All about this motorcycle adventure in Costa Rica

Other Need-to-Know Information about Costa Rica

Costa Rica is an amazing destination for nature travel and ecotourism. While only being a tiny percentage of the world’s landmass, it holds approximately 5% of the entire world’s plant and animal life! On top of that, nearly a quarter of the country’s land is protected as national parks or nature reserves. Your Costa Rica motorcycle adventure will give you the option to see some of those areas, as well as mountains, volcanos, and beaches. Along the way, you might see an awesome array of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, toucans, macaws, other parrots, butterflies, or even wild cats, like jaguars! Imagine making your way down a jungle path on the back of your dual-sport bike while hearing, or hopefully seeing, all these animals around you.

The geography of Costa Rica is no less diverse. The capital of San Jose, your likely arrival location (assuming you arrive by plane) is in the center of the country. Juan Santamaria International Airport is serviced by numerous major airlines and has regular direct flights to cities across the United States, European Union, and South America. Most visitors can stay for up to 90 days without a visa, but make sure you have all required and recommend vaccinations. From San Jose, you can easily reach the beautiful beaches of both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, the sparsely populated plains region to the north where you’ll find the Arenal volcano and nearby hot springs and volcanic lakes, or the dry forest parks of Guanacaste where it rarely rains.

The climate of Costa Rica will be tropical year round, but there are numerous micro-climates throughout the country. It is generally split into the wet season and the dry season. The rainy season lasts from May through November and it can rain nearly constantly in some areas. The dry season would be the recommended travel season for any Costa Rica motorcycle tours, and it lasts from December through April.
