I love this tour

February 1, 2019

This tour was a blast! I was a little worried going into it knowing that I am not an expert, but in the end I was immensely happy with my experience. There is plenty of expert terrain but with help and advice from MTB Guatemala and my fellow riders, I was able to overcome any apprehension I had and fully send it. The majority of the terrain is unlike anything I had ridden before.

It was a lot of riding in somewhat loose volcanic sand (in the dry season), so it made for some really fun descents. You will learn to skid turn, for sure. Coming from Montana I was not used to the loose sandy terrain but I had it down pretty well by the end of the day. I am not the fastest climber so I was relieved that the expert riders on the tour waited up for me on the climbs, and they never made me feel uncomfortable or embarrassed whatsoever.

The shuttle support was a game changer and allowed us to reach really high places without having to ride up thousands of feet. At the end of the day we had lunch at a small local spot where we experienced delicious Guatemalan cuisine unique to the village and the surrounding area.

Excelente tour!!!

El tour dos aguacates es excelente. Pase un día estupendo con las guías Alex y Neftali que además de guiarme en bici, me enseñaron mucho de Guatemala de la cultura maya.
Me proporcionaron una buena bicicleta y estaba en buenas condiciones. Cuando llegamos al punto de encuentro Erik estaba listo para darnos el almuerzo o para hacernos el siguiente transbordador. El recorrido fue bonito combinando montaña, bosques, campos de cultivo, aldeas, pueblos y lo mejor, senderos excelentes. Se nota que han hecho un gran trabajo explorando el entorno.
En definitiva un día excelente de mtb!
