PLACE/ ACTIVITY

DESCRIPTION

1

MANUEL ANTONIO

(Flight to Quepos)

The day starts with a 25-minute flight to Quepos, a fishing village on the Pacific coast. Here you can visit Manuel Antonio National Park, which is famous for its beautiful beaches and abundant wildlife. We spend the afternoon discussing the details of our adventure and tending to any necessary prep-work. (B, D)

2

PACIFIC SIDE

(Mountain Biking and Trekking)

THE ADVENTURE BEGINS... We wake at the crack of dawn and enjoy a light buffet of fresh fruit and coffee. Mountain biking is our first sport as we leave Manuel Antonio and climb into the steep mountains and beautiful valleys of the sparsely populated Pacific Coast. In the small town of Esquipulas we have a hearty breakfast, rest up and prepare our packs for the next leg of the day's journey. Trading our wheels for hiking boots, we continue by trekking into the cool mountains of Central Costa Rica. We camp overnight in the midst of endless mountain ranges. (B, L, D)

3

LOS SANTOS

(Trekking)

On this day our adventure continues by trekking towards the Continental Divide by challenging the infamous "Cemetery Hill" - a strenuous 3-kilometer bike climb up a steep, winding pass. We spend the night in a gorgeous valley, making camp next to a trapiche (traditional sugar cane processing house). (B, L, D)

4

LOS SANTOS (Hiking and Mountain Biking)

The small pueblo of San Lorenzo is our morning destination where, after a few hours of hiking, we switch back to pedal power – mountain biking. We finish the day in the quaint village of Santa María where we tend to our sore feet, refortify with some typical Costa Rican fare and rest up in comfortable local cabins for the following day. (B, L, D)

5

CONTINENTAL DIVIDE

(Mountain Biking)

The hardest, steepest climb of our adventure begins on this day at the refreshing hour of 5.00 a.m. The challenge before breakfast is mountain biking a 14-kilometer up-hill stretch to the Continental Divide, bringing us to an altitude of 2330 meters - the highest peak in our journey. Following the rule that everything that goes up must come down, the remainder of the day is mountain biking at its best - mostly downhill on dirt roads and single-track trails. We finish the afternoon in the beautiful Orosi Valley where rich pastures and dark green forests of coffee carpet the land and we and our bike rest for the night in mountain top cabins. (B, L, D)

6

OROSI VALLEY

(Return to SJO)

After a lazy morning and some time to explore the beautiful valley of Orosi we begin our drive back to San José. (B)
