Props to to Sam, Adrian and Frank at Pura Vida Ride shop! They are awesome! They hooked me up with a nice ride Kona 26er. The handlebar was a bit too narrow and I think it was the first time I've got 26er. :) definitely felt the difference in gear shifting pattern and handling. So about the ride - one... More

Look no further. You have found the place. Epic adventure. Gorgeous vistas. Unforgettable memories. The guides pull off the perfect balance of expert professionalism and casual fun. Mountain biking, paddle boarding, surfing, kayaking... And anything else you want by request. The best part of it all? They designed the entire experience on a new Eco-friendly beach that feels completely authentic... More

the trails are the smoothest single track I've encountered. I'd call this an intermediate and expert group of trails. Great views. No rocks or roots. Tons of switchbacks with monkeys observing in many spots. Some of the area are steep but totally not technical. The bikes are new dual and hard tail . Special shout out to Ariana,Sam, frank,Scott and... More

We bought the 1/2 day multi-sport passes. We used the boogie boards, paddle boards, sea kayaks, and bikes. The employees were really nice and helpful. We all had a blast playing in the water on the beautiful beach. Pura Vida Ride is located right on the beach.

Had a great 2-hour ride with Sam from Pura Vida Ride today. Set the whole thing up with Francisco via email. They arranged bike, guide, transportation to and from my hotel. Awesome trails with a little of everything. Las Catalinas was just beautiful too. I would definitely recommend and will definitely return. Thanks Pura Vida Ride!

My finance and i found Pura Vida Ride after taking a suggestion to head to Playa Danta for the day. Not only is the beach a great spot, with awesome scenery but we found Pura Vida Ride.
