With an increasingly large network of paved secondary roads and heightened awareness of cyclists, Costa Rica is emerging as one of Central America’s most comfortable cycle-touring destinations. That said, many roads are narrow, potholed and winding and there are no designated cycle lanes, so there’s an element of risk involved.

Mountain bikes and beach cruisers can be rented in towns with a significant tourist presence for US$10 to US$20 per day. A few companies organize bike tours around Costa Rica.
