San Cristóbal de las Casas is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Chiapas. Located in the geographical center of the state, San Cristóbal allows guests to easily visit places like the Lagos de Montebello, Sumidero Canyon, Indigenous Villages, Palenque, Chiapa de Corzo and many more interesting localities.

Lagos de Montebello – El Chiflón
The tour makes its first stop at the impressive Whistler waterfall Chiflón or The Bride’s Veil. Also visiting some of the most impressive lakes in a forested landscape near the border with Guatemala.

Suggestion – Take home chocolate, coffee or cheese from Montebello. Indigenous communities in the area produce these three products locally.  This is a good opportunity to acquire high quality products.

Cañón del Sumidero – Chiapa de Corzo
A journey of 22km on the Grijalva River to see the impressive Sumidero Canyon, the landscape is simply stunning, so much that the Sumidero Canyon has been considered as one of the Wonders of the World. Visit Chicoasén Dam and do not miss the opportunity to photograph local wildlife including crocodiles in their natural habitat and visit the oldest city in Chiapas, Chiapa de Corzo.

Suggestion – Chiapa de Corzo is one of the best cities in the country to eat, we recommend visiting a typical place for a bite.

San Juan Chamula – Zinacantán
Visit two of the most traditional villages in Chiapas. The first stop is the mystical town of San Juan Chamula. You can visit the Church of San Juan Chamula, unique in the world by the syncretism of Christian beliefs mixed with the concept of ancient gods. Chamula is a bit darker, but just 20 minutes from Chamula find a completely different community, Zinacantán. A textile village where locals are very hospitalizing and offer you to see their looms and have a look at their products.

Length – 9am to 3pm approximately

Suggestion – We suggest you try the traditional drink, the posh. A spirit made of distilled maize. We also encourage guests to follow very well the instructions of the guides and not visit the town on your own. There are certain places as the church of San Juan Chamula where you cannot take pictures.
