This action-packed adventure is led by Racho and Santiago. They are experienced tourers and knowledgeable guides in this country,
Fluent in both Spanish and English, they are not only experts on the bikes, they also have an enormous familiarity and ease with local customs and regulations, a key factor for any succesful adventure tour. A couple of bikes, the guides' knowledge, openness, and energy, and your hands on the DR's, and KLR's, is all you need to tour the beautiful and safe Costa Rican natural treasures populated with eager and welcoming locals.


Day 1
Arrive at Juan Santamaria Airport at your convenience and transfer to your comfortable "Best Western" hotel in downtown San Jose. If your arrival is early enough, we will have a pre tour meeting in a popular restaurant in downtown San Jose called "Antojitos Cancun". There we will get to know one another over a few drinks and discuss any details of the upcoming week.

Day 2
The group meets in the hotel lobby at 8 in the morning to go checkout the bikes. Here we will have the opportunity to meet the rest of the group. After a complete breakfast, we will have an orientation briefing which includes an introduction to the country, its culture, and the laws that concern us. We will introduce the company, its mission, and its vision. Then we will give a complete briefing of the motorcycles, we will describe their features and characteristics, and then we will give specifics on the riding terrain and explain how the trip will operate.
Before noon, we will leave the region of San Jose going west towards the Pacific Ocean. We will travel on an unpaved road across the mountains that divide San Jose from the Pacific Ocean. After a few hours, we will reach the spectacular national park of "Manuel Antonio" where we will spend the night on beautiful cabins near the park. At night we may go to the beach or to the different night clubs the town offers for dinner and a light party.

Day 3
We will rise early to find a nutritious breakfast of omelletes, exotic fruits and the world famous Costa Rican coffee. Each member of the group will choose between different activities such as trekking the natural park and discovering its wildlife and shores, canopying in the rainforest, beach activities, and enduro riding around the area. We will then get together and travel south to Dominical through a Rally Style terrain. There we will have lunch on the beach while enjoying one of the world's surfing paradise. We may also play volleyball here depending on time. Then we will head south towards Playa Tortuga, or Turtle Beach. It is one of the most biologically diverse regions on earth. We will arrive in the evening, have a light dinner and a bonfire on the beach before going to sleep in the breathtaking cabins next to the ocean.

Day 4
In the morning we will have breakfast and then we will separate into separate groups to do some of the activities offered in this region which range from sportfishing, sea kayaking, diving and snorkeling to hiking, horseback riding, ultralight flights and more. After enjoying this paradise we will have lunch and head south towards Pavones. When we get there we will organize ourselves in the bungalows and go down to the "Cantina" for a few drinks and dinner. We may organize a bonfire on the beach depending on the time and mood.

Day 5
Today you could relax a bit or continue with a variety of high energy level activities. We will spend the whole day in Pavones, since this is such a unique place, and one of the world’s best surfing spots. It is located in a very rural area with just the basic needs available.
Again, we rise early to enjoy breakfast and then you can choose between enduro riding through the southwestern most point of Costa Rica visitng Indigenous Tribes, or stay behind and surf the world's longest break or relax on the quiet beach.
The enduro terrain will be somewhat more demanding than the previous ones. A group of local experienced riders will guide us through the terrain.
In the afternoon we will all meet back at the "Cantina" where we can organize a soccer game against locals on the beach. Then we will have dinner and a relaxed night at the beach.

Day 6
In the morning we will wake up early, have breakfast and depart to "Puerto Jimenez" which is on the well-known "Peninsula de Osa" on the other side of the Gulf. Once we get to Puerto Jimenez, we will do some off road riding to "Matapalo". Then we will install our belongings in the remote, jungle-like cabins where we will stay. Those of us who want to continue riding will continue to Carate. There we can go to the national park and to the Ocean for a swim. Then we will head back to the cabins, have dinner and maybe then head out to town for beer and reggae dancing before calling it a night.

Day 7
The next morning we will wake up early for a ride with some Costa Rican enduro league riders as guides. They will show us the best terrain of the area with time to marvel at the sights and scenery that you would never see on a regular tour. Another group may go sailing a Trimaran and fishing with Captain Wilfred. We will enjoy this unique place for the whole day, as we ride through the rainforest at the southernmost point of the "Peninsula de Osa". At night we will let our enduro guides organize us a special, local-flavored night on the beach.

Day 8
In the morning we will enjoy a typical breakfast with some of the fruits unique to this area. After a quick swim in the ocean, we will grab our bikes and head North on the Peninsula towards San Isidro. It is a 4 to 5 hour ride. We will stop for lunch on the way. Then we'll stay the night in San Isidro where we are going to spend the night on some cabins on a spectacular, biological friendly area. We may go to town for a Mini Pool tournament depending on time.

Day 9
This day we will travel on a variety of terrains, some being demanding. This day we will return to the "Best Western" hotel in downtown San Jose. We will arrive in the evening, return the bikes, enjoy an hour of Open Bar in the Best Western Hotel and have a farewell meal/party before we retire to our hotel.
