The next day your bikes will be waiting for you to start this amazing, unforgettable journey

We leave San Jose for the Inter-American Highway, crossing the provinces of San Jose and Cartago to the Pacific Beaches, then up to the Nicoya Peninsula, famous for being one of the five blue zones of the world. We finish in the Tilaran Mountain Range to enjoy the hot springs of the Arenal Volcano.

Costa Rica is a diverse, unique country. It is known for its stable democracy and for for having abolished the army since 1948. It is a country of friendly and hospitable people who will welcome you for this story to share for a lifetime. We invite you to get to know it, to discover it, to live it, and to find out by yourself what the PURA VIDA is about. The best way to get to know a culture is on a GS BMW motorcycle. On this particular trip, we will follow a full, on-road route packed withunforgettable adventures and landscapes.
