At PA-CYCLING we can´t stop searching for new exotic destinations for you. This time we present you an incredible itinerary in the ecotourism mecca: Costa Rica. In our 10 days trip we will be riding from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea passing through jungles, cloud forest, volcanoes, waterfalls; all this from our bicycle at the same time that we discover all the exuberant flora and fauna of this country of only 51,000 km2 but which contains 6% of all the biodiversity on the planet.
Our adventure starts pedaling from the mountains of the southwest of Costa Rica´s Central Valley to the Pacific Coast. It will be an excellent way to start our tour, with a nice mix of rural landscapes, jungle and a great beachfront ending.
In the second stage we continue on the Pacific Coast, visiting the “Peñon de Guacalillo” with its famous cliff. After the mandatory stop at the “Crocodiles Bridge” we take our transportation to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, where we will have our first day off. You can use this day doing of the many activities that this beautiful destination have to offer: canopy, handging bridges walks, night walks, among others.
Back on the bike, our third day will be the longest and hardest route of the itinerary; but also one of the most spectacular, we descend from the Monteverde mountains to the shore of Lake Arenal which we will be riding alongside for a few kilometers until we finish our tour at the slopes of the Arenal Volcano. Here we will celebrate the news year eve in a special dinner!
After the celebration we have our second day off in La Fortuna de San Carlos, another destination with lots of activities to choose from.
And with the recharged energies we face the last two bike tours. The first of them descending from the Central Volcanic Cordillera of Costa Rica to the Caribbean plains with its extensive jungles and varied cultivation areas. A
Our bicycle tours will end with a mainly flat coastal route, where we finally reach the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and we can cool off on the spectacular Manzanillo beach, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in this country.
One last night of celebration and half a day more on the beach before taking our transport back to San José, where we will take the respective flights to our places of origin.
