Panama, the land between oceans

Panama, the land between oceans

Panama is the youngest of the Central American nations. It became an independent nation in 1903 after struggling a lot against the odds. Located between Costa Rica and Colombia, the geographic position of the country makes it of great interest to the world.
A single strip of land won’t allow both Ocean Atlantic and Pacific to merge together. A beautiful land with thriving wildlife and friendly people. Still, humans needed to connect both water bodies for commercial and transport reasons. Because of this, this land now become the host of one of the most brilliant architectural achievements of the human race: The Panama Canal.
But Panama today remains the wild land that it was in the past and it is up to you to come and discover it with our Panama tour on your bike.

Other details about Country

There is plenty of info about Panama’s nature around the Internet. So, it could be better to speak about some less know details about the country.
For example, when it comes to sports, Panamanians are huge fans of baseball. Worthy to watch is any match between the biggest clubs in the country. Crowds attend these matches to support their team of preference. Soccer or football is just behind baseball but it is getting more popular as their national team has qualified for the World Cup.
Also, Panama is modernity, with Panama City being the vibrant home of more than one million people. Huge buildings, big malls, museums, parks, and populous neighborhoods with restaurants and cafes are just part of the array of appeals.
Other important cities are Chitra, Santiago, Colon, and David, every one of them being unique. Different tourist services are offered around these cities.
You can still find colonial architecture all around the country. For example, in Portobelo, many colonial forts and buildings remain there, visited by those interested in the rich story of Panama.

Is Panama Safe?

Panama’s political and social stability has improved a lot in the last 20 years. The country is safe if you follow the basic recommendations:
Travel light, only with the necessary stuff.
Use apps to look for transport.
Avoid suspicious people in the street offering “services”.
You can visit restaurants and bars at night but check the reviews and avoid low-reputation sites.
Always keep your belongings in your pockets when out, do not let them on the table or any other surface.
Avoid crowds in small places, perfect for pickpocketers.
If you plan to drink alcoholic drinks, try to be in a safe place, for example, your hotel room. If you are outside, just do not get drunk.
With these basic topics covered, you can travel to Panama safely. There are no such things as terrorist attacks or dissident militias here. The country is safe too for motorcycle riders.
Only friendly people.

When to visit Panama?

The region is inside the tropics, so expect only two seasons. From December to April the summer season keeps the jungle dry and the beaches sunny. The rains visit the country during the green season. This is between, May and November.
Still, the green season is an excellent time to look for offers and lower prices in hotels and other services.
Also, the jungle looks more vibrant in the green season, with trees and plants blooming. You can still enjoy sunny mornings, sometimes rain won’t appear for days.
The green season is preferred by many species of animals to mate. These animals become way less shy, driven by the need for pairing. So, nature lovers will have more probability of taking some good pictures of the Panamanian jungle fauna.
In the summer season, the Panamanians celebrate fairs and bull riding championships all around the country. The fairs are accompanied by food stalls, rides, contests, and other amenities.
So, no matter what season you choose to visit the country, there is fun guaranteed.
Our Panama Tour is ready to take you to the most interesting known, and not well-known places. The best way to explore Panama is on a motorbike.

Nicaragua central america

Nicaragua, the land of the elements

plains and volcanoes of nicaragua with a motorbike

Water, fire, and land uniquely combine in Nicaragua. Volcanoes, lakes, rivers, and beaches are part of the Nicaraguan landscape. This is combined with the colonial-style cities full of friendly people and delicious food.
After years of war in the XX century, the country is healing and it is ready to receive curious travelers with open arms.
Get ready to visit the greatest lake, the most active volcanoes, and the most exuberant jungles in Central America.


The Pacific Area

Nicaragua is comprised of 3 important geographical areas. In the Pacific area, located in the west you can find the mountain range that is mostly formed by volcanoes.
Most of these volcanoes are active right now and have a conic form.
Some of these are located inside Nicaragua Lake and Managua Lake, creating volcanic islands.
Among the most famous volcanoes known are Cerro Negro, used for extreme sports. And the Masaya Volcano, located just outside of the capital city and its crater is easily accessible.
To the west of the mountain range, there are the plains that meet with the pacific ocean. You can locate beautiful beaches like Jiquilillo or Montelimar.
The most populated cities of Nicaragua are located in this area, Managua, Leon, and Tipitapa. These cities keep many of the colonial-era buildings and some roads. Even some new infrastructure has been built with a colonial style.

