  • lagoons of montebello was honored to make Act of presence in this place in early December of this year which I let myself be surprised landscape that s can be seen are unique, the climate is pretty cool afternoon go cautious, bring battery into their phones or cameras sufficient since they are 3 or 4 lakes in different place also you can enter these into rafts at an additional cost. also there are very rich places where eating or drinking coffee in the area as the price per dish unless where comi is 100 pesos drinks are not included but are complete dishes (meat/chicken or fish with rice, beans, and tortillas.

  • In this place there are 59 Lakes and lagoons to visit but in truck let you just visit 14... all with an unforgettable view. At the entrance you pay a significant amount that allows you to know the most important. My recommendation: if going to 5 Lakes rent a raft for those Lakes, and ask that they take them to Lake International Guatemala - Mexico, so that they know that border.

  • During our stay in Chiapas, we went to visit Montebello Lakes and were surprised the beauty of them. In our opinion, the best the Pojoj Lake where we could make excursion with Boatman on a raft authentically original. Turquoise blue waters and wonderful surroundings. Other lakes the color of the water was not so beautiful but this depends on the weather. Visit very recommended in Chiapas.
