ABOUT THE TOUR
Extreme Rainforest is 4 hours of pure adventure! Traveling further into the rainforest, all by the same great dirt roads, remote trails, and riverbeds. Cooling off in a waterfall/natural pool halfway through the tour, and working our way back to downtown Jaco. During our half-day tour, we have the ability to change up the scenery depending on rider skill level, visiting new towns, different waterfalls/natural pools. Our guide will be the judge of this and might decide to take you on other trails, showing you a little different experience if possible.
Please note the following: This tour is operated by a dedicated amount of time (example, 1hr, 2hrs, 3hrs, etc.) and season depending, on skill level, or condition of trails the tour may change its course to offer you the best experience available at that given time!
WHAT TO WEAR
We recommend the use of close-toe shoes (People use sandals, but we highly recommend that you don’t) as the first and most important choice of clothing for the tour. Also, we are off-roading which means we will be getting dirty, so any clothes you don’t mind to throw into the wash afterward (No white clothes, they will be ruined). On this tour, we also arrive at a waterfall/natural pool where you may enter the water, so may be a good idea to wear your swim gear.
WHAT MAY WE SEE
Without a doubt, we have all the possibilities to see many of Costa Rica‘s wildlife during our adventures into the rainforest, but we cannot guarantee that you will spot them. As we are traveling trails frequently traveled and our vehicles make noise especially in bigger groups, it keeps certain wildlife on the outskirts of our trails just outside the line of sight. This won’t rule it out though as frequently we come across many times of birds such as toucans, scarlet macaws. We’ve also spotted on our rides monkeys, sloths, and deer.
SEASONS CHANGE EVERYTHING
In Jaco, the Central Pacific area of Costa Rica, we have two remotely powerful seasons which we call: Dry Season (November – May) and the Wet/Rainy Season (June – October). During the seasons you will see the terrain completely change. Expect dryer trails, less water in the rivers and waterfalls/natural pools, and a TON of dust (We sell bandanas in the office!) While during those wet months the dust turns into mud, fuller rivers and falls/pools, and a great chance of getting wet! Our terrain once saturated with rain (September – October) some trails will become unsafe for us to travel and we will reroute tours.
