Planning a trip to Chiapas is a mission because Chiapas has a wide variety of places to visit and ecosystems in mountains, jungles and forests. To take a trip to Chiapas is to enjoy different climates, to travel part of the Lacandona Forest and flowing rivers that feed living things and separate nations such as the Usumacinta River that adjoins Guatemala.

In Chiapas you will find majestic lakes, waterfalls and grottoes. In addition, it has one of the most striking Mayan routes of pre-Hispanic sites: Palenque which is a World Heritage Site for the historical display of power, art and wisdom in its architecture; Yaxchilán, Bonampak and Toniná surrounded by the great jungle: the Lacandona Forest, one of the last lungs in the world.

If you still don’t know which places to visit in your next (and hopefully not so far away) trip to Chiapas and want to stay in touch with nature, recharge the pile at the foot of a volcano or walk along coffee plant trails, here are 3 nature places to visit on a trip to Chiapas:

Tzimol is a small village descended from Mayan culture surrounded by sugar cane crops and a warm forest full of deer, badgers and tepezcuitles. In this place you will try the most local drink: pox, a liqueur made with sugar cane. You will also learn about the production of palm petates and you will see how the panela (raw sugar) is handcrafted. Don’t leave without touring one of the impressive turquoise waterfalls and pools of Chiapas that feed on the San Vicente River.
