Magical roads on Costa Rica

Magical and mysterious roads on Costa Rica

Costa Rica is the country with the most paved roads in Central America. Most important towns are connected by roads in good conditions that allow smooth transit, important for transporting goods and services.

But still, the country has many undeveloped roads, well, that does not sound good unless you are in an off-road motorcycle, in that case, it sounds like an opportunity for adventure.
With the right vehicle, these roads become magical, that sensation of going into the unexplored, one has that feeling these ways were built just of a few chosen ones, taking us to an undiscovered or unknown for most people.

In Pura Vida Motorbike we count with the perfect bikes for riding in these routes. Also, our Off-Road tour is specialized in taking these kinds of roads to reach less known but equally beautiful destinies, beaches, national parks, small towns, waterfalls and other attractions which can be reached only through these routes.


Santa Teresa, a beautiful place

Santa Teresa, unique and beautiful


If you search in Google with the topic “The 10 most beautiful beaches on Central America” you will find in most lists that Santa Teresa is being featured in the first positions.
For the ones who have visited the beach, this is not a surprise, this place is not like a normal beach, there is something mystic around when you are watching the sun hiding in the Pacific Ocean, when you are sitting near the river mouth watching the flow of the freshwater into the sea, and the sound of the waves lulling you while you are sitting on the shade of a palm tree.

Also, the waves are smooth in the shore, nothing that could knock even a kid over so for those who like to bathe on the beach. For the surfers and swimmers, there are more challenging waves while you get farther from the shore. Even there the deep of the water is just as the average adult person’s waist.

Even so, the thing that makes Santa Teresa magical is the fact it makes anyone quite friendly, no matter where you come from, you have this sudden feeling of greeting everyone, smiling to strangers or say hi to people you have never see before. Even the coldest person becomes friendly, guess that warm feeling while watching the sunset can melt the iciest of the hearts.

If you are coming or you are already in Costa Rica, Santa Teresa is a must. Remember to pay a visit as soon as you can.
We share with you some photos, enjoy.

The roads of Costa Rica are all different, due to variations in altitude, to seismic zones. Most of the plain and mountain asphalt roads are new and are very pleasant to ride in more incredible scenery than the others.
The unpaved roads are also in very good condition and regularly maintained, we can meet some passages a little more difficult due to rainy seasons that dig ruts. The laws are relatively flexible, as long as we do not exceed the limits, there are no speed radars and roadside checks are infrequent.

Some Tips To Find Your Flight

From Europe, the cheapest flights are from Madrid and nothing prevents you from creating your own itinerary from your city. Obviously, we recommend flight comparators and online booking sites such as Momondo, Opodo, Edreams.
Much cheaper than physical tourism agencies and airlines. Prices on these sites may vary, only by playing on the change of a date of your trip. To avoid algorithms (automatic price reinforcement), we recommend that you search for your flight from the same ID address and finally, when you find an interesting flight, go into incognito mode (open Google Chrome, click on the three small dots above on the right and another click on New private navigation window) or change your ID address … Buying your plane ticket in advance is also a good alternative to overpriced flights. We recommend that you start looking as soon as you have your dates.
