We didn't do any tours with Bike Arenal but did use their transportation service. They were the only company to respond quickly and informatively to our inquiries. After spending seven hours on an overnight flight it was a pleasure to step off the plane at 6:30am for a relaxing three hour drive to our destination. We booked three pre-arrange private... More

I rented a mountain bike for one day and was disappointed. The rate was 25 dollars for the whole day. Although there were new bikes in the room they gave me an old one designed for a person with 170 cm height (I'm 185 cm tall) telling me the other bikes had to be fixed. The old bike didn't run...

We had such a great day riding w Bike Arenal. We went during the slow season and had a private tour. Juan Carlos and Diego from the company were great and professional. They picked us up from our hotel in a nice company van with plenty of seats and the bikes on the top of the van. Our bikes were... More

I did not plan to do a bike tour while visiting Costa Rica. My girlfriend was spending an afternoon at the spa and I decided to find an activity to do that afternoon. Being an avid biker, I looked into bike tours in the La Fortunate area. I am very happy I picked Bike Arenal for my bike tour. First... More

On short notice, I was able to arrange a four hour country/mountain bike tour starting in La Fortuna. My guide and owner, Alejandro, had expert knowledge not only of the culture and geography of the San Carlos region, but also had helpful safety tips for the region. As an experienced mountain bike rider a little out of shape, he helped... More

I've never before imagined signing up for a bike tour...I think of myself as an accomplished, independent traveler. But, while in Arenal, planning for the next portion of my trip, I happened upon a brochure describing a 'multi-day bike tour'. So I emailed, and on less than 12 hours notice, during the height of the tourist season, this flexible, responsive,... More

Bike Arenal is the best. They helped me overcome my fears to have a great biking experience I will never forget. I am an avid road biker who searched for any information about cycling in Costa Rica (CR). Little was on the web about road cycling and what I could find were multi day road bike trips for super extremes.... More
