I had the pleasure of talking for hours with Alejandro, the owner of the Bike Arenal and with one of his employee, so not only I rented a good mountain bike for one day to explore on my own the surroundings and the hot springs, they gave me plenty of information about the site, with tips and answering all my questions. And I was amazed by the love they put into their job: for once I found people truly interested in the customer's satisfaction more than earning money: more than pushing you to buy an expensive tour or anything, they listen to your needs and do their best to meet them.
Totally recommended, they rent bikes, offer tours or just transportation to the site with outstanding customer service!
Gracias por todo Alejandro!
Day 1: La Guardia was a hike a bike after which we biked to the public hot springs and soaked our sore bodies. Beautiful, hard ride right from the hotel
Day 2: Rio Celeste, supported ride, up and up and up through farms and jungle to end at the spectacular waterfall and river. Then a bomber downhill.
Day3: Don't miss the ride to Rio Chiquito on the west side of Lake Arenal. No traffic, spectacular scenery and a beautiful boat ride over the lake to 'finish' off the day.
Good bikes, great people.
I can recommend this tour and bike arenal to everyone who wants to make a biketour in this region. Alejandro and his Staff are very friendly and on the Tour to El Castillo, he explained also a little bit about the Volcano and the surrounding. About the ride: I think it's really possible to do for everyone who is a little bit sporty, so the road is mostly flat (but bumpy). If you're expecting a uphill/downhill-ride, you better go to the shop and to alejandro himself! He will give you the best pura-vida-bike experience in arenal area!
Highpoint of my trip!
Alejandro and company are all bike enthusiasts like myself that understand what a real bike tour should be. From high end bikes to exceptional customer service - this is the place to launch an Arenal trip.
I contacted them last minute, they were very accommodating with scheduling and so much fun I went out with them twice (and they sent me pictures/videos of my day before I was back to the hotel!).
Made me feel like I was with my riding friends at home. Great business and even better people.
