PUERTO VIEJO BIKE RENTALS
Puerto Viejo Bike Rentals, formerly known as Multicentro Bike Rentals, was established in the beginning of 2014. For 7 years we ran our little bike shop out of a tiny little shack in the centre of Puerto Viejo but that came to an end in March of 2020 when the COVID pandemic hit Costa Rica. We decided to close our little bike shack and had some downtime to reevaluate, working for the most part from home doing bike deliveries.
That was until we found a new location in town which we absolutely fell in love with! It’s one of the few remaining traditional Caribbean Cottages in town with an ocean view right from our little office. We couldn’t be happier! The store is also bigger which has given us the space to expand our range of services and we also have a photography studio in the same building. Find out more about photography and design services below.
