Our double cab truck takes you to the starting point up the hill. Biking on a dirt farm road through the highlands, our first stop will be “THE BELLAVISTA LAVA TUNNEL”, the second longest in South America. The passage through the tunnels is a 20-minute walk.
After biking for about 30 more minutes, we arrive at beautiful “CERRO MESA” where we can enjoy giant tortoises in their natural habitat and amazing landscapes. The route then continues with an exciting descent through the island’s climate zones until we arrive at the paradise Beach “EL GARRAPATERO” in the Southeast of Santa Cruz.
