ATV jungle tour
By the staff of Dirt Wheels
; The country of Costa Rica is located in Central America, south of
Nicaragua and north of Panama. It’s
bordered by the Pacific Ocean on
one side and the Atlantic Ocean on
the other. In between is beautiful
mountain terrain covered in a thick
layer of tropical foliage. In the areas
away from the beach and towns, it’s
pretty much a jungle, or the perfect
place to go for an ATV ride.
Most people don’t realize how popular ATV riding is in Costa Rica.
There’s really no other type of vehicle
that’s better than a 4x4 quad for getting to some of the remote areas.
Since some of the trails can be rather
difficult, the rides tend to include a
large group of riders to help each
other make it through.
Here are some photos of a recent
ride by a Costa Rican ATV club that
Arturo Herrera is a member of. These
Dirt Wheels readers all appear to be
wearing grins under their helmets
and having a great time.
No, this is not Disneyland. It’s a real
jungle cruise on a ride that you control.
Just how far can a 4x4 quad lean without tipping over? About that far.
It’s nice to have a support team and cheering section when you’re trying to ride up
a steep, narrow trail that even goats have trouble with.
