Unmatched views of the Guatemalan Highlands
From the MTB Guatemala Base Camp you can enjoy a direct view of the Lake Atitlán Caldera with a panorama of ten volcanoes stretching from Santa Mará in Quetzaltenango to the active Fuego and Pacaya. On clear mornings there is a view all the way to the ocean and the Pacific coast!
The site is ideal to pass the afternoon with space for the entire family. Evenings are full of big views away from artificial light for admiring the constellations or searching for shooting stars in the sky.
Sustainable and Off the Grid
Located several kilometers from the nearest town we needed to make the camp self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable. With collaboration from Greenergyze the cabin runs on 100% renewable solar energy with high efficiency lighting and charging for electronics. All waste is managed on the site with recycling and an emphasis on renewable materials.

After the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 we knew we needed to find a safe private place for our clients and to operate our tours. For over 4 years we have been guiding in the mountains of Tecpán and are lovers of the cool climate, pine forests and central location between Antigua and Lake Atitlán
In July 2020 after months of searching we were able to make contact with the owners of the abandoned cabin and began renovations. Located within 4km² of private property Mountain Bike Guatemala has exclusive access to an enormous area that is both safe and secure.
We immediately got to work with the communities to secure the access and permissions needed.
The terrain below the camp has over 600 vertical meters of relief, dropping into steep river canyons perfect for enduro mountain biking and shuttle runs.
On the property we cleaned and restored the water system, installing hot water in the bathrooms and solar electricity in the cabins.
