Visit Central America and cycle among Costa Rica's rainforests and Panama's Caribbean islands

Central America's narrow isthmus lends itself perfectly to exploration on two wheels. Starting in the graceful colonial city of Granada and ending in bustling Panama City, our route takes us into Costa Rica's steamy cloud forests, alongside several active volcanoes and to the tropical island paradise of Bocas del Toro. We visit the island of Ometepe in Lake Nicaragua, search for the howler monkeys as we take a boat trip on the Tenorio River and take some time out for snorkelling on Panama's reefs. A ride along the impressive Panama Canal is included at the end of the trip - a great climax to an unusual and interesting itinerary.

  • Travel to Central America's beautiful and lively colonial cities
  • Experience rural life in the less visited parts of Nicaragua and Panama
