WHAT YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF WHEN GOING ON AN ATV TOUR

Adventure ATV Tours are becoming more popular because they sound like soo much fun. And they ARE!! But even on vacation or because you are on vacation you need stay safe.Nobody wants to end up in a hospital in a foreign country!!!  So there are some safety checks and behaves you should be aware of, and you gonna have the time of your life!!

Here is my personal list of the top 5:

1) Never ride an ATV under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Thats our number 1!! I now you are on vacation and probably even in an all-inclusive resort where the booze is free and 24/7, please , please if you booked an ATV tour don’t get drunk before, a good and responsable tour operator will NOT let you drive and there is no money back either.

2) Never ride an ATV inappropriate for your age.

That basically means there are different sizes of ATVs just like bikes, kids under the age of 16 should not be allowed to ride an ATV for an adult. ATVs are difficult to handle and if it is to heavy and to big you could get seriously insured. This one is an important one for me.. I know your kids have their ATV at home and they surely are champions ,but be aware that 99% of ATV tours operators do not have ATVs for Kids!! And again you are on vacation and would not like you kid to end up in the hospital!!

3) Ride only on designated trails and at a safe speed.

ATVs are no toys! A safe speed lets you to control your ATV under different circumstances and since you will be driving off-road there could appear a rock, a tree or even an animal .Dont go off the designated trail and always follow your tour guide.

4) Please don’t show off!!!

I hate show offs, and if it puts you and/or somebody else at risk I hate it even more;))  I think I don’t have to explain this one;)))

5) Use a Helmet , ALWAYS!!!

There are ATV tours you need to put on suites,goggles,gloves…but if it is not necesary a Helmet IS at all costs!!!

I am a 100% sure that there are a lot lot more safety tips and standards if you now them use them!!!!

There you got my 5 top on the list, drive safe and have fun!!!
