Our first day of riding in Guatemala will be spent at the La Carmona mountain bike park, a coffee plantation with over 50 kms of flowing, rolling, blow your mind purpose built single-track bliss! It is also home to Guatemala’s very own jump park. Need we say more? . . . La Carmona is the only trail of its kind here in Guatemala and the top of the trail network is at 2,500 mts (8,500 ft.), which we’ll climb via 4×4 shuttle and then drop into the beginning of an unreal ride down

The name says it all: “La Infinta” and the downhills does seem to go on forever. The ride starts up in a region locally referred to as Alaska. This plateau separates the Lake Atitlan region from the rest of the western highlands. Views abound up at ~3,400 m with the entire Guatemalan Ring of Fire off to either side. The ride plummets nearly 2,300 m on a wicked fun mix of terrain. After our shuttle out from the bottom on the backside of the lake we will finish the epic day with one more 400 m drop down to the lakeshore.

Our first shuttle takes us up to the start of the Lake Atitlan Slickrock ride. At nearly 3,000 m above the lake, marvel at views of the canyons and surrounding volcanoes.

We will climb 5 kms on trail and the Atitlan slickrock to an area known as ‘El Corazón de las Nubes’, a Mayan Ceremonial site AND home to a unique mix of alpine grass, grazing sheep, and agave plants.

We will follow rocky, technical singletrack through pine forests passing through small Mayan communities.

After a picnic lunch and short shuttle we will continue our descent to Lake Atitlán in a 1,000 m downhill.

At the end of the Slickrock ride there is another sweet drop only minutes from the trailhead.

Two amazing shuttle runs on the eastern rim of Lake Atitlan! Both feature centuries old Mayan trade routes that once connected two of the major Atitlan villages with those of the eastern part of the country. La Santa Cat as it is known because it finishes in the village of Santa Catarina Palopo contours above the lake before it plummets down an a twisty urban staircase to the lake. The San Antonia Maya trail is arguably the oldest of all the footpaths into the Atitlan basin. It is also one of the most technical. Centuries of foot traffic have worn steps into the rock creating an almost Inca trail feel as you drop 400+ meters to the lake.
