For those who enjoy combining sightseeing with a good workout, this is definitely the tour for you. The coastal paradise of Huatulco is known for its nine beautiful bays and the scenic route you'll take on your mountain bike will allow you to see three of these magnificent bays while partaking in some invigorating exercise.
Meeting your guide at the pier area, you'll be issued a Cromoli 18-speed mountain bike and helmet. Once you have received your safety briefing and route overview, you'll begin a ride that has you discovering the beautiful scenery of this new resort area. Your route has you first passing by Chahue bay before climbing to Tangolunda viewpoint (two miles total distance in this segment, with a moderate slope of 25 degrees on the last 600 yards) for a 10-minute water and photo stop.
From here, it's a downhill ride to lovely Tangolunda Beach Park for a 30-minute stop. Sea conditions permitting, you'll have the chance to cool off with a refreshing dip in the ocean. Complimentary cold water and a fresh water shower are available here for your comfort and convenience. Continuing on, you'll trek to the upscale hotel zone of Tangolunda Bay, returning by way of the boulevard that travels alongside the golf course. Switching to a different path, you'll then climb to Chahue bay (with a slope of 90 degrees in the first 800 yards), before heading up to la Crucecita for a 15 minute rest stop at the charming central plaza. Finally, the last segment of your journey brings you back to the pier, perhaps a bit tired, but filled with the exhilaration of having experienced a unique sight-seeing adventure.
