In case you didn't know, an ATV is a motorcycle with four (large) wheels. Kind of like a jetski on wheels. I did the tour through the hotel. It's only a few minutes from the hotel which is conveniant.

The ride itself was not the most exciting. You drive a bit on the regular roads, but most of it is on unpaved roads. You will be very dusty afterwards.

The ride goes upwards to a hotel that has a great view of Lake Arenal. We stopped there for about 15 minutes to take pictures, enjoy the view, and have a beer. I would have like to drive more off road.

Equipment: The bikes were a lot of fun to drive. They had 5 manual gears with no clutch. It's a breeze to learn, and you'll get to do a few warm up laps before leaving.

They have plenty of power. You'll feel that in the lower gears how the front wheels come off the ground if you give it too much gas.

Directions: Minutes from Tabacon resort. I would also check out fourwheeltrax in La Fortuna.
