      On the western flank of Volcan Agua is a private development called El Zur. This exclusive residential area was envisioned by three American developers Rex Murphy, Richard Mueller and Bill Murphy in 2007. Their goal is to build a community with amenities centered around trails and nature on the flanks of Volcan Agua. They are taking their time to develop this area to ensure it is done with the right mix of agriculture (they grow coffee here), recreation and community living.

      Two mountain bike trails have been built in El Zur. One is a 20km IMBA style cross country trail built by Todd Branham and Matt Hartell of Old Town Outfitters, this gives you a 1500m descent with a maximum grade of 20%, average grade of 9%. It starts at ~2500m ( you can also start lower depending on the road condition and weather), and ends at 1200m. The Downhill trail, built by Gravity Logic, is shorter at 5km with a maximum grade of 10% and is a much easier shuttle allowing you do ride 2-3+ times in a day.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
