Central America and the Caribbean need little introduction to many, but for those seeking a more active way to experience the region’s turquoise waters and vibrant Latin American culture…we have just the thing! Take a look at our 3 inspiring journeys by bike below…
Where: Cuba | Trips: Cuban Wheels and Cuban Revolutions
Key experiences: Gliding past majestic limestone peaks in the epic Vale of Vinales (Cuban Revolutions only) and exploring the colourful town of Trinidad.
We say: The island’s iconic old cars and idyllic palm fringed beaches now maybe be recognisable worldwide, but our cycling holidays enable you to go beyond these popular tourist sights and explore the island’s lesser known rural hidden gems too!
Where: Costa Rica | Trip: Volcanes y Playas
Key experiences: Encounters with exotic wildlife en route and cycling around Lake Arenal, with views of its impressive volcano as your companion.
We say: Renowned as a haven for biodiversity; Costa Rica really is a feast for the soul. Few of our destinations boast such a bounty of natural wonders and each day offers plenty of unique experience that can only be found when exploring an area so untouched by the human world.
Escape (n): A form of temporary distraction from reality or routine.
