Mountain Bikes And The Sacred Valley
Going mountain biking in Costa Rica may seem like an odd thing to do, given that the country is well known for its pristine natural environment. Most people would, however, be surprised to learn that Costa Rica has another mountain biking hot spot, the Sacred Valley. The region offers 13 different biking routes, all within close proximity of San Jose. The routes are based around the irregular terrain of the region, and there are numerous challenging climbs and hazardous descents to cycle on.
Biking In The Central Valley สล็อตเว็บตรงไม่ผ่านเอเย่นต์
In theCyteus Mountainsrange are several biking routes in the Central Valley. The Forest Route, which runs through the San Isidro Archaeological Park and volcano, is a great place to start. The ride takes you through the delicate ecosystem of the rainforest, over Tree Houses and down into the acidic gorges to where freshwater flows. You’ll also get to see a huge diversity of flora and fauna and the wide range of plant and animal life it hosts.
The Los Alamos National Park is home to the Gran Chaco Americano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is packed full of prehistoric cliff dwellings, stark landscapes and rich in biodiversity. Exploring the dramatic terrain, you will come face to face with the remnants of volcanic activity and see the canyon floor resting on the ocean floor. Caravans are built on these beaches and campsites are available.
Heading south from the Central Valley, you can visit the La Ensenada Nature Park. The park showcases the irreplaceable role the jungle played in the development of the human culture. The human population grown from the jungle began to settle in the area and carry out their activities, cutting down rainforests andanches and changing the landscape. Mountain Bikes
As well as the human impact, you’ll also be able to visit the Tambopata National Reserve. This is a completely different experience from the San Isidro Natural Reserve, but it is definitely worth while exploring the area. You’ll see how the landscape was affected by the eruption of the supercontinent Pangea and how it today supports varied flora and fauna. Mountain Bikes
Vinales Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most untouched areas of jungle in the region. The area is covered in thick forest and, because of this, there are a variety of wildlife and flora species. The Wallpachaca National Reserve is also located in this area, featuring attractive mountain peaks and an 18 km gorge.
Another thing that is striking about the Cyteus Mountains is that it is absolutely lush, with densely packed vegetation and an abundance of different species of plants and tree. It’s also a great area for birdwatching and mountain biking. If you’re feeling energetic, there is Uttarey, an eight-hour trail that runs along an old glacier.
If you’d prefer a longer hike, there are plenty of trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Start with the Blue Garden Route and go up and down the various peaks, crossing the Caparisto and catching a glimpse of the splendid glacier capped peaks. There are also opportunities to visit the wet markets and snowmobiles, and a horseback trail that runs along an old camel path. Mountain Bikes
For those who are a little less energetic, there is a great view at the top of Mt Elbrus, a volcano that has been active in the past. Theinks have been known to flow over the top of the volcano, and on a clear day you can see almost all of them. After you’ve seen the volcano from ground level, climb up to the top and see theOCK sky-scrapers that slices through the dark skies above. Mountain Bikes

Climaxwell Beach is a great place to swim, snorkel, and swim-in the clear seas, coming face to face with astounding Pompeii and its dead settlers. The beach is also a great starting point for a drive through Wine Country, as the island is mostly car free. However, it is important to remember that cars are not allowed on the beach so you must use a designated pathway.
For those who want to walk out on the water, the beach is small and not particularly well marked, but it’s still a good place to walk in the general direction. At the far end of the beach, near the wine country settlement of San Giorgio, you’ll find a pyramid with a shiny brass mask. Mountain Bikes
