I came to Antigua as an avid cyclist looking for cycling adventures that reached above the usual tourist-geared bike tours–you know, the ones my mom loves that involve more wine than biking–and MTB Guatemala definitely delivered. My first ride, Brendan took me out to the coffee fields of Volcan de Agua, where I ripped around volcano farm single track on a hardtail. The trails were insanely fun, the farmers we met were friendly, and the views were stunning.

The tour was accurately listed as intermediate. I had tons of cycling experience and little mountain biking experience, so I was able to get by for most of it. If you’re a tourist walking in off the street with very little experience on a bike, do yourself a favor and choose a beginner route, or else you will be walking your bike down technical sections. If you’re an experienced trail rider from Colorado, advanced will be advanced, and technical will indeed be technical. I was somewhere in between, and Brendan gave me a lot of pointers that allowed me to dramatically improve my MTB skills in just a few hours. I had such a good time on Agua that I hired Brendan for a 2-day Lake Atitlán tour from Tecpan to Panahatchel.

Highly recommend these guys!
