There are plenty of places to rent a motorcycle, but where do you go? Sure you can rent a bike or a quad, and go to Playa Maderas. Big deal. But what if I showed you a place where you can see almost half of Nicaragua from one single viewpoint? With a guide you can go deep into the jungle and meet the real Nicaragua, wild and untamed. Motorcycle lessons are available. Helmets provided.
