Biking to Protect Guatemala’s Rainforest
Winding through the lush rainforests below Guatemala’s Volcan de Agua is a growing mecca for mountain biking. Known as El Zur, the 2,500-acre private nature reserve was created to protect the land. Turns out, the best way to protect the land sustainably is to offer a variety of outdoor activities. Join guide José Pablo Jelkmann Mendía as he takes us through this pristine paradise on bike, replete with lush trails, suspension bridges and dreamlike waterfalls.
