Extreme sports have made their way to Costa Rica for their first ever three-day festival that will run from today until Sunday at La Guácima, Alajuela. At the end of every day there will be musical performances and clubs dedicated to the after party.
The Festival International Sport Extreme is the first of its kind to come to Latin America with professional and amateur participants from all over the world. The festival organizers have also brought in some of the biggest names in reggae, electronica, house, and drum and bass for one night. Artists will perform for their designated night for their genre of music. All musical acts start at 6 p.m.
The competitions are in FMX, BMX, skateboarding, wake boarding and mountain biking. FMX is freestyle motocross with motorcycles. BMX is racing on bicycle in motocross style. Eliminations begin early Thursday and the finals are on Sunday, followed by an awards ceremony.
The Tuasa bus to Alajuela will offer trips to La Guácima for 1,000 colons one-way. The buses to the event will run until late so attendees can enjoy the musical portion of the festival. The Tuasa bus stop is the same one as the airport stop, located right across from Parque La Merced on the north side of Avenida 2.
Ticket prices vary from one-day passes to all access passes, including entrance to concerts and clubs.
