    Good job! Cancun & Riviera Maya MTB Tours and Bike Rentals (and MTB Park Soon)

    Hi folks, we're just opening the Cancun & Riviera Maya MTB tours company. After more than 10 years riding trails in the jungle we've decided is time to start.

    Even is a flat land, the terrain is very rocky, making sometimes the trails very technical. we have all sort of trails, from the trails for experts to the novice ones, sometimes including, caves, snorkeling, zip lines, Mayan ruins, Mayan villages, kayaking, sink holes (cenotes), spider monkeys, and more stuff all of this inside the jungle.

    please for information you can reach us at our web page: Elite Cyclery Tours and Bike Rentals

    We're also building a XC MTB park, near Playa del Carmen, that is going to be called: "Punta Venado Bike Park" we,re just finishing to build a little more miles of single tracks and where the bike shop is going to be. This Bike park will have the same as the tours, with the great think that if your family doesn't ride they can wait for you at Blue Venado Beach Club, where they can find other activities as: ATV's, Back horse riding, kite surf, wave runners, snorkel, and more!

    Hope to see you around on your bike-cations!

    Sounds like fun! My wife has been after me to try Playa del Carmen, so I may have to give it a try.

    So happy I ran across this. We got a teeny tiny taste of this at Boca Del Puma last time we were in Cancun and that was just a mile ride on junk bikes. The Trip Advisor reviews of these two places read just the same. We are planning a trip right now for November and this has just made the MUST DO list of things to do. Can't wait to meet you!

    Hi Alcarve,

    If we go to Cozumel, how would it work for us to have a tour with you? Specifically:

    I'm assuming we'd need to take the ferry over (what time?).

    Would someone pick us up from the ferry?

    If we did a full day tour, what time would we be back in Cozumel?

    One more: my 8 year old son loves to ride, and rides with me a lot -- would he be able to ride with me?

    Thanks!

    Of course, we pick you up at the ferry port, the time depends on the tour, but the earliest the better. The full day tour comeback is around 5 or 6pm at Playa del Carmen

    @ alcarve,
    Sounds fun! Can you recommend any resorts in the area that have the best/advanced snorkeling either right out front of the hotel or near by?

    Thanks!

    Well almost all the big resorts have their own beaches, but for snorkeling spots, I would say to you look for something near "Puerto Morelos" or "Akumal" those two places are well known for their great snorkeling and diving

    We snorkeled near Akumal (famous for turtles) and the dive shop there was great to rent equipment and lockers from. You can walk right out from the beach and snorkel with lots of turtles, rays, fish, etc.

    My family is vacationing in Playa del Carmen in early July. What are my options for riding some nice trails? I'm an experienced rider, so it's more single track/technical riding that I'm looking for.

    Punta Venado Bike Park, will fit perfect for you, trails for all kind of rider level: check out the web page at PUNTA VENADO BIKE PARK, its just 6k ahead from Xcaret (on the main road from Playa del Carmen to Tulum)

    You'll find the signs of Punta Venado Caribbean Eco Park on the sea side of the road

    Have fun riding!
