  • Description

    This challenge has it all! From the colonial town of Granada in Nicaragua we cycle in the shadow of the Mombacho Volcano to the coast.

    The next day we cross into Costa Rica and cycle along a section of the famous Pan-Americana and from there we cycle south along the Tempisque river and through the Guanacaste and Santa Rosa National Parks. We end the challenge at one of Costa Ricas most iconic attractions, the magnificent Arenal volcano.

    After five days of cycling, we transfer to San Jose airport for our return flights or onward travels.
