La Culebra is a fun trail to ride down that starts on the highway after San Andrés Semetabaj, and drops down into Santa Catarina Palopó. It has flowy singletrack, with some technical sections, you finish the ride off going down steps through the town to the main road. This is a trail locals use to walk to their fields so always respect them, stop and let them pass, greet them be friendly as they are the ones who maintain the trails.
