El Triunfo

In the depths of the Sierra Madre in Chiapas, is El Triunfo, a unique cloud forest and it’s declared a biosphere reserve. It is the most biodiverse ecosystem in Mexico and one of the last places where the quetzal lives freely. The experience begins in the community of Tzeltal, an ethnic from Nuevo Paraíso, where we will receive you and start uphill to meet the communities that dedicate themselves to cultivating one of the most valued organic coffees in the world, and, if it’s in season, we will be able to enter the core of the reserve.
