Cycling profile

Day 1

Those on the group flight land into San Jose and will be transferred to our
start hotel in La Garita, around 15 minutes away. Those on land only
arrangements should make their own way to the start hotel this evening.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 2

We have a briefing this morning and spend some time adjusting our bikes
before riding out through small rural communities followed by dry, tropical
forest with very little traffic on the paved roads. This initial stage
concludes outside Atenas, then we have a 20 minute transfer to a scenic lunch
stop. In the afternoon we’ll have a second cycling stage, passing mango
orchards and cattle ranches. Following another short half hour transfer we
arrive at our lodge for the night.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 3

Following an early breakfast, we transfer 20 minutes to Rio Tarcoles for a
private guided boat tour of the estuary. We hope to see crocodiles, water
birds, shore birds and Scarlet macaws. A 30 minute transfer brings us to the
outskirts of Jaco where we return to our bikes and cycle to the border of
Parrita. We will stop en route for lunch at the beach. From Parrita we ride
along a pristine Pacific beach, aiming to arrive in time for sunset. This
evening we will have dinner at a seafood restaurant with beautiful sea
views. 

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 4

We start the morning with a 2 hour guided hike in Manuel Antonio National
Park, an outstanding region for wildlife. The forest here meets the sea and
iguanas and White-headed Capuchin monkeys can often be seen on the beach. A
30 minute transfer takes us to Rio Savegre where we begin to cycle on the
Coastal Highway and continue all the way to Playa Tortuga. This is a
spectacular stretch of road, with dense forest and steep hills on the left
and fantastic Pacific views on the right.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 5

Our ride today takes us through Palmar Sur and onto Finca 6 where we will
stop to observe some of Costa Rica’s famous spherical rocks, made by
ancient indigenous cultures. The rocks were originally found in an area being
cleared to make way for banana plantations but the land has since been
delcared a protected area. From here we will transfer (approx. 1.5 hours) by
bus to the Osa Peninsula where we recommence our journey by bike, riding
along planted fields bordered by rainforest to Puerto Jiminez.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 6

Today has been left free to take a break from the saddle and enjoy the
beautiful region surrounding Puerto Jimenez. The coastline and beaches here
are lovely and there are plenty of optional excursions to choose from;
canopy/zip wire tours, kayaking, surfing, fishing, cacao plantation tour or
hiking within Corcovado National Park. There is also a nice bike ride out to
Playa Platanares if anyone wants to cycle (13km round trip).

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 7

We board a private boat this morning for a 30 minute journey across the Golfo
Dulce to Golfito. Here, sometimes dolphins can be seen frolicking in the
surrounding waters. Our cycle route heads to Rio Claro via a tropical garden
where we will learn about the medicinal properties of indigenous plants and
the history of the United Fruit Company in this region. Following a 1 hour
bus transfer across the steep mountains surrounding San Vito, we arrive at
Las Cruces Biological Station, our accommodation for the evening. Las Cruces
Biological Station is surrounded by the famous Wilson Botanical Gardens where
we will enjoy a short guided hike in the afternoon.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 8

Back on the saddle we enjoy a fantastic ride from the hilly region near San
Vito downhill to Paso Real, far below at the Rio Terraba. En route we pass
through an indigenous area where villagers can often be seen in traditional
dress. We board our bus for the 4 hour journey across the 3451m Cerro de la
Muerte pass, arriving at Savegre by mid-afternoon (we’ll take at least one
stop en route). Orosi Valley is spectacular and said to be one of the best
places in Costa Rica for spotting the shy quetzal. Our mountain lodge this
evening has excellent views of the surrounding region, including the coffee
growing Orosi Valley and both the Irazu and Turrialba volcanoes.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 9

We transfer 15 minutes to the lovely town of Orosi and then start our ride
past lush coffee plantations set on the rugged mountains which form the Orosi
Valley. During harvest season we will visit a coffee plantation to see how
coffee is grown, harvested and processed. The views today are incredible, as
we ride past Lake Cachi, visit the Cachi Dam and see Turrialba and Irazu
volcanoes.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 10

This morning we have a short transfer through busy Turrialba, the largest
town in this region, and then start a challenging ride through the remote
region along the lower and middle slopes of the Turrialba volcano, which
often emits smoke and ash. Concluding our biking, we transfer out to tiny La
Pavona, where we board a boat which will take us out to Tortuguero along
the wildlife rich rivers and canals used for transit in this densely
forested area. Our lodge has easy boat access to the beach where nesting
turtles come ashore to lay eggs (in season, July to October).

