Mayan Backroads Bike Tour – Mexico Biking Adventure in the jungle

This Mayan Backroads Bike Tour is a magical tour that takes you into the forests, cenotes & cornfields of the Mayan villages of Yucatan. A real Mexico Biking Adventure in the jungle!

You will meet real sustainable communities that have been living off the land for generations, growing their own food and using the natural resources of the jungle to build their homes.

The setting is the lush forest of Punta Laguna: a jungle wildlife reserve inhabited by abundant fauna of the region: monkeys, deer, coati, birds, reptiles, insects, felines and much more. The jungle is full of life and the sounds of nature lead you into the heart of this vibrant ecosystem.

We meet rural communities who are working to protect their environment & culture, who lead us through the jungle searching for wildlife and teach us about medicinal plants & herbology, native beekeeping and the history of their families. The bikes allow us to move at a natural pace through the green backroads, taking in the landscape & the peace of this rural area.

We will visit a beautifully tended cenote, where you can jump off high ledges or climb down to the refreshing water; hike through the jungle on the lookout for monkeys in Punta Laguna; paddle a canoe, zip-line & swim in the wonderful waters of the lake; enjoy a delicious home cooked organic meal made from home-grown ingredients; all the while connecting with the natural world and a people who live in harmony with it.

This is an active & inspiring means to discover the Mayan world, where you will directly benefit 3 different groups of Mayan families who have turned to eco-tourism to maintain their traditional lifestyle, economy & culture.
