Upon meeting your guide, we’ll head to the bike shop to choose a bike that’s right for you. Once you’ve found ‘the one,’ we will ensure that you’re safely dressed (cycle helmets on!) before heading out for a morning of exploration.
We will cycle around some of the trendiest neighbourhoods in Cancun, stopping regularly to talk about the origins of the city and its plans for the future. We will go into some of the areas where they have been thinking more about the development of the city and learn about the new urban design of it.
Time to hit the beach for the first (but not last) time today. Your local guide will show you some hidden entrances to the city’s top beaches — insider knowledge that’s worth the price of your tour ticket alone!
Time for an energy boost and a carb-packed tasty snack is never far away in Cancun. We’ll take you to try some typical Mexican dishes and give you the lowdown on the local cuisine. Snacks will vary depending on the season and availability but we’ll try things like carnitas, huarches, sopes, ceviche or guacamole.
Your guide will also be happy to give recommendations for other foods and restaurants to try during your stay that will help you avoid the overly touristy chain restaurants and hotel buffets that saturate the Riviera Maya.
Back to the beach now for a paddle in crystal clear Caribbean waters. Remember to bring swimwear if you fancy taking a dip, as there will be plenty of time to do so. We’ll explore some more, check out some impressive bridges and stop for another taste of Mexico.
The tour includes 24-hour bike rental, so if you’re keen to continue exploring the city by bike, feel free to do so (bikes need to be returned the next morning at the tour meeting point). If you are all cycled out, we can help you return your two-wheeled steed at the end of your tour.
Please note: Temperatures can be high in the summer months, so please ensure you bring sunscreen and a sunhat with you. We kindly ask that you consider using environmentally friendly sunscreen, as Cancun’s beaches are home to important coral reefs that are sensitive to the chemicals in traditional sunscreen products.
We also recommend using organic mosquito repellent. We pass through some mangrove forests on our bike ride, where these pests can often be found.
