The tour in Costa Rica through other eyes

As I wrote recently, I was recently in Costa Rica on a biking tour provided by Exodus Travels. The only problem?

I idiotically got into a pretty bad accident about two hours into the tour.

It put me into a bit of a bind on how to provide any sort of content for you about the tour, Costa Rica, and my entire experience there because I missed out on the vast bulk of it after face planting over my handle bars on day one.

Luckily for me, the other people on the trip (and the two amazing Exodus tour guides) were more than willing to help. A couple of them allowed me to check out the photos they took on the trip and choose some for a photo journey I posted up here.

And a few of them were nice enough to let me interview them about their experiences on this tour and their thoughts about Exodus Travels and our tour guides. Here is the video I did from those interviews.

My thanks to Exodus Travels who sponsored me on this tour. I wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as I wanted, but I am indebted to Exodus for how wonderfully they treated me after my accident. That being said, the opinions and thoughts on this post are my own.

  1. After travelling twice through Costa Rica by bus it is safe to claim than biking beside those narrow road with cars and buses driving like maniacs is rather suicidal. We were thinking that even walking on the road side would not work unless we do it off road in the jungle with the crocodiles. Hope those biking tours are not using main roads.

  2. We were there at the same time as you and we drove past a bunch of cyclists! Might have been your group, minus you.

    I remember saying at the time, those guys must be crazy with the way the people drive around here!

  3. So kind of your fellow travellers to share their reviews of the tour with us! I’m a great believer in the fact that things happen for a reason so I’ve no doubt your tumble was initiated by the powers at be for good intention. Perhaps to dissuade you from further Central American biking tours?! Joking aside, glad to see you’re on the mend.

  4. Mike,

    That accident doesn’t sound good – glad to see it didn’t dent your spirits that much. You live, you learn 🙂 I’m sure you will be back to Costa Rica someday to enjoy it slightly more 🙂


  5. Sorry to hear about your accident but as we all know…it’s an experience that you will be talking about and remembering for a long time. Glad all turned out OK and I enjoyed the video!

  6. Sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you are ok and it does not put you off further travels.
