Guatemala: Cycling Activity Holiday
Land of Eternal Spring
Cycling holidays are becoming ever more popular in Guatemala. Bicycles can be rented from towns such as Panajachel, Antigua (Guatemala) and Flores. There are also increasing numbers of organised cycle tours available in Guatemala, which are perhaps a safer, but more expensive option than cycling alone or with another person.
Such organised cycle tours in Guatemala include mountain biking through the highlands and deep jungle biking. Several tours combine cycling with other activities, such as hiking, kayaking, or visiting archaeological sites. Long-distance cycle rides in Guatemala can be hazardous, as the rules of the road in Guatemala are rarely adhered to strictly and most local drivers are not used to seeing cyclists. As a general guide, hiring a bike will cost between £3.50 and £4.50 per day in Guatemala.
