Bikes are usually the way I like to explore, but in Costa Rica my friends and I had the opportunity to go out with some of the best ATV tour guides in the central valley. Power Wheels Adventures in La Fortuna offers private ATV tours through all of the best & natural beauties there are. We spent 6 hours on the La Guaria Finca Bosque and finished our day passing through jungle tunnels that looked like a scene out of Jurassic Park followed by a swim in the river. One thing that I never expected was the amount of upper body strength it took to navigate the ATV at the speeds we chose to ride. My friends and I were sore the next day but it felt good. I never thought ATV's would be so physically challenging. It was like the icing on the cake for me.
Tony, Jeff and their team let us rip through the jungle, splash through mud and at the end of all of it we had a typical dinner at the little outdoor restaurant across the street.
There is no way in the world I would have been able to see any of that on a bike. It was awesome to have a private ride with my friends and the time to take in all of the beauty in La Fortuna.
There really is nothing better than losing track of time and getting so lost in what you’re doing that you can’t imagine anything else. I think I left a piece of my heart in the jungle.
