Skedaddle Twaddle about Central America

See Costa Rica come to life

Like the sound of a cycling adventure but not too sure what you’ll encounter en route? Time to take a peek at our shiny, new adventure video captured by guide John Walsh during our latest Costa Rica tour:

Featuring coconut bowling, waterfall bathing and wildlife spotting too, it gives an amazing flavour of the exciting opportunities our long haul destinations have to offer. If you need more convincing, check out what a previous customer had to say…

‘The scenery was stunning and each day’s ride was different, from a series of climbs to long flat stretches crossing rivers, to beach rides and more. A great deal of credit was due to the excellent planning and attention to detail by John (our guide) and of course his team, who were all really willing to go that extra mile for us…’ David, Newcastle
