The tour now heads out through the impressive Montanas de la Sierra, winding along mountain roads, threading through small villages with a featured stop at the colourful weekend market in La Esperanza and ending with 2 rest days in Copan Ruinas. Here you can spend a day exploring the nearby impressive Mayan ruins.
The riders now face another tough 4 day stretch across the Jalapa region of central Guatemala; mountains, dirt roads and rushing rivers. Beautiful. On the last day we cycle into the charming colonial city of Antigua Guatemala, the country’s capital from 1541 until it was destroyed in a 1773 earthquake. Here the riders will enjoy a well-earned rest day as the second section comes to a close.
