Amazing Jungle bike experience

For all bicycle lovers, Wakax Hacienda offers a riding adventure that will surely be very different from what you are used to. Join us on our Jungle Bike Experience through the Hacienda’s estate where you will immerse yourself in it’s beautiful jungle, learn about the Mayan culture and way of life, and go for a swim in a breathtaking cenote. In this activity you will first learn about the Mayan jungle’s unique particularities and get to know some of it’s different trees and plants. Also, and depending on the season (and the luck….) you may get to see some of the amazing fauna that inhabits our property.

This ride will take you through 5 miles of pristine jungle environment and it will include two 40 min stops: One at the Hacienda’s Mayan Village, to show you all about the mayan people’s culture and their ancestral way of life, and another at the beautiful cenote, for a refreshing swim in its crystal clear blue waters. At the end of the swim we will offer fresh fruit and refreshments to the participants, before heading back towards the Hacienda.