The Central Area

In the center of the country, you can find the plains to the south and the mountain range to the north. In these mountains are formed the rivers that flow into the Caribbean area. The plains are used for farms and cattle breeding.
In the northern area, there are important valleys that are used for farming too. Important cities are located here, with industry, tourism, and agriculture as the main sources of income. We can speak about Esteli, Matagalpa and Jinotega.
National parks thrive here as the mountain area is a refuge for many species of animals and plants. Also, waterfalls are not scarce and there are some small lakes, like Apanas Lake or El Dorado Lake.

The Caribbean Area

The Caribbean is the less developed area in Nicaragua. Dense jungles, mangroves, and other types of wetlands are all over the area.
Few cities are located here because the only source of income is tourism and fishing. Many protected areas are quite unexplored yet and it is attractive to researchers and scientists hoping to find new species of animals or plants.
The most important city in this area is Bluefields, the typical Caribbean town with small streets and friendly people. People here speak Creole, a dialect of English. If you are a fan of Caribbean culture, Bluefields is a must. Bluewater beaches are everywhere, perfect for those that enjoy bathing.
Fans of fishing and snorkeling have their place on Corn Island, an exotic Caribbean island accessible from town by boat or by plane.

Nicaragua is hot. Since Nicaragua is mainly plain and there are not very high mountain ranges, you’ll find very few places where the temperature is cold. In the northern regions, you can find temperate weather, mostly in the winter season.
Do not worry, plenty of rivers, lakes, and beaches to take a bath awaits you in this Central American country. You can cold down a bit and take a delicious natural bath.
Nicaragua has only two seasons: summer, when rains are scarce, and the rainy season when rainfall is abundant.
This rainy season is weaker in the Pacific area, you can have sunny days during it. The rainy(green) season can be good to visit the country since you can have access to many cuts in hotel costs.


Is Nicaragua Safe?

a motorcycle rest near a colonial building and church

Nicaragua is a relatively safe country. The risk of terrorism or riots is low.
Earthquakes are part of the history of the country but it is not like they happen every year. We can count that Nicaragua had important earthquakes or violent volcanic every 20-30 years.
Volcanoes are part of the charm of the country and it is a unique experience to visit them. Just have in mind that this kind of tourism has a degree of risk.
When it comes to human behavior we highly recommend being cautious. Mostly in the cities, thefts, pickpockets, and scammers can be a threat. Do not be overconfident, always ask for a price beforehand and ask locals about prices and places to avoid.
When it comes to transport, the best advice is: Do not be cheap!! Do not put yourself in danger by using cheap boat transport or a vehicle you can clearly see it had better days. Be sure the boat has lifejackets or the taxi has seatbelts. Try to use phone apps to call your transport to different places.
Go Home early, Nicaragua has plenty to offer during daylight. Try to be at your hotel at 8 – 9 o’clock at most.
If you can visit Nicaragua with a guide, it is a much better option because the guide knows the right people to trust and the right places to visit. Remember we offer you a Motorcycle tour to Nicaragua!

Is Nicaragua worth to visit?

Active Volcanoes, lovely lakes, beautiful planes, amazing rivers!! Do you love nature and landscapes? Nicaragua is the answer. Just do things in a smart way, rent with us a tour, and go with our trained guide. He knows!!
Reserve your tour to Nicaragua now!!


Our KTM Motorcycles

Our KTM Motorcycles

Surprisingly, some years ago when KTM was mentioned to anyone outside of Europe, motorbikes were not the first thing that comes to people’s minds.
Despite being on the European market since 1950, the company took its time to become the brand of motorbikes known all around the word that is now.


The background of KTM motorcycle

The first years

This dream started back in Austria in 1934 when Hans Trunkenpolz, an Austrian engineer, founded Kraftfahrzeug Trunkenpolz Mattighofen in Mattighofen, Austria.
Back then it was a repair shop and dealer for motorcycles and cars.
During the second world war, the repair shop survived thanks to motor repair. It was just after the war ended that Hans had the idea of producing his own bikes. In 1951 the first prototype was constructed, and in 1953, with 20 employees, there was a production of 3 bikes per day.
The first KTM “motorcycles”, or scooters, were not using an in-house engine yet. And these were only for daily use in the city.
It took until 1957 to see the first KTM sport motorcycle. It was thanks to the investment of a new entrepreneur, Ernst Kronkeif, who renamed the company “Kronreif & Trunkenpolz Mattighofen”.
Back then the company was not only building motorcycles but bikes and scooters too. In the coming years, the company went through a series of good and bad moments. They had to leave the scooter and the bike production.Even, they went into bankruptcy in the 90s.


