DAY 1: You will fly into San Pedro Sula, Honduras where we will meet you at the airport and bring you to Villa Rhina, our jungle lodge base outside of La Ceiba on the Caribbean.
DAY 2: Today we’ll mountain bike singletrack out to Cuero Salado Reserve. After lunch we’ll take small boats up jungle rivers where we can view crocodiles, manatees, howler monkeys, turtles, birds and much more. After exploring the reserve by boat we’re back on the mountain bikes and we’ll ride singletrack out to our waiting van.
DAY 3: Today we’ll ride trails into Pico Bonito Park and visit 1200 year old Mayan Ruins. This site is unexcavated and we stumbled upon it while mapping out the tour. After visiting the ruins we’ll ride along the Rio Cangregal to some sweet singletrack that will take us out to the best swimming hole ever! Tonight we’ll have fresh seafood in Sambo Creek, a Caribbean Garifuna village.
DAY 4: Today we’ll go white water rafting on the exciting Rio Cangregal. This is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful rivers in Central America!
DAY 5: Today is the ultimate singletrack ride over the mountains where we will be met by the van once we emerge from the wilderness. After freshening up at our lodge, we’ll head into La Ceiba for dinner at a beachfront restaurant and afterwards dance to live Garifuna music at the Africa Club. It’s a memorable experience!
DAY 6: Today we’ll head up the north coast on a dirt track visiting Garifuna villages along the way. After multiple river crossings we’ll end up at a deserted Caribbean beach!
DAY 7: “The Cayos Cochinos are one of the most spectacular collections of islands, beach and reef in the western Caribbean.” -Moon Handbooks Honduras. We’ll charter a boat out there today and play around on the reef. It as good as the best snorkeling anywhere in the world!
DAY 8: Today we’ll take a van to San Pedro Sula where everyone can make their flights home. Anyone wishing to stay longer may want to head out to the Bay Islands for world class diving.
Honduras, quite simply, kicks butt! There is a strong environmental movement in Honduras and more land has been protected than anywhere in Central America (including Costa Rica). The mountain biking is as diverse as the terrain.
