Biking and Canyoning - Petaquirito

This excursion begins in the central coast of Vargas State, departing on mountain bikes from Chichiriviche de La Costa to Petaquirito Beach. The route has 7.5 kilometers of trajectory that varies between hills and downhills. While biking, the extraordinary landscape of Varga's coast can be plentifully enjoyed.
