Easy ride for recreational riders and families that provides breath-taking views of the area.


We begin in Panajachel where the bicycles will be loaded on top of our private SUV. With your guide, you'll ride in the SUV up to Las Cruces (about 25 minutes) where you'll disembark with our bicycles. At Las Cruces you'll ride on a quiet, rural road where you will see the landscapes of the mountains between Atitlan and Antigua.

After cycling through the small pueblo of Godinez you'll find yourself on a quiet road that opens up above Lake Atitlan providing spectacular view of the whole lake on high. You will see volcanoes Atitlan and Toliman from a side view where each's distinctive peaks are quite pronounced. There are several miradores for you to stop your bicycle to soak in the views.

After several kilometers of amazing lake views, the road leaves the lake side and enters the small village of San Andres Semetabaj. Here there will be more traffic on the road and the descent becomes more pronounced. You'll slow down your riding and enjoy the twists and turns of the descent .
