Costa Rica Biking Tours
The Costa Rican landscape is crisscrossed by trails that run through pastures, jungles and mountains in one of the world’s most spectacularly diverse environments. Not surprisingly, the country is quickly becoming a hot spot for mountain biking. Mountain bike tours offer visitors an exciting way of seeing the country as it whizzes past — some navigate the base of the fuming Arenal Volcano while others plunge into the dense forests of Manuel Antonio, taking riders to some of the finest destinations in the country. Readily available at all skill levels, these tours are often packaged with other action sports, such as rafting or kayaking, and frequently include overnight trips to several destinations.
