Hola {{lead.first_name}},

2020 is right around the corner and we are excited to announce several new itineraries that connect the best of Guatemala by bike. Have you ever felt inspired to ride in a completely different part of the world? Come experience a wealth of Mayan culture, pine forested mountains, active volcanoes, shimmering coasts and technical trails with over 600 years of history.  The land of the eternal spring is waiting.

Cumbre al Mar

“Summit to the Sea”

This has been a dream ours for a while –a ride you can only do in Guatemala with nearly 3000m  (10,000ft) of descent from the mountains to the sea! Follow rugged jeep track traversing a variety of climates and finish at the surf town of El Paredón on the pacific coast.

 Confimed departure! – Jan 4-5, 2020

Includes full suspension bike, guides, vehicle support, meals and hotel. 

Baja Verapaz – Full Enduro Weekend

Baja Verapaz is an arid region of Guatemala along a tectonic fault – with massive 2000m, waterfalls, and technical, dry riding.  Join us this January for an exclusive itinerary and visit and take part in the national enduro competition.

 Confimed departure! – Jan 24-26, 2020
By request we have extended our popular 5 day enduro tour  to include a full week of riding that connects the best descents in the country. This point-to point shuttle assisted itinerary includes   house rentals, mountain cabins, hot springs, and a rest day at Lake Atitlan. The tour culminates with a one-of a kind mule-assisted descent of the Agua Volcano at 12,800ft!

If you are an advanced rider looking for the MTB itinerary of a lifetime this is the trip to get on!

Totonicapan Trip

‘Tis the season to ride bikes in Guatemala! 

November for us was a whirlwind of events, tours and travesías (group rides) taking advantage of great winter weather this time of year. We started the month with the first edition of our trip to the Giant Kite Festival by bike – with great success. We had a diverse group of locals and foreigners including one of our youngest riders yet – 8 years old!

Our Todos Santos Enduro tour connected the toughest trails in the country on a 3 day itinerary through in the north of Guatemala. We joined over 1000 other riders in community group ride to the summit of the Cuchumatanes mountains at 3400m. This was one of our biggest groups yet, 14 riders from several countries who pushed their limits on rocky terrain in the highest mountain range in Guatemala.

Creciendo con Corazón

¡Guauu! El mes pasado guiamos más de 20 viajes con extranjeros y nacionales. Comenzamos el mes con nuestro primer viaje a Barriletes Gigantes en Bici con un grupo de todas las edades (¡el más joven tenía 8 años!) el evento fue un gran éxito.

La camioneta amarilla MTB Guatemala se podía encontrar en las travesías locales Campanabaj y Los Cuchumatanes. Para todos nuestros tours incluimos rutas especiales que ninguna otra compañía ofrece. La reputación está creciendo de que Guatemala es de clase mundial.

Recientemente nos hemos asociado con alquileres de cabañas exclusivas para nuestros recorridos para que pueda entrar, salir y alojar en las montañas. Además de tener varios de nuestros

primeros grupos de bikepacking. Espera a ver qué más se desarrollará.

Mantente en contacto y esperamos verte pronto!
