We meet you at the airport, then we drive five minutes to our destiny which is a nice place in Heredia province. In here, three provinces form the Metropolitan Area, so, if you want (depending on time) we can offer you a "city tour" at the capital, a place involved in a lot of history, or just staying in our hotel getting ready for the coming days.
Tonight we have our first dinner together.
After a splendid breakfast at our hotel, we shuttle to the biggest county of the country; San Carlos, where we start our scenic bike ride by the true rural Costa Rica. We're heading towards Arenal Volcano, which use to be the most spectacular of Costa Rica's active volcanoes (now dormant).
