ATV/Quad Rental Flying Pirates - ride an ATV, with or without a guide,...

ATV/Quad Rental Flying Pirates - ride an ATV, with or without a guide, through a private, off-limits-to-everyone-else, 1,500 acre rainforest! Your day begins in the heart of Bocas town, where you will be picked up and shuttled to our secondary location just outside of town. We offer surf racks, for those of you wanting to hit the waves while you are out, and all of our bikes come with lock boxes attached for your cameras and cash. Wind your way out of town until you hit Bluff Road and just keep right on going until you reach our property. The Flying Pirates trails will take you through the jungle, then alongside pristine beaches, all perfect for a pit stop and some swimming. Rock Beach, La Piscina and, the newly accessible Blue Lagoon, are all gorgeous natural water formations perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Explore the caves at the tip of the island, and return through Monkey Trail. If you rev your engines a little bit, the monkeys might just yell back at you.

We rented bikes and rode from bocas town to bluff. One of our bikes handle bars because dis attached near the area of flying pirates, so we stopped because we knew they had a shop geared towards fixing quads. They welded the handle bars back on and saved our butts! Huge help. Great people!!!

Magical. Go there and check it out. We've been here for coffee, and now for dinner. Will be back again tomorrow without doubt. Awesome staff and the place is so cool.. Everything at the bar is handmade using wood that floated in from the ocean. Also the owner is basically a real pirate.. With a great personality!!

Pay attention to the briefings from the Flying Pirates team as it will help you navigate the trails and operate the ATV's. All their advice in the briefing was useful -... More

Great spot for locals and tourists! Go to Flying Pirates for incredible ATV rentals with 1,500 acres of private land to explore which includes Pablo Escobar's old house & runway. Then stay and swap stories at Scully's over beer, really good piña coladas and the tostadas or Scully's burger.

We rented an ATV and visited Bluff Beach, La Piscina, the Blue lagoon, Playa estrella,... we had sooo much fun! And we ended up sitting on a hanging couch above the water having a delicious fish burger! Beautiful, and relaxed as ever. Wait for us because we will definitely come back!
