The little country of Costa Rica, roughly the size of West Virginia, has an incredible diversity of flora and fauna and there is a great deal to explore here; from active volcanoes to palm-fringed beaches. Twelve percent of the land has been set aside as national reserves to protect the astonishing number of plants, birds, reptiles, insects and mammals. Costa Rica is a tranquil haven of democracy in Central America. It has no army, excellent hospitals, well-educated people and a great respect for human rights. Ticos, as the Costa Ricans are known, are a friendly, helpful and tolerant people. They favor moderation, and therefore have managed to avoid the political fanaticism of their neighbors.
On this ride you explore the less traveled Caribbean side of the country, surrounding the laid back and vibrant small town of Puerto Viejo with its unique Creole culture, brought about by its Afro-Caribbean heritage. Here you have the opportunity for both jungle and beach riding in Costa Rica. The lovely accommodations offer tranquility in the midst of the tropical jungle and at the end of the day you will fall asleep listening to the soothing sounds of the waves coming ashore and the tropical birds singing their beautiful songs.
