Laid-back cycling holidays in Latin America

 

These laid-back cycling holidays through Latin America are less about proving yourself than enjoying yourself, and seeing some incredible sights along the way. Prepare for volcanoes, pyramids and mojitos on the beach!

Cuba by Bike 

Cycling along Cuba's roads

Cuba pulses with salsa rhythms and energy, from the cities where the scents of cooking waft past open windows, to white-sand, palm-fringed beaches where ice cubes clink in glasses of rum.

Cycle at a relaxed pace through untouched Cuban countryside, with plenty of stops for swimming and mojitos en route.

Cycling in Mexico

The heat of the Central American sun bathes Mexico, a country whose deliciously diverse history is visible wherever you go.

From the dusty ruins of the pyramids and temples of the ancient Mayans, to modern villages awash with colour and music, and beyond that crystalline waters running through steep-sided canyons, Mexico is unparalleled for moderate cycling.

Cycle Nicaragua, Costa Rica & Panama

Mountains of Central America

This epic journey passes through three unique Central American countries, past volcanoes and steamy rainforests.

You’ll see lakes and rivers and cities both metropolitan and colonial, tropical island paradises and all manner of rare animals. An unforgettable adventure on two wheels.

Cycling Colombia

Coffee region of Colombia

On the western slopes of the Central Andes sprawls ‘Eje Cafetero’, the coffee region of Colombia. Smooth tarmac roads wind through this vast, picturesque scene, linking the plantations and rural towns where few tourists venture.

It may be the most challenging trip on our list but your efforts will be well rewarded with stunning vistas and warm local hospitality.
