Things to do

Bird Watching in Mexico

Palenque

Some 10% of the earth's biodiversity lies within Mexico-which means the bird watching is among of the most varied there is. Whether you go in for highland, jungle or desert species, you're looking at some of the finest feathered friends anywhere. Top Mexico bird watching: the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve in Chiapas is home to owls, finches, jays, nightingales and gorgeous, extravagant quetzals; near Coatepec and Xico in Veracruz you can spot hummingbirds and other mountain species.

Shooting the Rapids in Chiapas

Palenque

Chiapas is blessed with a varied climate that ranges from hot, sunny beaches to cool, misty highlands and rainforests, Chiapas features waterfalls and mangrove forests, sheer cliffs and breathtaking lagoons. The plant and animal life is among Mexico's most varied, home to wild orchids and towering ceiba trees, howler monkeys, parrots and even big cats like jaguars and ocelots. Rafting trips down the La Venta River are unforgettable and can include hiking 164-ft deep canyons at the Arco del Tiempo Reserve, wilderness camping or visits to Lacandon villages, where jungle inhabitants share their knowledge and traditions with fascinated visitors.
