Mountain, Volcanic or Coastal Tours
We will start our adventure in Santa Ana at the World Cycle Center (Husqvarna-Motorcycles Enduro Tours Central Offices), from there we will ride South for about 2 hours through the breathtaking mountain scenery until we reach the town of Grifo Alto in Puriscal for a hydration break, then we will continue our journey until we reach a small town named Palmichal de Acosta, here we will be able to fuel up and have typical Costa Rican lunch to recharge batteries, this first portion of the tour is to get to know the motorcycle and the terrain, we will continue with our last portion of the ride to finish at Colinas Alta Vista Hotel in Aserrí where you can enjoy spectacular views of the city of San Jose and rest for the next day.
Everything that goes up must go down, that is exactly what we will do on our second day, we will start descending from the San Jose mountains towards the Cartago province, to ride amongst volcanos and to see the outstanding Orosí valley, a deep valley with humid climate, surrounded by hills, coffee plantations and lush vegetation, here we will take a lunch break before we continue going through the Tapantí National Park all the way to Turrialba where we will spend the night.
Time for Gallo Pinto! You will need all the energy from a full Costa Rican breakfast, we will head towards the very beautiful and very active Turrialba volcano, continue to the Irazú volcano and if desired you can access the National Park and look into the crater of El Coloso (The Colossus) then back down to Cartago to re-fuel, we will keep riding towards San Cristobal in Desamparados here we will have lunch and finish back in Aserrí.
All good things come to an end, this is the last day of the tour so we should make the most out of it, we will head back to Santa Ana going through Acosta and alto de Quitirrisí, if desired we can visit the Indian reservation to buy crafts, we will also ride by a large wind power farm on a top of a mountain that is quite a site.
