You can just ask Emillio or Jenny at Finca Chica, they will send you to a good place.

I'm sure the owners of Finca Chica, Jenny and Emilio can hook you up with a good bike rental spot. If you go into town, you'll see many places on either side of the road, just do some shopping around for bikes in good shape and priced accordingly, you don't want to have a flat tire or a breakdown on your ride.

Thank you for the info - Emilio has already been wonderful with advice via emails, so we will just wait until we get there to see about bikes. We are so excited to be coming to Costa Rica, and especially the Puerto VIejo area. Want to explore everything!

good quality bikes are super expensive in Costa Rica, a cheap beach cruiser is more than $100 US, last time we brought our own bike, cost us $50 extra on plane, but you can also fill box up to 100 lbs, was totally worth it Maybe you can sell it when you leave.

Great idea by Cubanon...bring one from USA and sell it once you have to go back...new bykes do not pay any taxews since are personal equipment...
