W
e offer a half to 3/4 day Mountain Bike tour to the spectacular & secluded El Valle beach area. The route has many hills and gravel roads.  You much be in good shape to do this tour.


The excursion will start and pass through a small part of town and you will make your way out to the El Valle area.  First stop will be at a small country general store to sample local fruits and goods.  Next up, the beach for lunch and to ride around on the beach some.  You will have about an hour to to eat, walk along the sand and take in the gorgeous mountains that come right down into the ocean into this small beautiful bay.  From there you will mount up again and drive to the entrance of the Cascada Lulu waterfalls if there is water in the river.  The hike into the falls takes about 10 min and it is mostly flat.

The local kids will walk along with us on the waterfalls trail to help anyone who needs a hand.  At one point we will walk over 5 sand bags to cross the river.  I recommend to people that they bring dollar bills for tipping if you need help in a few spots.  The kids are very helpful and kind.  Please don’t be upset with them, they are just trying to make a few dollars working with people who come to their backyard to see beautiful sights. They are very happy with $1 or $2.
 
 
Lunch is fresh fish (whatever the fishermen have caught that day at this beach) and chicken, all cooked on wood fire.  Rice and beans.  Salad.  French fries or fried plantains. All from a sand floored, thatched roof, hut restaurant.  This is the most developed building you will find on the El Valle beach.

Please note: swimming is prohibited at the El Valle beach unless it is dead calm.
 
Bottled Water and Soda Pop can be purchased along the route in quite a few places.  You can buy Beer at the beach restaurant as well as Piña Coladas made inside of a pineapple or a Coco Loco mixed drink made inside of a coconut.
 
Must be 14 years of age and in good condition for biking to participate.  No alcoholic beverages will be served by us on this excursion and you must sign a waiver ahead of time.

Wear normal clothes.  Most wear shorts and shoes.  Some come in their swimsuits.  Wear sunglasses or a carpenters type of safety glasses if you have a pair, for the dust.  You may get muddy if it rains but your feet will probably get wet in most cases as we drive across a river 2 times.
