ChepeCletas San Jose Bike Ride
From $40.00
San José is characterized by its Spanish colonial buildings, Victorian mansions, and rich historical sites. This zero-emission bike tour allows you to see the city up close, avoid car traffic, and cruise through San José’s vibrant neighborhoods—past notable buildings, parks, and squares. Your guide navigates through the city and provides useful background information as you stop to appreciate local highlights.
What to Expect
We'll meet at National Theather's main entrance to have a quick intro to San Jose in front of one of the most iconic buildings of the city. Then we'll choose our bikes a few steps from the theather and we'll be ready to start our city adventure.
During the tour we'll have an overview of San Jose downtown and surroundings, we'll see historical buildings, parks and squares, we will ride on a bike-lane and on one of San Jose's main avenues. From Thursday to Saturday we can visit the house of a Costa Rica's former President, today a historical museum.
We'll visit different neighborhoods of the city in an interesting zero-emissions ride.
At the end we'll come back to the starting point.

We had an afternoon for a tour of San Jose prior to joining a group tour, so we hired ChepeCletas for a walking tour downtown (including a visit to the Central Market and food-tasting). Our guide, Carla, was a delightful young woman who shared many...More

We met Maria Jose in front of the Teatro Nacional at 9 am. She was right on time. She led us around central San Jose pointing out historical and interesting landmarks and points of interest. While she denied it, her English was better than some...More

Wonderful walking tour
