Your plans for a perfect holiday include a nice stay in Costa Rica along with biking? Here is everything you need to know.
First of all, you need to decide if you wish to bring your bike or prefer to rent one over here. In both cases, the best way to travel is by joining a group. In this way you will be travelling along with proper transportation and a guide, so you just have to worry about your riding and your performance.
There are pros and cons:
Pros of bringing yours: you already know what kind of bike you are bringing and are used to it.
Cons: be aware there are flight charges you may have to cover and if you do not have a special case for your bike, you are going to have to buy one.
Pros of renting one: you pay a fee, but do not have to worry about transportation from home to Costa Rica.
Cons: you do not know what kind of bike you are getting, its performance and if you will “click” with it.

The reason why I do recommend travelling with a group is because of safety. Let’s be honest, bicycles are not cheap (rented or not). If you are on holiday you do not want to worry all the time about your bike, you want to relax and enjoy the ride.
Your tour guide and eventually driver has to make sure bikes are safe while you have the best time.
Be very honest and choose what kind of bike tour you want to do. If it is more recreational please consider renting a bike in the Caribbean and ride towards different beaches in this transportation mean. The terrain is plain, it is kind of romantic, as well as green.

On the other hand, if you are more than an amateur and want some more challenges, take a look at which routes you have already accomplished and compare them with the altimetry of your desired program in Costa Rica. If it matches, you are in the right way.
Now you may be thinking, why choosing Costa Rica among lots of destinations in the world.
Here are some reasons:
