Enjoyed the ride as well as the nature aspect - learning about the native plants. Our guides were great!
We enjoyed the bike ride and are glad we did it. Although you are in a Rainforest, it doesn't necessarily feel that way. You are riding on a road rather than a trail. The last 10 minutes was on a trail that made you feel like you were in a rainforest. This is not for novice bike riders. There are two hills, one most everyone pushed their bikes up. I put my bike in the lowest gear and made it up the hill, but I have ridden mountain bikes for years. The bikes were not in very good condition. Within 5 minutes the chain came off my bike. Someone else had a wheel issue. My wife had issues with her gears. The waterfall was a bust. There hadn't been any rain for a week and the waterfall was non-existent, just a very small trickle of water. The guide was great. He stopped several times to talk about the various trees and plants. He opened a coconut and let us sample it. Overall a good tour.
The bike ride was very short but strenuous at times. They showed different plants and natural spices along the way. The waterfall was beautiful and a nice dip after the bike ride. This trip is NOT for beginner riders. There is really no hiking involved.
The bike tour in the rain forest was fun, however, between the hills, the heat and the humidity, it was very strenuous. Strong cyclists will love it, while a novice might need to ride the bus up the hills. The downhill was fun, but the trail is still washed out in sections from the rain which made going too fast dangerous. Once we left the bikes and hit the waterfall the fun really began (in my opinion). The waterfall decent was not too steep nor too long and once you arrived it was the perfect refreshment to the strenuous uphill bike ride. The water was cool and the guides were very hospitable. They opened coconuts and took pics of everyone with our cameras. All in all I would recommend it - just be sure you are physically fit enough to climb the hills.
