ABOUT THE TOUR
Extreme Vista 2 hour tour we have the perfect amount of time for some great trail riding to the mountain tops surrounding Jaco. Travel dirt roads, trails, and riverbeds until we reach the peak. Quick break at a local rancho where we can have a quick drink or just a bathroom break while soaking in the stunning view of the valley meeting the Pacific! Finally work our way back down the mountain and return to our shop downtown Jaco.
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 afterwards (No white clothes, they will be ruined).
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 specially 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.
