I booked this trip thru Carnival (called Iron Horse Ride) for our recent cruise. My husband and I are both had bikes reserved. There was only 1 other couple with us for a total of 3 bikes plus one for Carlos. This was absolutely the best excursion my husband and I have ever been on. Carlos started with a safety briefing and explained the hand signals he would use. Carlos led the way on his bike while we were followed by Serigo in truck which carried our bags, cameras, and had a cooler with cold drinks. Sergio used the truck to block intersections so the bikes could stay together safely. Safety was a high priority throughout the ride. Carlos to us to areas that would not normally be seen by tourists. He had stops scheduled where he would offer to use our cameras to take pictures of us in various backgrounds. We stopped at a Mayan temple ruin where Carlos explained some of the history of the Mayans and we had an opportunity to see a black coral demonstration and do some shopping. The ride alone the beach was wonderful and we stopped to see a blow hole which was very cool. During the stop for an authentic Mexican lunch (we were shown how the Mexicans eat fajitas) we had a short walk in the jungle that was fascinating. Carlos pointed out the poisonous tree along with the cure tree. We ended the tour riding thru a part of the city that showed how the local population lived. All in all the was the highlight (I think) of our trip and well worth the money. Carlos and Sergio were excellent guides and I would not hesitate to do this again.
