Hiring bikes during your holiday in Playa Blanca will give you the chance to get around within the resort without having to drive. There are also several villages and attractions that are not too far from the town, with the terrain between them and Playa Blanca mostly consisting of flat ground, making it viable to cycle to these spots as well.
Established in 1998, Papagayo bikes have a range of machines available for whatever cycling experience you’d like to have. From city and mountain bikes to aluminium racing bikes, as well as children’s bikes, kids seats and carts, they will be able to kit you out completely.
Helmet hire is included in the price for each bike and the staff can direct you if you’d like more information about specific places to visit. They also have a delivery service and an in-house mechanic to ensure that the bikes are in tip top condition. Prices start from €11 per day, with cheaper rates being offered for hire between 3-6 days and for over 7 days.

The resort of Playa Blanca is reasonably flat, so cycling around the town is something that cyclists of all levels should be able to enjoy without finding it too arduous. Obviously, even on flat ground, cycling in the summer heat is likely to be pretty hot work so make sure you have plenty of liquids to quench your thirst, sunblock and a map of the area you wish to explore.
