As more people become interest in eco-travel adventures, Costa Rica has become a major attraction for the adventurous. One type of touring that has become especially popular is ATV tours.

The minimum driving age is 18, but ATV tours allow children six and older to ride in the guide’s ore. This is not a tour for very young children. All of these details are arranged with the tour operator prior to booking.

Before taking the ATV tour it’s recommended that tourists wear and bring sunscreen, wear closed toed shoes (this is not a tour for sandals!), and bring a sweater or jacket for comfort. Also, don’t forget the camera because travelers will experience nature in a way few can imagine.
