we spent a wonderful day, cycling through the magic native jungle of the Yucatan and exploring the natural habitat of spider monkeys while walking through a forest, full of ancient mayan structures that remind you of the mysterious history that makes this place so special.
For lunch we were invited into a local family home where we learned about the traditional way of living in coexistence with nature, the preparation of healthy homemade food, the use and cultivation of plants and bees that are native to the area.
The entire day was super well organised and full of interesting information presented by a friendly and professional guide who loves sharing his knowledge with the group but doesn't overload you with facts. although when asked, has detailed information about anything you could want to know about the area, the people or wildlife.
If you are a conscious traveller, searching for the people who are doing it right and support the local community and nature preservation:
Congratulations, you have just found them!
Thank you for your insightful comments & review!
You are welcome on tour with us anytime, but we hope it is sooner rather than later!!
Hope to see you again soon
My partner and me took the full day tour of Mayans Backroads and we truly loved the experience. Our guide Pluma was just great! He was very kind and gracious and shared a great deal of information about Mayans and life in Mexico. We cycled through some rural roads and trails and spent a good part of the morning with a gracious Mayan family where we learned about ancient bee keeping and daily living of this beautiful family. We were treated to a delicious home made meal made with care and kindness.
We then cycled to a protected jungle and got to see a happy family of monkies. Our tour ended with a bit of zip lining, kayaking and swimming in the lagoon (lake).
This was a truly authentic experience and we left with such great memories.
The company arranged for transportation for us from our resort at a very reasonable cost which we were grateful for.
I own a five star bike tour and rentals company. So, I recognize one when I see one. This was a five start experience and the best birthday gift for my partner.
Thank you so much for your gratitude & endorsement!
It is special for us to have a colleague in the bike tour business come with us and to let us know their opinion of our setup.
Much appreciated! So glad we were able to make it happen for you.
We will be sure to look you up next time in Ottawa!
All the best,
