  • The road to death with the agency Barro Biking went really well! There were 8 of us, plus 1 driver and 2 guides always with us on the road. Luis was lovely, explained everything to us well, was good advice to avoid any risks. I fell and Luis treated me by putting on gloves and all the necessary equipment. After the fall, the second guide was more vigilant with me for a few kilometers, and I enjoyed that. The morning snack was hearty, and the meal ended top! Careful guides, kind and trying to set the mood in the group. We got the photos and videos of the day pretty quickly. Great experience! I recommend it!
