Due to its location to the southeast of the country, Chiapas has seven different ecosystems, which gives it a privileged geography that is both lovely and odd. Explore jungles, forests and mangroves as you navigate the waters of its rivers and waterfalls. Marvel at the natural beauty of this region.

Although Chiapas is part of the Mayan World, it also ranks second in Mexico in terms of ethnic diversity. In this State people, language and traditions merge into one.
