Costa Rica Bike Tour & AdventureCosta Rica
I also really like how the company tries to accomodate individual interests, how they patch together shuttle transportation so you're not part of a big Read More tour (which I don't like) but at most a small vanfull of people -- and not the same people. some of our activities were even private.
some recommendations: I would substitute the first mountain biking trip with white water rafting or a river boat trip. the hilly option was super hilly (and this is someone who bikes hill several times a week on a hybrid, not a mtn bike). The flat option did not seem that interesting. I would make sure to book a night time jungle tour at the Ara Ambigua Lodge. I would see about extending the trip a few days heading north up the coast, adding a Tour to Rincon de la Vieja, Volcan Tenorio and even a day trip to Granada, Nicaragua.
Three more things: be prepared for some windy chilly conditions. We couldn't believe we were 10 degrees north of the equator. Make sure to pack a windbreaker and be ready to layer up a bit for those higher terrain places, esp. at night. Also get your money from the ATM in the airport. It was not that easy finding ATMs elsewhere. All the ATMs we used offered dollars and colons. Most places accepted both. Also, plan to tip your drivers, guides, hotel cleaners, servers, etc. The internet says it's optional in CR, but these folks depend on gratuities to make a living.
Thanks again for such a great trip. We left eager to return.

The flawless itinerary was executed to perfection. All of the drivers and tour guides arrived right on time. We marveled at how fun and caring they all were.They added so much to the experience.

All details of the trip, including accommodations and transfers, were taken care of so that we didn’t have to worry about making those arrangements. The activities were so much fun and we enjoyed the variety. Learning to surf at our age was something I might not have tried had it not been one of the options provided. The people of Costa Rica were so welcoming and proud of their country, which added to the trip’s attractiveness. I would highly recommend this trip!

This was a fantastic tour! We had a great time and found our tour company to be helpful all along the way. They kept us informed of any delays or changes. I especially liked all the activities We were able to book some extra excursions on our own while travelling. The only thing I had a problem with was-- I was not prepared for the mountain biking . It was more strenuous that I anticipated. (I'm not a mountanin biker but I am a road bike person. ) But this was not the fault of the tour company. It was my lack of training. We did a Greyline Tour of the city in San Jose as an added excursion when we arrived in Costa Rica but I would not recommend it unless you're fluent in Spanish.

Since we booked during rainy season it rained a lot, which definitely made it memorable. We definitely stepped out of our comfort zone and absolutely had a blast. Our trip turned out to be private since my friend and I were the only people booked the week we went. We were on our own more than we anticipated put always felt safe. The transfers were always on time or early.
