rica...the rice fields...the rough terrain and mud...the amazing Mountain View’s, the villages...the waterfalls, stopping to buy tropical fruit from the locals on the way back is something I cannot even put into words. I literally can’t come up with anything that does this experience justice. 🗣 If you come here. DO IT! 🏍🌾🌳🌴🌱☁️🌺 BTW Gerald, the young man who guided us was so knowledgeable, friendly, explained different parts of the trip and gave us a choice to go right or left, gave us local history, took pictures for us whenever we wanted...was personable and pretty awesome! I’ve already sent their info to some friends who are going to CR in a couple of weeks. It’s euphoric.

We had such an amazing time on the 3 hour ATV tour. We also had the best guide, Gerardo! Our little family loved every minute and never laughed so hard. We will definitely be going back!

I have been on many ATV tours all over the world, and this one was in my top 3 trips! The sights were amazing (Waterfall, Jaco beach overlook, mountains, rainforest) and the machines were in great riding shape. We were lucky to book a trip in the late afternoon, and NOT on the weekend....which meant that the 3 of us had a private tour. Being experienced riders, we were able to go faster than if in a large group. If you only have the morning available, and you are experienced, you should book a private tour. The tour guide "Alan" was bi-lingual and an excellent tour guide. We tipped him $20 USD per person, which is something EVERYONE should do. You get to see an amazing country and get your shot of adrenaline too....why not take care of the guy who helps you create awesome memories?? I highly recommend this tour.



Best tour we took in Costa Rica! Thank you Jatnoel!

This trip was everything we had hoped it would be...and more. It took us through the rainforest, rivers, small villages, to a waterfall, uphill, downhill, through small herds of wandering cows on the dirt road, up through the mountains, had lunch at a mountaintop restaurant with a beautiful view, learned a lot about the country, economy, the people, culture and had a great day getting to know the places you wouldn't see from the roadside.

Had a great time with Kevin and Mariana as tour guides. They showed us the back roads on Honda ATVs into the rainforest and instead of waterfall, we jumped into a river fed fresh water pool which had a smaller waterfall.



Had a great time

Super fun tour. Our tour guides literally took us to a remote part of the jungle that ended in a waterfall. Come dressed to get dirty, but that's why it's so memorable. You're going to have a great time



Me and my girlfriend had an amazing experience on our ATV tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and fun! The trails were great and it was so cool going through the jungle on ATVs. The cooloff in the natural swimming hole with a waterfall was even better than I could have imagined. They even picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. This was a great experience all around and I would recommend it to anyone staying in the Jaco area!
