If you prefer mountain trails, then you can reach the volcano Rincon de la Vieja by bike trhough hidden waterfalls and a dense rain forest.
You go up on the mountainside through the dense rainforest, make a brief stop to cool off in a fascinating waterfall where the pure waters spring from the volcanic rock. Ride through cattle herds in open field, cross rivers, enjoy the incredible view of the green valley and the Pampa.
The volcano downhill is so much fun guaranteed. Not too dificult even for inexperienced.
We higly recommend to have the right equipment like gloves, helmet, etc.
Maybe you need to take enough water and food in case there is nowhere on the route where you can buy them.
Keep yourself visible (safety vest, bicycle lights, etc.).
Do not travel alone. It’s better to travel in a group to avoid problems but forming a line one after another.
Check the bike before leaving.
Maintain a safe distance from vehicles and always be careful.
It could be a good idea having an insurance.
