I have traveled the world on all type of vehicles but motorcycle rides remain my favorite ! I have now specialized myself into road-trips manufacturing... What I love the most…

Located in

From villages to volcanos in Costa Rica

Race through different cultures, climates and environments on these thrilling Costa Rica motorcycle tours.  We will start by riding across the Braulio Carrillo National Park, Costa Rica’s massive central rain forest, to reach the beautiful Caribbean Coast. From here, you cross the border to experience a short visit to Panama.

The adventure is just beginning however, because in Panama, we will visit Embera Indian Village, Chiriqui highlands and el Valle del Anton. Then we head back to Costa Rica riding through long golden beaches, tropical rainforest, volcanoes, nature and so much natural beauty that you are sure to have an unforgettable vacation.

Continuing on the main highway, we will ride to Manuel Antonio, which is considered to be Costa Rica’s most beautiful park. Remember this is also one of the Costa Rica off road motorcycle tours and we will hit some rocky terrain along the way. After the ride, nothing is better than cooling off on the enchanting white-sand beaches which are ideal for swimming, and tropical rainforest forests that are alive with wildlife. Make sure to keep an eye out too for the monkeys and iguanas who share the park with you.

Today we are back on the road for a couple hours. El Valle (Anton Valley) is famous for its market featuring handcrafts, fresh fruits, vegetables and beautiful native plants such as orchids and bougainvillea.

What makes the valley so special is that it emerged from an extinct huge volcano crater. The moderate and spring-like climate makes the valley an excellent summer resort. Also, besides being one of the bird watching hot spots of the country, the Anton Valley offers fascinating hiking possibilities, zip line tours through the cloud and rain forest and scenic rides on a horseback.

Known to produce some of the sweetest oranges and richest coffees in all of Panama, Boquete is quickly becoming a destination for those visitors seeking absolutely perfect temperate weather.
