Our Camps and Training Weeks in Costa Rica

Welcome to RaceQuest Travel's "triathlete paradise"

We've been coming to Costa Rica for years to train, challenge ourselves, recover in an inspirational setting, and prepare both mentally and physically to race and tour the world with RaceQuest Travel. Our knowledge of this special country is deep.

Having experienced the open roads, the warm, clear waters, scenic trails, and the energy-giving atmosphere of Costa Rica, we have embraced this place as our training home, full-time.

You have the opportunity to book a training week or coached camp with us and experience why our location is a perfect fit for every athlete. Join our group training camps featuring world class professional coaches, or book a training week (or two) that provides a nice mix of guidance and autonomy. Check out our Training Calendar now to choose the experience that best suits your needs.

Our home in Costa Rica is truly exceptional. The private villas, pristine beach, groomed trails, and brand new gym and pools of Las Catalinas ensures nothing but the best environment in which to train and recover. 

Aside from this fantastic setting ideal for endurance athletes, there are many more reasons to train with us in Costa Rica. 

With a private beach club, advanced recovery spa, Techno-gym, 4-lane, 25 meter saltwater lap pool and 22km singletrack trail system, this is the ultimate training base.

WHY TRAIN HERE?

  • Picture perfect training conditions. Year-round great weather, scenic routes, trails and plenty of sunshine

  • Warm, clear waters. Out your doorstep, tucked away in a cove on the Pacific coast, the open water beckons.

  • Proven road bike routes. With long stretches of open, cleanly paved, low-traffic roads, you can flat-out time trial here, OR test yourself on the climbs. Some of our riding can be done on the IRONMAN Costa Rica 70.3 course. We provide maps and guides, plus a professional SAG, van that provides ice, water, nutrition, bike pump and of course safety.

  • Variety of terrain. Long, flat roads coupled with challenging climbs...all rewarded with spectacular views. Costa Rica has it all.

  • Carbon road bike rentals. We maintain a nice fleet of Felt carbon road bikes with disc brakes. Every bike is tuned, cleaned and ready for you. Rental fees are $300 total for a full week. Variety of sizes available.

  • Great running. Beach runs plus miles of compacted dirt trails that include an ocean breeze await you. We also conduct run technique clinics, and our paved road group runs are staged often as an "out and back" or hill repeats to accommodate all paces and experience levels.

  • Central and Mountain Time Zone (no jet lag when coming from North or South America).

  • An international airport, Liberia (LIR) is served by all the major airlines. We're just minutes from the airport and we arrange all transportation for you.

  • Mountain biking, gravel rides, and off-road adventures

  • Vibrant culture and friendly people. Experience true "Pura Vida" or "Pure Life" as Costa Rica is known as the happiest country on Earth.

  • Culinary excellence. So much more than just coffee, Costa Rica offers fresh, healthy and delicious food. Staples include fresh-off-the-boat ceviche, grilled fish, tropical fruits, juices, organic ingredients, micro-brews, and talented Chefs to put it all together for us. And oh yes...that amazing coffee!

  • Safety. Cycling is a major form of transportation and a way of life in Costa Rica. The limited number of motorists on the roads are already quite accustomed to sharing them with you.

  • Day Trips. We can put together an itinerary that includes our favorite day trips. For example, visit Mount Arenal volcano, where we enjoy lunch high above Lake Arenal, followed by a therapeutic soak in the hot mineral springs of a 5-star resort. There's simply nothing else like this experience on Earth.

  • It's FUN to be here! Activities for your "down time" abound in Costa Rica. Next door to Las Catalinas, you can take time off at the Diamante Eco-Adventure Park, ride a one-mile zip line 80 stories high above the canopy, looking out at the ocean. Enjoy stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling and complete the day with a majestic sunset.

  • World-class accommodations to suit every budget. Spacious, luxurious "5-star" villas, plus access to a the Beach Club with multiple swimming pools, spa, gymnasium and more. The award-winning oceanfront architecture of Las Catalinas features a bit of Portofino, Italy on the Costa Rican coast! Preview the accommodations here.

  • Training with top coaches and professional athletes. We offer an intimate setting in which you can learn from and train with the best. Each training camp features an outstanding "Coach in Residence" who adds so much to your triathlon experience. Small group sizes ensure a personalized approach.

  • RaceQuest Travel services. We've got years of experience hosting endurance athletes and running training camps that help you improve your skills and nurture your love for the sport. Our concierge-style of service allows you to focus on your training while we take care of the rest.