Since 1990

The company was split into four divisions, but one of those divisions was doing very well in the business. This division bought the motorcycle division and the good sales allowed the company, now KTM AG, to export offroad and racing motorbikes all around the world. With highly competitive prices and an efficient distribution system of spare parts.
This success is also present in the sports racing field, where KTM stands out in many competitions as the Super Enduro and Super Cross world championships and the Dakar Rally.

KTM Costa Rica

KTM was just introduced some years ago and became rapidly one of the favorites of the locals. These motorcycles just got adapted very well to the combination of highways, city roads, and rural roads in the country. Also, the low combustible consumption is a good point of sale for many costa ricans. The “bichilla”, the way Ticos affectionately call their KTM motorcycles, has become part of the daily landscape of the country.

KTM Pura Vida Motorbike

Customers, guides, and lessees, all of them agree that KTM did the job to tame Costa Rica’s roads, and it was done well. More mileage per liter of fuel, nice on highways and offroad, very comfortable on long trips and you can easily attach your luggage.
KTM was made for Central America. It was a long road to come here but we are sure these bikes are not going anywhere else, they came to stay here and help you to travel through these wild lands.

Tortuguero, Limon

Tortuguero, Limon

Located in a land of contrast, Tortuguero is an uncommon place in Costa Rica. Surrounded by wetlands, rivers, and the Caribbean Sea, this area is still a mystery for both locals and foreigners. Because of the swamps and marshes, it is really hard to find suitable land suitable for sustainable human living. Scientists believe there are a lot of flora and fauna species to be discovered yet in Tortuguero.
Also, the government declared most of the zone as a protected area, with one national park, Tortuguero, and a natural reserve, Barra del Colorado. This makes it almost no possible to build anything around the area without passing a huge list of requisites the government asks in order to keep the area from contamination.
Suerte and Colorado river divides into dozens of canals some kilometers inland. These canals go from north to south, east to west, and they are the main “roads” there. Hundreds of boats travel around all day and replace the buses, trucks, and cars as the main source of moving around between the few villages and hotels.


Reasons to visit Tortuguero

Sounds troublesome… Why go there? Because Tortuguero is not only unique in Costa Rica but around the world!! Thousands of birds, mammals, lizards, and amphibians make their home there. This is why countries like Canada and Spain have scientific stations placed at some strategic points. 
Take your camera and take a photo tour where an expert in the area will take you on a quiet trip around the canals and you’ll see iguanas, crocodiles, basilisks (lizards), turtle rivers, and frogs of all kinds, toucans, and hawks, etc. If you are “lucky” enough maybe a black panther or a jaguar. 
This is just a glimpse of what you can find in the marshes and mangroves. Then here comes the beautiful beaches, the favorite nest place of sea turtles!!


Sustainable Ecotourism

Carey and Baula turtles love these Costa Rica beaches to spawn their eggs. Both turtle species were in real danger and people then dug up the eggs for selling them in restaurants. Turtle eggs are considered a delicacy still today. 
Then the government has two issues to solve here, protect the turtles and the flora and fauna of Tortuguero, and give the locals ways to gain an income.  
Since then, some permits were given to build hotels around to create jobs. The Tortuguero National Park was created and local guides can take tourists to watch the turtles nesting with the right equipment and methods to not disturb them. 
Fishing is still allowed both in rivers and the sea but it is monitored by the authorities.  
Tortuguero is an example to the world that it is possible for a sustainable way of living for humans that is compatible with the conservation of the animals and plants we share this world with.



We share with you some photos of Tortuguero. It is solely a glimpse of all the things you can see there.

Puerto Viejo Limon

Puerto Viejo, Talamanca

Between the Caribbean Sea and the Limón jungle is a town that exudes happiness and relaxation. This town is called Puerto Viejo and is located forty-eight kilometers southeast of Limón. Puerto Viejo is part of the Talamanca canton and is just some kilometers away from the Cahuita National Park. This small city does not lack anything, it has all kinds of services and is close to everything from the beach to the forest to the reefs to surfing and people.

For those looking for beautiful beaches to dive, swim, or surf, this town has an enviable location. But if you are a fan of hiking in exuberant mountainous jungles, Puerto Viejo has the best places around. Parks with trails to go into the forest and observe all kinds of plants and animals.


Beaches, surf and diving

“Salsa Brava” meaning something like “mad sauce” is the name of the beach that local and foreign surfers visit for its high and heavy waves. Not recommended for beginners, Salsa Brava has a reputation for making surfers sometimes doubtful of getting in the water. A coral reef break could be dangerous if surfers are not careful enough.
Even if you are not into surfing, watching daredevils while eating at the beach restaurant is worth it.
For divers, the Cahuita National park counts with a beautiful 600-acre coral reef. Sadly climate change has reduced the coral reef. So, if you are planning to postpone your travel to Costa Rica to visit the reef, well, maybe you should do it now before this wonder of nature is gone.
For casual swimmers, kids, and beach lovers, Puerto Viejo is really close to the best beaches in the country. You have plenty to choose from, Conchal with his white sand and rough but funny to play with waves to Manzanillo where waves are almost no present.
Manzanillo feels like a huge pool. But talking about unique beaches, Playa Negra, which is just some meters away from downtown has the property of having black sands.



