Teapa

Tabasco

Also known as “La Sultana de la Sierra”, this municipality is 59 kilometers away from Villahermosa. The Zoques named it Teapa, which means “stony river”, since it’s surrounded by Teapa, Puayacatengo and Pichucalco rivers, making it one of the world’s rainiest areas.

A privileged location and humid climate make it possible to find beautiful natural settings, haciendas framed by banana, mango or guava trees and a river flowing south by north over town’s 83%, creating striking landscapes for those who come to visit it.

Teapa’s downtown is an open invitation to explore warm and kind people’s different neighborhoods. El Mure is one of the most important. Here you can contemplate its shell-shape mythical fountain, built with tiles and a bridge that has inspired a local legend.

Tecomajiaca is another town’s emblematic neighborhood. It houses the 17th century Iglesia del Señor de Esquipulas (Church of the Lord of Esquipulas), which holds to be Tabasco’s second oldest Catholic temple. You can’t miss the bandstand adorning the central park, ideal for listening to the musical bands that every Sunday liven up amblers. It’s also mandatory to walk through the picturesque Simón Sarlat street, one of Historic Center’s most iconic.

Its aquatic veins provide an adrenaline injection to adventurers’ body and soul while practicing extreme sports such as rappelling or zip-lining.
