Northern Volcanoes and Beaches
Ride Ultimate Singletrack in Northern Costa Rica
Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Discover Costa Rica up close! This trip combines the incredible experience of singletrack riding on the slopes of the Miravalles and Rincón de la Vieja Volcanoes and Guanacaste Province. Along the way we will visit quaint rural towns, hidden waterfalls, hot springs, deserted beaches and the enchanting waters of the Northern Pacific Coast.
Day 1 - Arrival at Liberia Airport
We will be meeting you at the airport for your shuttle to our first hotel near Liberia. Tonight we will be getting to know each other and discussing the week’s activities. No riding today. Dinner is included.
Day 2 – Hacienda Guachipelin - Rincon de la Vieja Volcano
Today we ride like cowboys…Yes, the area around Guachipelín is cowboy country. But we ride our bikes on gentle slopes up and down sweet singletrack. After lunch we get to enjoy thermal pools and cool blue rivers inside the Hacienda or do optional activities like horseback riding or nature hikes to waterfalls. All meals included.
Day 3 – Bagaces
Today’s ride takes us into the Rincon de la Vieja National Park and includes singletrack and gravel roads as we make our way up and down the Continental Divide to our new destination near La Fortuna de Bagaces. All meals included.
Day 4 – Rio Perdido
Oh boy! Today we are in for a treat. The area around Bagaces has Costa Rica´s best singletrack. It is an arid terrain and the trails range from packed to rocky (but no baby heads like West Virginia). Our ride will be a 3 to 4 hour loop in the area in the morning then after lunch an optional world-class zipline ride in the Rio Perdido canyon, finishing in exquisite thermal pools to soothe our muscles (that and a beer or two as well). Our non-riding companions have the option of doing a tubing tour in the morning or enjoying the rivers of Rio Perdido. All meals included.
Day 5 – La Virgen Waterfall
First we ride a wonderful 4 hours of singletrack trail nicknamed "la Virgen" to a refreshing waterfall where we will have a picnic lunch. Then we load the bikes for our shuttle to Potrero Beach and the exquisite Las Catalinas Trails. All meals included.
Day 6 – Las Catalinas
We have saved the best for last! The Las Catalinas trail-system is Costa Rica´s best professionally built system. Over the course of the morning we will get to enjoy the 20 mile system with beautiful coastal views surrounded by tropical dry forest. Watch out for the monkeys! In the afternoon you get to enjoy the beach or optional watersports such as surfing or SUP. All meals included.
Day 7 – Depart from Liberia Airport
All good things must come to an end. We need to leave very early in order to be near the airport by mid-day. Breakfast included.
Starts at $1699 per person double occupancy. Airfare is not included.
