Put Pedal to Playa

Put Pedal to Playa

July 16, 2015

If you're ready for a break from the water (hey, it happens), and are up for something a little more intense, check out the Punta Venado Bike Park, the first specific park for mountain biking in the Yucatan Peninsula. Located about twenty minutes from our Playa del Carmen resort, the bike park has 16 miles of trails that take riders through the jungle, alongside the beach and around mangrove forests and cenotes. There are several different trail levels, ranging from easy to difficult, so whether you're a beginner or a pro, there's a trail for you. So pedal down to Punta Venado Bike Park (or just rent a bike when you get there) and reward all that exercise with some beach time when you're done.

Address: Cancun-Tulum Highway, Km. 278, Playa del Carmen
