ATV Jungle Tours are located just west of Los Fuertes, so about a 30-40 min drive from the hostel (you can take 2 buses, or work out a rate with a taxi, or they can arrange round trip transfers for $10). They also do buggy tours. There are lockers to store your things while you're out on your tour, as well as showers, bathrooms, and drinks for sale. I'd recommend packing a change of clothes- we didn't realize how dirty we were going to get!
I'd never been on an ATV before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Being a mom of 2 boys has meant that I've tried a lot of stuff that I wouldn't normally have chosen on my own, and going on ATVs was no exception- Auri had been super excited to try it, so we headed out on this adventure together.
When we arrived, we got kitted out with bandanas to cover our hair, helmets and goggles (we didn't bother to wear the googles on the ride- Auri got pretty splashed up as he was more adventurous than me, so he probably should have put his down over his eyes). We went with 2 guides, who went through the basics of how to use the ATVs, and then we were off!
The trails go through a hilly, jungle part of the island, with lots of mud puddles (at least during rainy season!). Soon my feet and legs were caked in mud. Auri was pretty much covered in mud from head to tow! The ATVs were pretty easy to drive, other than a little tricky sometimes to steer (I ran off into the bush once, so did Auri). I just kept to the course- Auri said he looked back, and I had a look of intense concentration :) Auri was loving it, doing donut holes and picking up some serious speed.
The final verdict? If you're looking for some action adventure and feeling like a kid again, ATV tours are just the thing! Even for wimps like me, ATVing can be pretty fun, though if I'm going to do something with mud, a mud wrap and a massage at a spa are more my style :)