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 11

Today is spent at your leisure exploring the natural wonders of Tortuguero.
This area is rich in wildlife and it’s common to see monkeys, caiman,
iguanas, turtles, butterflies and many of the 309 bird species recorded here.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 12

We retrace our route by boat to the dock at Pavon where we transfer to just
outside Guapiles for an early lunch provided by our Tortuguero lodge, having
stopped along the way at a banana plantation for a short visit. After lunch
we head towards La Fortuna and the imposing Arenal volcano. Following a
massive explosion in 1968, Arenal was Costa Rica’s most active volcano until
recently when it entered a resting phase. En route we will take a break to
observe the thriving pineapple operations in this zone before continuing on
to our hotel, set in the centre of town. This evening there is an included
excursion to Eco-Termales hot springs, by far the best in the area.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 13

Our final cycling stage covers the lush region surrounding La Fortuna, as we
cycle past tropical farmlands where exotic fruits and vegetables grow in the
surrounding fields. This gives way to dense rainforest as we head towards
Bajo Rodriguez, our lunch stop. The last leg of our journey is completed by
bus as we transfer back to La Garita, travelling for around two hours with
tropical views on the way.

*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 14

Our trip ends in San Jose (La Garita) after breakfast this morning and those
on group flights will be transferred to the international airport for the
return journey.

This was an amazing experience. The cycling was moderate on mostly quiet,
smooth roads with some hills. The bikes were good quality Scott hybrids with
disc brakes. (Ours were brand new.)
The guided nature tours were fascinating and informative with local, expert
guides.
Our trip leader, Roberto, was excellent. Always helpful and very
knowledgeable with good English.
Our driver, Luis, was very safe and helpful.
I would love to do it all again.

Great wildlife!

Summary:
Great to see so much great wildlife on a cycling trip (it was the reason we
took the trip). Be prepared however if, like us, you are used to cycling
along quiet roads enjoying the views or witnessing folk going about their
lives whilst getting to know your fellow travellers. Half the cycling is on
busy roads (sometimes with little to see) cycling single file with your speed
being restricted by the lead guide. That being said, the stroll (not ‘hike’
as stated in the trip notes) in Antonio Manuel NP and the biological station
as well as the boat trips at both Rio Tarcoles and Tortuguero were great and
we saw SO many birds, insects, reptiles, amphibians and animals. The trip to
the medicinal garden provided us with one of the best meals of the trip and
so many unusual and beautiful plants. I was worried I wasn’t going to see a
sloth – we saw 7 (one on a fence on the side of the road we were cycling on).
The dips in the Pacific and the swimming pools during the first week were
also a particular highlight for me.

Rating: 4

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Seeing our first sloth in Antonio Manuel NP – he was awake and eating too!
Having 3 dolphins swim beside our boat in Tortuguero (very rare apparently!)
Our first swim in the Pacific, the waves were amazing and the water so warm!

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Good English, good wildlife knowledge but lacking in his interaction with us

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
– Take binoculars!!
– Take the BA direct flight and have an extra day (or more) at the end
– Ask the last hotel to order an Uber taxi if you need one, half the price!
– Take lots of Factor 50 for the first week!
– No mosquitoes at all until Tortuguero (then they bit thru clothing even!)
– Be prepared for hot days with hot nights then warm days with cold nights
then hot days with cool nights. More varied than I thought
– Avoid beans and rice when you can as there are occasions when you’ll have
no choice!

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
Zoo Ave near the final hotel was a nice surprise. Great to see up close some
of the birds and animals we’d seen thru binoculars during the week.

