Description

Discover the stunning landscapes of Chiapas, Mexico and learn all about the culture of this region. During one whole day, we’ll take you mountain biking through beautiful mountains and forests and stop at some of the iconic indigenous villages of Chiapas. Join us!

Chiapas is the southernmost state in Mexico. It shares a border with Guatemala and was home to the Mayas. There are still many indigenous groups that descend from the Mayas and keep their traditions intact. Chiapas is also a state full of natural attractions to explore, such as the Sumidero Canyon, the Lagunas de Monte Bello, Palenque, and many others.

For this tour, we can either leave from Tuxtla Gutierrez or San Cristóbal de las Casas. We’ll then begin the 32 moderate, single-track terrain kilometers of this adventure. We’ll visit two magical indigenous villages along the way: San Juan Chamula and Zinacantán. San Juan Chamula is a small town inhabited by Tzotzil, a Mayan indigenous group. You’ll be able to learn all about their traditions and culture and visit the dazzling Church of San Juan Bautista, full of vibrant colors. We’ll then stop at Zinacantán for a traditional quesadilla.

So, are you ready for an exciting Mexican adventure? Then just press the request button and follow us for a unique mountain bike tour.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
