What you'll do

To get things started, we'll meet up (usually at my place towards the south end of Jaco) to pick up mountain bikes, helmets, gloves and water bottles. From there, we'll cruise to Miro's Mountain....where the fun begins!!

We'll ride (hike when needed) up Jaco's most popular trail where you'll see spectacular views and amazing wildlife (3 types of monkeys live here, Scarlett Macaws, two types of Toucans, sloths, poison dart frogs, wild pigs and more).

We'll make stops at the "arches", the "restaurant" and "Cruce Hermosa." At "Cruce Hermosa" you will have the option of continuing on to "El Nance" (my favorite lookout!) and "Tres Marias." *Beginner/Intermediate -not technical

All rides are based on riders ability/fitness level. No worries if we need to walk a bit. Hike and Bikes are a great way to explore. You cover more ground than hiking which allows you to see more!!! Plus the downhills are more fun!!!

I can also arrange a more mellow/flat ride for those that don't like riding uphill. There are a couple of options in the area that allow you to enjoy the countryside without overexerting yourself.
Other things to note
I have rides for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced. Please get in touch and let me know how I can be of service.

It's all about getting outside and having fun!

About 5 years ago I feel in love with mountain biking. I first started riding on a bike that was given to my wife. Although it wasn't a perfect fit nor the best of quality, I started riding the local mountain and the addiction took hold. Since then I've spent countless hours on the mountain and I'm a finisher of the famous La Ruta de los Conquistadores '18 mountain bike race.

By no means do I consider myself a pro rider. I just have this crazy love for MTBing and spending time on the mountain. Riding thru the Costa Rican countryside is truly amazing!!

Where you'll be

*Miro's Mountain is by far the most beautiful part of Playa Jaco. There are amazing views (the "arches" and the "restaurant), lush forest and lots of wildlife (monkeys, scarlet macaws, poison dart frogs, toucans, wild pigs and much more!

*For intermediate/advanced riders, I offer rides to Bijagual (this ride is the first ascent of La Ruta de los Conquistadores) and Villa Caletas (via Herradura).
**We also offer mellow/flat rides upon request.

I highly recommend going on a ride with Todd. He tailors the ride to the level you want, so when he asked if we wanted a flatter ride or a mountain ride we picked a mountain ride. My daughter is a triathlete and I ride fairly often, but both of us are used to mostly flat rides. The mountain ride was challenging, but my daughter had no problems getting up the hills. I had to walk the bike in the steeper places, but Todd was always extremely patient. We learned about how he came to Costa Rica, about the races he has done, and about the local flora and fauna. We saw scarlet tailed macaws, a number of toucans (the yellow type, not the green), and lots of cool tree frogs. The views were fantastic, as we could see Jacó (the bay and city) on the one side and Playa Hermosa and all the way to Manuel Antonio on the other. The views were worth the tough ride. In sum, if you want to bike in Jacó, go with Todd.

Todd knows the areas around Jaco very well and he will be able to match you up with a ride that matches your ability and fitness levels. We went up the Jaco Miro just south of Playa Jaco and the painted wall murals and view were magnificent. Todd pointed out some White Faced monkeys and we heard some Macaws that were flying about. Unfortunately for me, although I was used to the high altitude of my home riding in Denver, I was not use to the incredible high humidity, coupled with the heat. I got dizzy, but Todd did a great job of taking care of me. He initially wanted to go for a 7am ride, but I pushed for a 9am start time, being on vacation and in no hurry. I should have went with Todd's suggestion. LOL. Unless you are in very good shape and some what accustomed to humidity/heat, I would generally go for an early start. I would 100% recommend this ride/adventure if you like mountain biking and the beauty and biodiversity of the Costa Rican jungle! Todd is a class act BTW!
