Details

This adventure into Central America showcases the best of the region, from the Pacific to the Caribbean coast. In Guatemala, we cycle around Lago Atitlan - a lake in an ancient crater where mountains and verdant hills circle the water. In San Juan, on the south shore of the lake, we meet and support the indigenous ladies that live here weaving vibrant fabrics. We also visit Antigua, one of Guatemala's oldest cities, home to colonial architecture and history. Delve into Honduras' history, learning of its Mayan past at the Copan ruins. Whilst in El Salvador we take La Ruta de las Flores - named for its flowers - through colourful villages and coffee plantations up to Apaneca. As well as challenging rides through tropical scenery there is time to discover other attractions of the countries we visit!

    • All breakfasts are included throughout the trip. Restaurant stops for lunch and dinner are selected throughout the itinerary to allow you to try out good quality local cuisine. In Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, expect to see rice and beans as one of the main staples on the menu! For Guatemala, the hand-made tortilla is ubiquitous and delicious. Due to the proximity with Mexico, food can be spicy, and choices such as chiles rellenos, tamales, tacos, burritos etc are often found on menus. Indigenous regions feature many dishes with turkey, such as “kakik”, a turkey stew. The Caribbean region has “tapado” - a seafood stew cooked with coconut milk. Antigua is very cosmopolitan - Italian, French, Mexican, Thai, Indian and Chinese restaurants are all on hand.For Honduras, our stop in Copan offers a wide variety of restaurants (similar to Antigua in Guatemala). The typical Honduran plate is the “Plato Tipico”, a combination of beef, fried plantain, beans, rice, cabbage salad and a piece of salty local cheese, The “baleada” is a common snack: a flour tortilla filled with beans, cheese and sour cream.For El Salvador, definitely try the famous “pupusas”, thick hand formed tortillas with the centre filled with beans, cheese or a combinaton of the two, always accompanied by “curtido”, a spicy  salsa to add on top. Again, the “Plato Tipico” is always on hand.There are plenty of local beers to try in all three countries, with prices ranging from USD 1 to USD 3. Gallo in Guatemala, Salvavidas in Honduras and Pilsener in El Salvador are all great lager beers perfect for the tropical climate.
