Pura Vida, Costa Rica!

What a holiday and what a country! This trip more than lived up to our expectations and gave us a wonderful introduction to Latin America. We had a great crowd to travel with, the countryside was beautiful and varied from coast to mountain to rain forest, and the local people could not have been more friendly. All of this, coupled with great cycling, and plentiful food, made it a holiday that will remain long in the memory.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

We felt incredibly privileged to enjoy two weeks of tropical sunshine in the middle of such a grim wet winter in the UK The wildlife of Costa Rica  especially the birds, lived up to our expectations. It felt safe and relaxed to be in a country where we could drink the water from the tap and where we were welcomed so generously.If it had been possible, we should have liked to see a little more of the life of the local population and to learn a little more detail of the history of the country

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

From coast to coast and everything in between, this tour will give you a pretty full exploration of Costa Rica. The  riding is definately moderate skill level, with 2-4 climbs that will certainly test your lungs, but on the whole is very doable, even in the heat of Central America.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

I did the Cycle Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama trip last year and loved it so much I had to come back. Costa Rica is one of my favourite countries with beautiful scenery, amazing beaches, endless wildlife spotting opportunities and excellent riding. This trip has a good split between time spent cycling and time spent exploring the national parks, beaches, botanical gardens and coffee and pineapple plantations.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

This was an excellent trip.  Although it was hot and humid, which was expected, the riding was great.  Some days longer distances would have been nice, but understandably not possible due to bus transfers and lack of roads to cycle on.  The accommodations were fine and I believe all had AirCon so that was nice.  Not sure it was worth the time to go to Tortuguero but the lodge was nice.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

Because the country is small our bikes enabled us to see a variety of scenery, far more than a walking trek,  and gave us time to visit National Parks, Botanical gardens, coffee and pineapple plantations.We also saw a huge number of birds, all beautiful, and ate the most delicious fruit I've ever had.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

An excellent bike trip taking in the highlights of Costa Rica its wildlife and cultures. However, in places I would say this trip verges on moderate to strenuous rather than purely moderate.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

Excellent destination, however trip notes said moderate but as a club cyclist I thought that some days were very hard.  As Costa Rica is a wonderful and exotic country, cycling at mountain bike pace was really good.  Everywhere was colourful, even the locals.

COSTA RICA COAST TO COAST RIDE

A great introduction to Costa Rica.  Cycling is a great way to explore this laid back, friendly, inspirational country.  Despite its size, it has a huge amount to offer - friendly, hospitable, helpful people,  beautiful beaches, spectacular views, lush rainforests, waterways, volcanoes and masses of wildlife!