A brilliant cycle trip

Summary:
This excellent cycle journey offers wonderful diverse experiences from
coastline to mountains to rainforests with spectacular scenery and wildlife.
The cycling is challenging – some big hills, busy roads and very hot – but
great fun and our needs were very well catered for by our excellent guide
Andreas, and his team.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Hard to pick just one, but probably day 10 – Turrialba to Palomo, the final
mountain day, with a big climb, followed by a big descent that ended with a
very welcome and cooling dip in a river.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Andreas was an excellent guide; He kept us safe on the roads, with the help
of his team. He was efficient, organised and informative with a vast
knowledge of the history, ecology, fauna and flora of Costa Rica.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
To get the most out of the trip, a good level of fitness would be an
advantage – it’s hot and there are some big climbs. I hadn’t cycled for 4
months but managed all the hills, with some help on the last days climb when
I was pushed part of the way up by Andreas and our other cycle support,
Louis! There’s always the bus if you’ve had enough.

Also be aware that the roads are busy

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
This is a challenging trip and the account of the holiday on the Exodus
website does not prepare you for the hills or the busy traffic. A bit more
information would be helpful for customers, but that said, we thoroughly
enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely recommend it.

Costa Rica Coast to Coast Cycle Ride

recommend the trip highly enough. The cycling was fantastic, our tour guide
and support staff brilliant and the hotels we stayed in along the way
amazing.

harder than described in the trip notes!

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Wayne Maxwell

Summary:
We had a great trip and would recommend it highly. Our guide Roberto and his
team looked after us all extremely well and nothing was too much trouble.
Roberto was very organised and efficient and planned our trip with meticulous
care. He sorted out any unforeseen problems very quickly to enable the trip
to run smoothly and enjoyably. He was intuitive at predicting our needs in
advance.
We enjoyed the small friendly hotels we stayed in, mostly run and owed by
locals. We enjoyed the excursions to small family run concerns such as Frog
Heaven.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
We loved cycling along the Pacific Beach, our morning in Manuel Antonio
National Park, swimming in the Pacific on an isolated beach at Puerto Jimenez
followed by lunch at a Plantation type restaurant.
Waking up to Scarlet Macaws kissing on a branch outside our bedroom window on
the second morning.
Cycling the beautiful Orosi Valley.
Frog Heaven and taking the most amazing picture of a red eyed tree frog.
Eco-Termales Hot Springs was a fabulous end to a long day in the saddle.
Exciting boat trip in Tortuguero spotting all kinds of wildlife.
The light / sunshine, beautiful plants, colours, wildlife, tropical scenery.
The friendly helpful people we met along the way.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Could not have been better. Superb. We would highly recommend him and his
team. We would like to do another trip with him if possible.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
Lots of fly spray, watch out for lizards landing in your Gin and Tonic.
Always check the glass before you drink.
Check clothing before getting dressed – I was bitten on my bottom by a
harmless scorpion.
Factor 50 sun cream and re apply frequenly.

MUD: 2017-03

Summary:
Excellent trip. Very well planned in terms of route chosen and day-to-day
logistics. Staff were all great, helpful, friendly and professional.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
In a certain way, each day was inspirational. The biking segments were all
fun and at times challenging, but I thought the hilly bits added a personal
achievement component. Each day we were exposed to a new area and our leader
was very good at explaining to the group what we were to see an do.

Just to focus one moment, I was take aback by the spherical rocks on day 5.
It is mind blowing to try to understand how these perfect spheres could have
been carved and moved using primitive tools.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Andres Ramirez is a great leader. Throughout the trip Andres behaved in a
professional yet amicable way. He was always well organised and ready to
brief the group or deal with specific logistical issues that arose. Andres
knows and obviously enjoys talking about the costa rican wildlife, he was our
guide for the visit of the Manual Antonio Park and it was interesting to see
him interact with the other guides and tourists.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
I highly recommend this trip to anyone who is in shape. I would give a bit
of warning to potential travellers with regard to the hills. While they were
all manageable, some were indeed challenging. The trip notes made available
before the trip were rather discrete about hills. Potential travellers
should know clearly what they are getting into. couple of participants on
our trip were not able to handle these hills,

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
The detailed trip notes should have been sent to the travellers before the
trip, if not before booking, it is only by reading these notes, and assessing
the profile that one can assess whether this trip is for him/her. The notes
should also be identified by each specific day, this would help potential
travellers in preparing for the trip. In any case I found surprising to be
handed notes on one-side-use paper, we are after all in 2017 and one can
safely assume that participants would have preferred to have these notes
downloaded and readily available on their smart phone.

