You can now relax. You will be met on arrival and taken to your hotel in the old colonial city of Antigua.


After breakfast we waste no time in familiarizing ourselves with the motorcycles. We shall take a 2 hour ride to volcano Pacaya. This is a good introduction to the motos but also it’s a great excursion that lets you climb one of the world most active volcanoes.


Preparation done with bags loaded, we are now ready for our first part of the journey. After passing through Guatemala City we find the north bound highway for Rio Dulce. Soon after arrival we visit la Castillo de San Felipe.

Riding on great roads we continue towards Flores. We are now in the Peten, this northern part of Guatemala occupies a third of the country but has less than three percent of the population. We will take a short rest at Ixpanpajul nature reserve this will give you a good opportunity to view the rain forest from high above the forest floor.


An early start today - 6.00am! Today the bikes will rest as you will be driven to the great Tikal by minibus after breakfast. Towering above much of the forest the Tikal is possibly the most magnificent of the Mayan ruins. Some 285 species of bird have been sighted in the Tikal alone. This is the heartland of the Mayan civilization which reached here from the highlands 2500 years ago. Mayan culture reached the height of its architectural, scientific, and artistic achievements during the "classic period" (300-900AD), when great cities rose from the forest
.

Back on the road for another early start as we have another full day of activities in front of us. On leaving Flores we have a short ride to Sayaxche. On arrival we check into our hotel and promptly get back out for a ride to la Ciebal, a surreal Mayan site. After lunch in Sayaxche our lancha is waiting to take us down the Rio de Pasion ringed by dense rain forest and maybe a few alligators. We arrive at the dirt shores of Aguateca, this is truly a magical place
.

Today we have some exceptional roads, with many of them being isolated mountainous back roads this day will be a blast. On our arrival at Lanquin you will have no doubt this is a overland bike tour.


Today is about having some fun, relaxing a little and if its adventure you want, cave diving is an option well worth considering. The pools of Semuc Champey are one of Guatemala's top sights. Swimming trunks and sunscreen are a must!

This is now a new road with some amazing views. We shall arrive in Coban for early afternoon which will give you time to explore this misty alpine capital.


Today is probably one of the longest days as we cut through the heart of Guatemala. This road is usually in ongoing construction so the pace may be slow at times.


Chichcastenango is one the top tourist attractions in Guatemala. This is market day at its best, thousand of stores spread out for as far as the eye can see. A paradise for any bargain hunter. At late morning we regroup and ride to Panajachel on the shores of Lake Atitlan
.

There are many things to do here at this lake from paragliding to horse riding, or you can take a boat that will take you to many of the villages that surround the shores of this awesome lake.


Today we are heading for the coast of Monterrico. After several hours we arrive at one of the great beaches on the Pacific coast. Just have another drink and watch the sun sink, the bars and restaurants here serve excellent seafood… Buen provecho
!

After a morning swim and breakfast we say goodbye to Monterrico. A nice easy road back to Antigua for arrival in the early afternoon.
