Day 02. Early in the morning, transfer to our office to pick up your bike. Ride south the Panamerican Highway crossing the "hill of death" into San Gerardo de Dota.

San Gerardo is also a paradise for birdwatchers as it has more than 170 bird species, including some of the most rare and endangered bird species. It is a special place for watching the resplendent quetzal bird, one of the most ornate creatures of the wild which belongs to the family of Trogonidae. In the past only royalty were permitted to wear Quetzal feathers which served as a substitute for the gems and diamonds known to European royalty. Mayan kings wore headdresses of dozens of the long feathers with their stunning iridescence.

Day 03. Early in the morning, take a hike though the cloud forest, if you lucky you will be able to spot a "quetzal" bird. Continue to Dominical Beach on the South Pacific Coast.

Located south of Manuel Antonio this area has become in the last couple of years, a favorite stop for many tourists. In here you will find miles of unspoiled lonely beaches, beautiful bays along the coast, and the tiny village of Dominical which offers various cozy restaurants and "sodas" (local food).

Considered to be Costa Rica's most beautiful park, with enchanting white-sand beaches ideal for swimming, and tropical rainforest forest alive with wildlife.
