We think you'll be surprised by the Segway tour. What do you really know about Segways anyway? Did you know they have two motion and five gyro sensors that make adjustments 100 times per second? Segways reach a top speed of 12 miles per hour and can travel over all kinds of terrain from beach sands to city streets along the two-hour tour.read more close
At the shop in Quepos, you'll meet your guide and watch an introduction video before jumping on the Segway and riding it into a parking lot for a lesson where you'll learn the basics of driving forward, backward, uphill, downhill and turning.
After passing the driving test, you'll cruise on the open roads of Quepos. A guide will take you through town while offering background about the origins of Quepos as you pass along the boardwalk out to the marina. Afterward, you'll take the Segway on the open road, full throttle. You don't have to push any buttons though; all you have to do is lean forward and imagine yourself going fast. The machine does the rest.
After touring the area around the Marina you'll pass back through Quepos to meet a ferry, where you'll load up the Segways and cross over to Cocal Island. Drive along the dirt roads avoiding pot holes and stray coconuts, stop for a drink at a local shop and head out to the beach. On the sand, you'll have the chance to test your skills sliding, spinning and riding up and down the beach. If you're good, you can even do some drifting. Drive down the coastline and look back on Quepos before heading back through town, across the ferry and to the office.
Isn't it at least worth trying before you resign yourself to a life spent walking places?
