Unique Chiapas: Jungles, Rivers, and Mayas

Explore Mayan culture and the natural world throughout various locales in the Chiapas region, including the Montes Azules Biosphere Reserve, also known as the Lacandon Jungle, and the ancient cities of Palenque and Yaxchilán.

Visit the colonial mountain town of San Cristóbal de las Casas, and indulge in traditional Yucatecan cuisine as you go.


  • Hike and paddle through the Montes Azules reserve and the pristine Chiapanec rainforest.
  • Float down the Usumacinta river and enjoy the sights and sounds of howler monkeys, guacamayas, toucans, crocodiles, and jaguar.
  • As your local guides share the history of their people, enjoy archaeological temples and ancient Mayan buildings in Palenque and Yaxchilán, on the Guatemala border.
  • Catch crocodiles at moonlight with local conservationists in Lacandonia.
  • Get your fill of cochinita pibil at sopa de lima at some of the region’s best authentic restaurants.
