What to expect?

In the afternoon, arriving at the airport or the bus station in Tapachula, you will meet José, who will accompany you on the way to his house, Casa José, in the town of Talquián, where the entire Roblero family welcomes you. The next day, you will leave very early in the morning walking towards the volcano and will stop for breakfast in Papales, a small town that is located right between Chiapas and Guatemala. You will continue your ascent to reach the second space and set up camp. They will prepare dinner and eat it right there and finally enjoy a nice bonfire before going to sleep. In the morning the host wakes you up with coffee and bread so that you can enjoy the beautiful sunrise and, again, you will leave walking early to reach the top of the mountain, where you can rest and participate in a ritual of gratitude to the 4 winds. Then, they will begin the descent to arrive once again at Papales where you can taste the food from there, to end with the hosts saying goodbye to take you back to the airport or bus station and wish you a good trip to your next destination.

Your Hosts

I am José Alfredo, a descendant of the Mam ethnic group and a native of the mountains. I am part of a group of guides and bird watchers who are passionate about our region. From the age of nine I started to climb the volcano; Today, I am an experienced high mountain guide. I really like nature, and it is my mission to take care of it and protect it. I love receiving travelers in Talquian and teaching them about my culture and the volcano.
About Talquián, Chiapas
Located on the slopes of the Tacaná Volcano is our town Talquian, a quiet community off the beaten track. In the area there is a great variety of climates that go from the tropical heat of the coastal plain to the cold of the high mountains, passing through one of the last mesophilic mountain forests still alive in Mexico. Among these ecosystems the Mam culture lives latent in different villages scattered in the mountains and which you can only access by walking.
