Misol Ha and Agua Azul

Both of these very different waterfalls are located on the road between Ocosingo and Palenque. If you are visiting the Palenque ruins, then be sure to include these natural wonders in your itinerary.  Although Agua Azul (Blue-Waterfalls) has been experienced significant tourism development over recent years, this natural sight is still unsurpassed. This waterfall...

The Lacandon Rainforest

If you have 4- 5 days, the largest and best preserved area of tropical rainforest in North America is well worth exploring. Here you will encounter ancient Maya cities, small Lacandon Indian villages, beautiful lakes and rivers, and pristine rainforest that is home for many species of animal. The forest is sufficiently large to...

El Chiflon

A visit to this spectacular series of waterfalls, about 2 hours from San Cristobal, is best in the morning or midweek to avoid the crowds.

The Sumidero Canyon

A spectacular canyon between Tuxtla Gutierrez and the pretty colonial city of Chiapa de Corzo, about 45 minutes from San Cristobal.

The principal structure, the acropolis, rises over 70 metres above the main plaza and is one of the highest structures...

Yaxchilan

This amazing site is worth visiting just for its spectacular setting, in the heart of the Lacandon Rainforest, on the banks of the wild Usumacinta River and is relatively close to Bonampak, another Mayan site, famous for its coloured murals. To reach the ruins you have to take a boat from the Chol Indian...

Palenque

The most visited Mayan site in Chiapas and a World Heritage Site is spectacularly positioned within a lush rainforest, the temples and pyramids seemingly emerging from the forest backdrop. The best time to visit is during the quieter early morning when the ruins and forest are often enveloped in a mysterious mist, penetrated by...
