If you thought Mexico City was city full of smog and cement, you’re very much mistaken. The Ajusco mountain has ATV routes that will provide you with an action-packed experience surrounded by nature. The company with most experience is ATV Forestal. All of their ATV tours come with a trained guide, who will take you to unimaginable locations such as Mezontepec, Volcan Pelado, the Tres Marias region, and many other places. If you’re not sure whether you can take control of a quad bike, or if you want to add some more excitement to your trip, the company puts on three training courses, split into a 4 hours beginners’ course, as well advanced and leisure courses of 8 hours each.
The most important aspect for ATV Forestal is its reforestation project. This project’s initial aim is to reforest the area situated around Santo Tomas, Ajusco, Parres, Tres Marias and El Capulin.
This is the first program of its type in which an extreme sports activity is used as a means for all stakeholders to help in reforestation in a way that is voluntary, healthy and fun. This project must be self-sustainable using the funds generated through ATV hire, so when you go there and you have fun, you’re also helping to regenerate one of the “lungs” of Mexico City.
