Discover the unspoiled beaches, breathtaking mountains and volcanoes, lush tropical forests, and warm and friendly people of Central America. It is no coincidence that we have selected Costa Rica and Nicaragua for our first extended 14-day multisport trip – these are ideal areas to improve your biking skills and learn to surf.
This epic adventure offers guests two weeks of mountain biking and surfing with our expert instructors. In addition to developing your biking and surfing skills, you'll have the opportunity to discover the lush Costa Rica jungle with our dedicated naturalist guides as we bike trails through a cloud forest, take an exotic river safari, and enjoy a nature walk in a coastal wildlife refuge. In Nicaragua, you will experience an off the beaten path adventure- visiting the colonial city of Granada and surfing untouched beaches. Evenings will be spent in stylish mountain accommodations and coastal resorts as we enjoy the local cuisine and relax after days full of adventure.
This trip is ideal for beginners and intermediates in both sports.
During the course of our Central America adventure multisport tour you'll have the chance to develop your skills in mountain biking and surfing. If you're new to these sports, our experienced instructor will teach you the basics of each and will provide you with the foundation you need to try them on your own upon returning home. If you've already tried these sports, our instructor will provide you with tips and advice so you can take your performance to the next level.

Norah (USA), 2x returning guest: Everyday, the first question is, "How are you feeling?", allowing the schedule of the day to be affected by the mood and energy level of the client. As a result, the trip is never the same twice, each group having their own stories to tell upon their return home. However they got the idea; Access has got it right.
