How can so many wonders fit into such a narrow sliver of land? That’s the question delighted cyclists ask when they explore Central America on a VBT bike tour. It may be surrounded by the Caribbean and the Pacific, but the region’s stunning coastal treasures make up a mere fraction of their beauty. Cloud forests, lush rainforests, wildlife refuges, smoldering volcanoes, and verdant coffee farms vie for your attention. Outdoor adventure is the key to living the fullest life here, and you’ll find plenty of kindred spirits eager to help you make the most of yours.
On a Central America bike tour, you’ll find yourself at the center of adventure … the center of culture … the center of paradise. Astonishing wildlife, soothing hot springs, splendid national parks and reserves, pristine lakes, colonial plazas, and rustic farms comprise one of the world’s most fertile and invigorating canvases. You’ll cycle through it all, following quiet, unspoiled routes through one of the world’s most bio-diverse regions, pedalling amidst the cool air of a cloud forest one day and the soothing warmth of a rainforest the next.
Adventure awaits off the bike, too. Gaze up the slopes of a slumbering volcano. Tour local farms where the tastiest strawberries bloom and the finest coffee beans are harvested. Glide through the forest canopy along a zip-line and raft along a lazy river as sloths loll in treetops and macaws take wing overhead. Central America provides the perfect stage for nature lovers and cyclists, a bounty of riches where intense beauty opens up before you at every turn.
And VBT’s Trip Leaders make sure you don’t miss a thing. They know this land intimately and will enrich your bicycle trip with their inside knowledge, from pointing out howler monkeys high in the treetops to pointing you to the best tamales in town.
Of course, you may be in the lush embrace of the unspoiled natural world, but the comforts and indulgences of deluxe lodgings are never far. VBT has hand-selected some of the best in the region. Unwind after a day of cycling at a thermal resort at the base of an iconic volcano. Even when the day is done, the magic of VBT’s Central America casts its spell.
