Beast of the East The Beast of the East is one of our newest rides. We follow the old United Fruit Company’s banana republic railroad from Guatemala City out to the Honduran border and make a stop in at the Mayan Ruins of Copan. This is a super unique ride into Guatemala’s “wild, wild East” a place that not many tourists venture to. The arid lowland deserts and railroad towns are a throw back to the time of the Banana Republic. Following the old railroad grade not only means a multiday rail trail ride that is not super technical but it also takes us through remote river canyons and once important but now forgotten banana outposts. The ride is 5 days of point to point fully supported riding with 4 nights camping and the last night we stay in a hotel in Copan Las Ruinas Honduras. Lynne Bredfeldt "Old Town Outfitters is my happy place. You guys consistently exceed my expectations. I know it’s only been two times, but you are by far the leader in the pack when it comes to professionalism, safety, expertise and adventure! Billy was incredible. You are very lucky to have him as a guide. We had such a great time together, like we we were all put together for a reason. I will forever remember when we were nearly to the top and Billy looked at us and said – let’s touch the sky. "
