How is the Honda dealer J. Esparza on CA1 doing? They were real helpful to me in 2001. I remember they had a large stock of tires, too.

help in Costa Rica

yo

In San Jose
- a German who rents out KLR 650 and has a good mechanic in house

In the Volcano Arenal area
- Arenal on the lake - German guy who has a small restaurant, takes up long distance bike travelers and know mechanics

- La Fortuna - at the village entrance is a bike shop with tires and spare parts - and I found some guy who does weld aluminum, fixed the engine housing of my brothers KLR 650

greetings
Matt

Smile Hello to Motomech

I'm a biker that lives in Cartago.
This is a message to said hello to motomech and that maybe in Jan-2008 we can see in Guanacaste.

I'm not a mechanic but know very much about the workshops of San José. I also can help travellers if they contact me.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
