Hike through Lagunas de Montebello, famous for its 59 colorful lakes. The national park, founded in 1959, is a UNESCO biosphere reserve filled with lakes, pine forests, and small villages. While exploring the park, you can discover some of the small lakes in the area, where differing mineral content creates colors ranging from turquoise, emerald, and clear blue, to brown and purplish. Visit Chinkultic, the ruins of an ancient Mayan city within the park, and climb the acropolis for a view of some of the park's vibrant lakes.

  • The lakes are beautiful: each one is a different shade of green or blue. Each one has a distinct look. There are boats on some of the lakes; food and crafts at others. Worth a visit.  more »
  • Until today I have not visited another place with so much peace as this. I recommend arriving early before the world's tourists, entering lagoons hearing only the sound of birds and water is another level!

  • Certainly all chiapas is beautiful... If you go to chiapas do not forget to visit the montebello lakes where you'll enjoy beautiful views and boat ride... the weather is delightful (cold/hot) ideal for groups of friends, family or good as a couple.
