Very disappointed. Went to Zih over Christmas holiday and was hoping to do a bike tour but they didn't have any. So sad!

“Awesome back country mountain bike tour”
Reviewed April 2, 2011

Alejandro is a fanastic guide. He showed us parts of Zihua we would not have seen otherwise. He did so with humor, thoughfulness and charm. I highly recommend doing his mountain bike tour.

“Bike to see the countryside around Zihuatanejo and the wildlife refuge”
Reviewed January 28, 2011

We did great tour with Alejandro Juarez of Bi-Zihuanas.
We biked to El Refugio de Potosi, about 30 mi round trip.

Started early morning (8am) to avoid heat and traffic.

The route was mostly on side streets through Zihua, a short stretch on wide shoulder of highway, backroads through the edge of Coacoyul, dirt road past coconut groves and bungalows and lagoons, mid morning snack at beach side restaurant, and long rest with fascinating tour of the animals at the Refugio.

No matter how you get there, El Refugio de Potosi is great way to see the local wildlife up close. It was interesting to see the birds the Refugio wants to breed, reptiles, butterfly house, coatimundi, wild cat, and young porcupine here. Most important, the effort seems to be centered around education and improving the local area, not just development of a tourist attraction.

A group of five in tour, age range from mid-thirties to mid-sixties, all regular cyclists. Alejandro led the tour and assistant Roberto followed to make sure that I didn’t get too far behind the other 4.

I opted to take a ride back in pickup truck, knowing the early-afternoon heat would be too much for me and not wanting to hold back the more energetic cyclists for the whole trip.

You need to make that decision about the tour at least the day before to give Alejandro time to arrange the transport also to make sure he has enough of the right size bikes.

The bikes were good bikes with shifters and brakes all functioning well. Helmets were included and a bottle of water that fit in bottle holder on the bike.

Alejandro took pictures of us along the way and posted them on facebook where we could download them. (Bizihuanas Mountain Bike Tours)

Reasons for choosing the tour were expert local knowledge of good route, younger member who wanted longer trip, good bikes, and friendly, well-spoken, knowledgeable guide and assistants.

The tours offered are evolving and Alejandro seemed flexible so talk to him about what is important to you in your tour. Trying to remember how we got to el Refugio and looking at Google maps when we arrived home, reinforced the value of a guided tour for this destination (much of the route is not obvious on Google maps).
