Need to Know

Bring with you plenty of water and supplies in case of a flat tire and such... before you notice it, you are deep into the forest singletrack.

Description

This track truly represents what cross-country is all about. The terrain does not have great elevation gains, however, the technical aspect to maneuver over the roots and limestone will definitely work you up. The track is always shaded, as you are submerged in a forest full of Almacigo trees, which are known to thrive in dry forests. However, the climate here is humid, as the limestone of the karst region now below you lets the surrounding and underground water permeate. You'll also hear the sound of the waves, knowing you are close, but wondering when you'll reach them. I was told a nice beach awaited near the end of the trail, and before you know it, you take a drop full of these limestone... and boom! ... a beach all to yourself..

Bring plenty of water and supplies with you in case of a flat tire because before you notice it, you are deep into the forest singletrack.

The trail itself seems to progress into fun. The first 2-3 miles are repetitive, with both roots and limestone through the humid forest. Afterwards, the trail progress into more sandy soil since you are nearing the beach. The landscape gets more beautiful and the speedy sections and small drops are now more abundant.

The terrain is part of the Tortuguero Natural Reserve. Voluntary groups dedicated to preserving the area cleaned and helped build up the trail. The MTB park continues with the support of the DRNA (Department of Natural Resources) and the municipality of Manati. For more history and background contact the Los Tubos MTB group.
