Costa Rica Coast to Coast Challenge

It's a busy old year with lots of new adventures with our Costa Rica Coast to Coast Challenge in May which has to be the best multi activity challenge out there, starting on Pacific Coast cycling, trekking, white water rafting and finally canoeing into the Caribbean, some of the hills climbs were hideous, one in particular was 14km long and took 1.5hrs to finish, but it was worth all the hard work as the down hill section on dirt was just awesome, flying down the hills with your arms and legs burning holding on for dear life was a heart pumping buzz.
White water rafting down the Pucare River one of the top 10 rivers in world, rafting through deep jungle gorges with the odd grade 4 rapid just to make sure you weren't day dreaming. We stopped overnight in the Jungle Lodge and partied the night away, then the next day was a huge day rafting Wacas 1 & Wacas 11 both knarly rapids with huge holes.
Exhausted and on a huge high we canoed the final leg down the Pacure into Caribbean.
Completing the Coast to Coast Challenge has to be one of the hardest and most challenging events I've done in a long time, but it was worth all the pain on those huge hills climb.
Bring on May 2014 so we can do it all over again.