If you are more into relaxing activities like just walking and exploring around, you can visit the Cahuita National Park. It has a main trail that takes you to the reef then you can walk pleasantly on the Puerto Vargas beach. After walking for a while, you meet the trail back to the second entrance.
Same for Manzanillo-Gandoca Natural Refuge. With its untouched beaches, it becomes the perfect place to feel like an explorer visiting the “new world”.
Also, you can just go to Bribri, a town just by foot, bicycle or car. Then take the trails to the waterfalls. There are different waterfalls near the village so it would be wise to ask locals which are the best to go according to your physical condition. You can ask for a pond to take a dive in too, plenty of them.
Almost no road around Puerto Viejo isn’t paved yet. While some people would see this as a negative trait, for most is the best way to give rustic vibes to the zone. You can take any of those roads by foot or bike and you’ll find yourself inside the forest very fast.
Many animals and birds lurk around these roads, big trees, and all kinds of stuff you cannot see in the city.



Puerto Viejo can be crowded sometimes. It can be very quiet too. Most people go by around town on bikes or on foot. So, even if there are a lot of people around you won’t hear loud cars or trucks.
You will only hear the music of the bars and restaurants and the chatting of others with the background of the waves hitting Playa Negra beach.
Downtown is lively at night with people dancing in the bars near the beach, live music, and people walking on the streets. Some of them hit the beach for intimate talking and to watch the moon before going to sleep.
Hotels and cabins are outside downtown, so do not get worried about the noise of downtown taking valuable sleep hours from you.


Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is simply the best hot spot to visit on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. It has beaches with strong waves for experienced surfers. Beaches with almost no waves for swimmers and kids. Then plenty of natural attractions for hikers and explorers. The question here is not “why?” but “when?”. When are you going to visit Puerto Viejo with one of our tours or rent one of our motorcycles.


Montezuma Waterfall

The Montezuma Waterfall

The Montezuma Waterfall is located behind the town of the same name. The waterfall is the result of the plateau ending almost near the seashore. Literally, the waterfall is just some hundred meters from the beach. Although this, is not easy to access, you have to be a good physical condition.


Accessing the Waterfall

Before going into this topic, it is very important to mention that there is more than “one” waterfall. The waterfall itself is divided into different sections. The higher sections are really hard to access and you need really good physical condition. This is why the most popular waterfall is the bottom one, the easiest to access.
Also, do not go there if it is or was recently raining, check the weather conditions on the zone before visiting the Montezuma waterfall.


No matter the section you want to access, you need to dress appropriately. Hiking clothes and shoes are very recommended. Since there are ponds where you can swim, you can take swimming clothes with you in your backpack.
The entrance to the trail that will take you to the waterfall is just going west of downtown Montezuma. You’ll find a bridge and next to it is the entrance. There, a parking lot is located next to the entrance. Not bad considering that if you rented motorcycles you can leave them there for a small amount of money.
The trail is not pavemented and goes parallel to the Montezuma river. From the entrance to the Waterfall is like 1.5 kilometers. Despite the river offering some nice ponds, you should not get distracted, the best is yet to come.



Choose your destiny

As you get closer to the waterfall, you can see the trail splits in two. The trail that still goes alongside the river will take you to the lower waterfall. Since is the most popular the pond can be crowded, so maybe you would like to leave it for the last of the trip.
If you take the other trail, that will lead you to the upper waterfall. You still have quite a walk to get there, maybe 10 to 20 minutes and it is uphill. Do not get there if you don’t feel in good shape.
Then, after that extra walk, you’ll find the pond and the first waterfall. It is a small waterfall, around 3 meters high. It has some nice stones where you can sit while receiving the water on your back. From the edge of the pond, you can see the second waterfall with its own pond. Although maybe you can find some locals jumping to the second pond, it is not recommended by any means.
Once you finish here, you can go back to the lower waterfall. There, a nice pond to swim in awaits you, and if you are lucky, watch some locals and foreigners jumping to the pond. Some people jump from very high.


It is better to go back to the entrance at like 4:00 PM as there is still enough sunlight to see the path well. Be sure you won’t be driving a lot after visiting the waterfall, the trip could be exhausting. Do not forget your sunblock and take some snacks with you.


