About

Tziscao

Tziscao is a community located within the Lagos de Montebello National Park. You will get to know about this special place guided by our family that descends from the Chuj ethnic group. Neri will accompany you to pick organic coffee of the highest quality, go deep into the foggy forest to know the flora and fauna of the place, and to walk far away from any tourist route. Our family created an agro-ecological center where you can collaborate in the environmental conservation of the place and learn techniques to create your own organic garden.

Your Host

In the Morales family we are descendants of the Chuj ethnic group, for generations we have been inhabitants of Tziscao. Don Isidoro and his children: Roselin, Rolando and I, Neri, have been working on environmental conservation for years and to keep the Chuj culture alive through our organization “Lagos de Colores”. Together, we have worked in growing organic coffee with export quality. We open the doors of our rustic cabin next to the lake to receive travelers who want to see this paradise.

Simplemente mágico

Disfruté tanto la caminata y poder sentarnos tranquilas a mirar el lago. El paisaje y la paz de lugar fueron definitivamente mi parte favorita. Muchas gracias por recibirnos, pasamos hermoso! Sigan cuidando de ese lugar tan mágico!

A very special place to go and visit

Everything about this trip was special to me. I studied Sustainable Development so I very much enjoyed the visit of the centro agroecologico, the women’s iniciative to purify water and the cultivation of coffee. It was inspiring to see how much the community cares about nature and human rights. The visit of five lakes was also incredible (laguna de Montebello). With regards to the my stay, I loved the cabañas in front of the Tziscao lake, they are very cozy and confortable, there is WIFI, hot water and there were no noise because of the trafic; I felt really at home! Finally, Neri’s family is very welcoming and sweet, Amerilis is a great cook and Pablo is the cutest kid! In particular, America and Isidoro (Neri’s parents) were very inspiring as they were the founders of the “cooperativa”. It was a pleasure to talk to them and to hear their experiences. This experience was so enriching, special and showed me that it is possible to live differently and in a sustainable mode. Thank you very much for making this experience very special and for being so welcoming to me. It was a pleasure to meet you and I will always remember you!
