Chiapas is the southernmost state of Mexico; it offers a wide range of spectacular sites, and is host to one of the largest populations of indigenous people in the country. Join us on a trip through the highlights of this state, including the Sumidero Canyon, San Cristóbal de las Casas, indigenous town of San Juan Chamula, and the archaeological site of Palenque.

During the first day of this tour we travel to the quaint Magic Town of Chiapa de Corzo, our base to visit the impressive Sumidero Canyon, whose walls reach up to 1,000m in height. On day 2 we transfer to the beautiful city of San Cristóbal de las Casas, the capital of the state of Chiapas, and the perfect place from which to explore the region and visit the impressive museums, stores and churches of its historic centre. From here we include a visit to the indigenous town of San Juan Chamula, a place full of history and tradition, inhabited by the Tzotzil people.

A highlight of this tour is the famous Mayan archaeological site of Palenque. On the journey from San Cristóbal to Palenque we stop at the beautiful waterfalls of Misol-Ha and Agua Azul. Our tour includes accommodation in the tropical forest surrounding the ruins, where we can hear the local wildlife, including the calls of the howler monkeys and many bird species.
