Reviews for Central America cycling holiday


review 15 Feb 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The surprisingly fast ride following the river rafting, up to 70kph, the scenery, the two islands that we spent 2 nights at each were lovely and to try something new the zip wires at La Fortuna (not mentioned in trip notes, but leader will book for you)

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Pack a dry t-shirt in your rucksack or leave on coach. When you have finished a riding stage and are soaking wet with perspiration (or rain), it is nice to have a dry top on if you are then going to have an hour or two coach transfer.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Roberto the leader and the 'bike boys' were great. Very helpful and so well organised, meals, room keys, boats, all appeared exactly on cue.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

As expected, another excellent trip. The pace was felt to be unexpectedly high but suited most of the group. The pace could be compared with a 'drop bars' trip and for most of the cycling could be done on a road bike. I 'survived' thanks to some pacing on some days and did enjoy it. I can do some hills at home now that I couldn't before ! The meals were very good, far better quality and lower priced than at home. The boat trips and ferry journeys added to the interest and my companions were great - all ages from 20 to 68 (me)
