This multi-day epic has a few elements that make it very special. On day three we will attend the famous Travesía de los Cuchumatanes – a massive local mountain bike group ride that drew 500 riders in 2018. Our tour culminates on day 4 with a legendary descent and visit to Todos Santos –-an area rich with Mayan culture.
High, alpine and unworldly
For those unfamiliar the north of Guatemala is absolutely stunning with a unique dry climate with rolling hills along a unique alpine plateau with agave plants and limestone cliffs. Locals here heard sheep and brave sub-freezing temperatures at night. The riding here is unworldly -unlike anything in North America. Trails are ancient, steep and rocky – following livestock paths and old trading routes.
Shuttle up to the top of the Cuchumatánes where we will arrive at the gate of heaven – a magical place with a view of the Todos Santos Cuchumatán valley Then a quick and technical descent on old trails with a lot of history We return to Antigua exhausted but full of excitement and great memories of this incredible region.

Great rides, we did the tour with a group of 6 friends and enjoyed it all around. Exclusive trails at Xela, Cuchumatanes and Todos los Santos. We are from Guatemala and would not have been able to ride this trails without MTB Guatemala, very technical + hard, but completely worth it.