I would instruct the leader and key staff to tell the group in which room
they could be found in case of emergency.

Some of us had mold growing in our water bottles because of the heat and the
sugar in the Gatorade. I would warn cyclists to empty and rinse their bottle
every evening. That said, keep the Gatorade, it is needed when cycling in a
hot climate

Costa Rica Coast to Coast

Summary:
Almost everything about the trip was brilliant. Roberto and his team were
probably the best guides I have done any trip with. They were pasionate about
their country and went above and beyond to make our holiday as memorable as
possible. Our major hiccups were with transfers and this is an Exodus issue.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Cycling down the ridge from Las Cruces to Paso Real with mountains either
side. The guided tour of Rio Tarcoles Mangrove estuary was wonderful too.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Roberto was superb, knowledgable, helpful, humorous, sensitive, patient and
diverted any potential problems by clear explanations. His team followed his
lead. I cannot rate this group leader or his team highly enough.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
Do not book on this trip if you cannot cycle off road or amongst traffic or
are not fit or competent enough for the grade. I think the Exodus grading was
spot on but there were folks on our trip who struggled to meet the standard
and their behaviour put themselves and others at risk and put an awful
pressure on our guides.

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
There was dreadful confusion about transfers. We booked our holiday and
flights all through Exodus so you would assume that that would include
transfers either a free group transfer or an extra sum for the transfer.
Mercifully I checked up before we left and found out there was no transfer
arranged so arranged it for £30 for our group of 4. On arrival there were 9
of us on this transfer, every group whether a single, a couple or as with us
had paid £30 for a transfer that cost for 4 of us on the way back. As a
gatroup we had paid £120 for the transfer on the way out. That seems very
excessive.
With 9 of us(out of a total group size of 15) coming off the London Gatwick
flight on the way out and 9 going back to UK on this flight I do not know why
this was not the free included group transfer.

Activity Levels


Activity Levels range from Leisurely to Tough, the grading takes into account the daily cycling distances and terrain, as well as any technical riding skill required. We also consider the number of cycling days as there can be a cumulative affect from tiredness on a longer trip and the type of accommodation used, as this can also influence your day to day recovery.

If you are in any doubt, please give us a call on +353-1-607 9900 or email us.


Activity level 1 - Leisurely Activity level 1: Leisurely

If you can ride a bike and enjoy gentle exercise, these are an ideal introduction to a cycling holiday. No routes are entirely flat, so expect some short climbs and descents. Maximum daily height gain is approximately 250 metres and daily distances rarely exceed 50kms (32 miles), any longer days are often optional.


Activity level 3 - Moderate Activity level 3: Moderate

Most people who enjoy a weekend riding at home will enjoy a Moderate trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. Moderate off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances rarely exceed 70kms (43 miles) per day.


Activity level 5 - Challenging Activity level 5: Challenging

For any ride at this level, fitness is important. Challenging trips require confidence in your ability and physical condition. They are equivalent to an extended period of cycling at home. Previous mountain biking experience is essential for Challenging off road trips as they will involve some technical riding.


Activity level 7 - Tough Activity level 7: Tough

Previous experience of the cycling style or surface is a must as these routes have long cycling days and tougher terrain on both road and off road trips. You need complete confidence in your fitness and technical ability to cope with difficult or steep terrain, rough surfaces and longer distances. Ideal for those seeking a challenge!


Split grades

In order to provide more accuracy, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or ‘split’ grade, for example 2: Leisurely/Moderate.
