Day 1:

The combined Pacific Tour and Volcano Tour is designed for motorcycle enthusiasts who want to experience Guatemala from its tropical side. The first section of this 300 km trip will take you from Antigua's 4500 ft down to Escuintla at nearly sea level.

In Escuintla you'll point your Royal Enfield East on highway CA2. Most of this scenic route is bordered by a lush vegetation and huge trees. Straight sections follow gentle curves and it never gets boring. The constantly changing scenery of sugar cane and corn fields, banana and palm trees provides plenty of variation.

The road ends in La Avellana, where you board the "ferry" to the picturesque fishing village of Monterrico. Truth be told, “raft” describes it more appropriately, which ads an adventurous element to our trip. The thirty minute crossing of the mangrove forest of the Canal de Chiquimulilla is one of the highlights of this tour. In Monterrico, you'll have the opportunity to watch pelicans gliding over the waves of the ocean, while enjoying a delicious lunch in a cozy beach side restaurant.

This is where you'll spend the rest of the day enjoying the laid back tropical vibe of the Pacific Coast.

Day 2:

The joy ride continues the next morning. After a hearty breakfast you'll ride your Enfield along the coastline amidst palm trees to Puerto San José. Gradually, you'll see the volcanoes appear on the horizon again as you head north on the old Masagua road. At this point, Antigua is only 25 kilometers away but closing the loop now would mean missing out on another hilight of this fantastic trip.

You'll take a detour to Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa. This is where the Volcano Tour begins, three hours of pure fun on a perfectly paved and curvy road, where traffic is notable only by its absence. Motorcycle heaven.

Who is this tour for?

The Pacific Tour is not demanding in the technical sense and we recommend it for every type of rider, beginner and experienced alike. We will be covering roughly 230 km (140 miles), this means approximately 6 highly enjoyable hours in the saddle of the 500cc Royal Enfield. If comfortably cruising on a classic motorcycle is your thing you will love this tour. As an added bonus you will experience Guatemala from a perspective the average tourist will never even know about.

As for passengers, the rear seat of the Royal Enfield offers enough comfort for a pleasant ride, even on an extended tour. And there will be plenty of time to relax during our lunch break.

Who is it not for?

Crotch rocket junkies and knee draggers may not get the expected adrenaline rush from this tour ;)
