Cycle Costa Rica Coast to Coast

When: 1 - 10 November 2019

Where: Costa Rica

The route

Starting on the Pacific Coast at Playa del Coco, you'll cycle over 460 km over 7 days to reach the Boca del Pantano beach on the Caribbean Coast. This challenge isn't for the faint hearted and training is a must, but Costa Rica provides a stunning backdrop for this awesome adventure.

You'll ride through Costa Rican farmlands, bustling colonial cities, stunning mountain ranges, smouldering volcanoes and tropical Caribbean lowlands. Seeing the incredible vista of Lake Arenal with its volcano in the background on day 4 is a particular highlight for many, as well as catching a glimpse of the local wildlife (including sloths) throughout the trip.

Take on this tough challenge for the British Heart Foundation and your hard work will help fund our lifesaving research to beat the world's biggest killers.