Royal Enfield Himalayan Costa Rica

Royal Enfield Himalayan

This time we are not going to speak about a place but our most recent motorbike: The Royal Enfield Himalayan is an Indian-made motorcycle fabricated by the Indian company Royal Enfield. This company has been in the business since 67 years ago. They were part of the Enfield Cycle Company, which was based in England.
Now they are part of another Indian automotive company called Eicher Motors Limited.


Royal Enfield has maintained for decades their classic design while keeping a very competitive price in the motorbike market. India does not have the best roads. Rural underdevelopment, wild weather, and irregular geography make India a country in need of sturdy motorcycles.


Hence the need of making motorcycles that can endure the hard roads and sometimes even the lack of them. This is also the reason that the Himalayan model is the best suited for off-road tours in Costa Rica. It is a motorcycle that gets the job done and it will take you anywhere in the country.



As we mentioned before, the Royal Enfield Himalayan has a very competitive price. This allows Pura Vida Motorbike to rent an efficient and accessible motorcycle for you to travel alone or inside our tours.
Do not hesitate to check the tours, let’s explore Costa Rica, the beaches, the volcanos, the roads, riding the Himalayan motorbike!!

San Jose, Costa Rica.

The most important city in Costa Rica

San Jose is the capital city of Costa Rica. The administrative buildings of the country are not located there but in Zapote. Despite this, everyone consider it the most wealthy and populated city in the country.


San Jose is also a very strategic point for the traveler. From here you can go everywhere in the country.
The Braulio Carrillo highway that goes to the most important seaport, Limon, starts in the northern limits of the city. The General Cañas highway, another important route that goes to the International airport, starts in the west limit. The same thing we can say about Florencio del Castillo highway, a very important route that connects San Jose with Cartago. Thus connecting the city with the southern part of the country.


This is why PVM has its operational base in this city. From here we rent our bikes and it is the main point to start our tours.
If the customer doesn’t want to go to San Jose when renting our motorbikes we take it to the airport. The airport is 20KM west of the city.


Is it worth visiting San Jose?

But before going somewhere else we think San Jose has some points of interest that are worth the visit. The capital is culturally rich, with at least 10 museums, historical buildings, and places.
The city counts with more than ten museums. Most of them have exhibitions of very important historic value pieces. Other museums exhibit contemporary art or natural history. We would like to expand more info about the best museums in another post soon.


To check out how people spend their free time in the capital, there is nothing better than visiting plazas. The Plaza de La Cultura and the Plaza de la Democracia are the best places to start. There are plenty of people sitting on the bench and they are just next to two very important historical buildings. This is another issue we will be expanding on in another post.


You can visit Mercado Central, where narrow passageways take you to stores selling goods Costa Rican people uses on their houses. The market also counts with plenty of restaurants or “Sodas”, the way locals call small restaurants serving local food including breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


The city surely has a lot to offer who those who are curious about Costa Rica customs and history. We will expand everything about San Jose in the next posts.
If you want to include San Jose in any of our tours you can write us or you can explore it by yourself after renting a motorcycle with us.


Sunrise at Punta Leona Beach, Costa Rica.

Punta Leona Puntarenas

Punta Leona, Puntarenas

Punta Leona is not well known as a tourist point, but there is where its magic resides. It is a special place for those who are looking for peace, the beach is very quiet with almost no waves at all. Since most of the Punta Leona area is a National Wildlife Refuge, you’ll see just a few buildings and they are away from the beach. The rest of the zone is a jungle with huge importance for animal investigation, mostly birds and animals that can be spotted by lucky visitors if they are quiet enough.
The forest is one of the few protected zones between the “transition area” a special area that is used to divide the dry tropical forest, typical from the northwest of the country, and the rain tropical forest that is common on the country’s south.

Sunrise at Punta Leona Beach, Costa Rica.

Enjoying the sunrise at Punta Leona Beach, Puntarenas, Costa Rica.

For animal lovers, the refuge counts with trails for safe travel inside the forest, with a good camera and being quiet as possible you can spot some mammals like monkeys, coatis(a cousin of the raccoon), and armadillos for a good photo. Among 330 species of exotic birds find their home in Punta Leona like toucans, quetzals, parrots, and hummingbirds.
There are guided tours to the refuge. Also, there are sport fishing tours, Punta Leona waters are rich in oxygen, something that attracts many species of big fishes like sailfish, the marlin, and the yellowfin tuna.
If you would like to visit Punta Leona check our South or Pura Vida Tour and do not hesitate to ask us any questions you have.


Dirt road on mountain Costa Rica

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 on 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.
