Manuel Antonio Adventure Tour: Glide Through Costa Rica’s Rainforest by Segway!
If you’re looking for an exciting and different Manuel Antonio eco-tour while on family vacation in Costa Rica then this is it! The Manuel Antonio Segway adventure travel tour is like no other. The Segway tour is quite possibly one of the most exciting activities available in Costa Rica. Whether you are 9 or ninety, this is a unique opportunity to “hike” the Manuel Antonio rainforest while gliding along and enjoying the wonders of one of the world’s most diverse eco-systems.
The Segway eco-tour takes you through Sunrise Farm, a private reserve that is located in Londres, ten miles east of Quepos and close to Manuel Antonio National Park. The two-wheeled, Segway personal transporter is environmentally friendly, lots of fun and very easy to use – perfect for family vacations in Costa Rica! Before the beginning of the eco-tour through the rainforest, qualified English speaking instructors will show you how to safely glide along the rainforest floor, beginning with a video and then practical safety induction. Please note all participants are required to wear a helmet throughout the adventure tour in Manuel Antonio.
Bird watching enthusiasts visiting Costa Rica are in for a treat! With over forty tropical bird species identified in the Manuel Antonio area, bird watchers won’t go home disappointed. Your tour guide will take you through the reserve, passing by stunning creeks and stopping off to take a dip in a natural swimming hole as you enjoy freshly picked bananas, papaya, pineapples and mangos right from Sunrise Farm.
Dress appropriately; taking into account the tropical weather in Costa Rica, morning adventure tours are going to be cooler than afternoon Segway tours. Make sure you wear sun block and take insect repellent. Rain ponchos are available if the Segway tour is taken during Costa Rica’s rainy season. Wear comfortable clothing and ladies, leave the heels at home!

Please note that the minimum age to use a Segway in Costa Rica is eight years of age. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult on the Segway eco-tour in Manuel Antonio.
