Me and my wife greatly enjoyed our 10-day tour around Costa Rica. The hotels, bikes, and destinations were excellent! I wouldn't hesitate to stay again in any of the seven hotels that Costa Rica Motorcycle Tours set up. We rented two BMW F700GSs. These were picked straight from the BMW dealer. Both bikes were of the current model year and one had only of 1 kilometer on it.

My recommendation is to pack very small and do a little bit a laundry along the way. Be comfortable riding some gravel roads. Most of it was hard pack, but one did get a little muddy after a morning rain. The towns along the way can get a bit confusing but that was part of the adventure. We did make a few wrong turns here and there but we never got so lost we couldn't figure it out. We never encountered an area we did not feel safe. I am sure they exist but we didn't found any.

All in all we had a very good trip and highly recommend it!

Great bike (brand new 2013), great people, and a well organized self guided moto-trip through Costa Rica. For someone who just wants to show up and have all the loose ends taken care of, this is the way to go.

Just want to say how FABUOUS our trip to Costa Rica was. We have been to Tuscany, all over the western US on a bike and this trip was as good or better as any.
From the BMW GS1200, the scenery, people, wonderful hotels, beautiful Pacific beaches, everything surpased our excpectations! With very little to no Spanish skills, we were able to find our way around the country quite easily just by asking for help whenever we needed it. The local "Tico's" are very nice and quite willing to help.
Roadside stands of the most delicious fruits and stopping at "Soda's" for lunch with the locals made our trip even more memorable.
Costa Rico is a jewel that is never too crowded where ever you go. David had us staying in the best hotels! They were all very clean, roomy, and the staff at these establishments were all very helpful and friendly.
David and his crew went out of their way with anything we needed or with questions we had.
We would HIGHLY recomend a self guided tour to anyone with a little sense of adventure willing to be surprised beyond their excpectations!

If you like a good bike ride, Costa Rica is the place to go. Remember: almost all Costa Rican roads are off-road!
