Costa Rica Coast to Coast Ride

Coast to Coast Smiles

An incredible trip of a lifetime. A beautiful country with an astounding array of wildlife, happy people and wonderful cycling. We met some lovely like minded people and learnt so much about this fascinating country from our superb local guide. We didn't want to leave, and would love to do it all again!

Great trip covering nearly 300 miles, through varied scenery. Guided walks, boat trips, wildlife, plantation tours all added a little extra. The 'rollings' (rolling hills), and 'good hills' certainly made good use of the low gears, but there were some great downhill sections too.

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.

This is a good trip, it can be very hot and humid in places so be prepared for some sweaty cycling. The scenery is great and there are quite a few breathtaking views down into the valleys, the wildlife is quite sparce but it is there if you look for it, and the guided walks and boat tours are well worth the effort if wildlife is what you are looking for. Some of the hotels are not of a very high standard compared to the U.S. and pretty basic, don't expect to sit watching TV in the evening as most of the hotels didn't have one. There are a few lodges which are really nice, there is one in particular that has a pool which overlooks the sea, it is worth waiting around for the sunset (but wear insect repellent!) The food is ok but like everyone else has said be prepared for rice and beans for breakfast, lunch and dinner! It says moderate but there are some pretty big hills that will challenge even the fittest cyclist! The cycling days are pretty short and could/should have been longer. When you consider this is a cycling holiday, you do spend quite a lot of time in the bus so be prepared with books/ipod etc..

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
