  • For 4 years we have visited Chiapa de Corzo, is a beautiful town! The quality of its people. We started by arches or portals of the Centre, all full of crafts. Us divided and each who goes in search of what it wants! Among children, adolescents, mothers and the Lords, until granny. We walked by where we were it such beautiful things. Textiles, souvenirs, purses, earrings, so we walk to Pier! We get headbands, purses, earrings, table runners, embroidered blouses, dresses. My 8-year-old niece brought a dress of Chiapas white $1,500.00 Lords were by liquor coffee and take their snow, teens black shirt with very Mexican designs. The girls through the folders to the "journals". There was something for everyone and all as in greengrocers monkeys! At the end of the day, once in the Hotel, it was beautiful to see purchases that each had made, and I enjoy a coffee in the region with a "piquetito" of... delicious coffee liqueur! Next year... that will bring?

  • This town is a quiet, nice, rural place. From Tuxtla take a route that left us there, we pay as 15 pesos per person. Once there we went to the area for boats to traverse the sumidero Canyon, and finishing that journey, ate at a nearby place that recommended the Tour staff, then we found out that there were better options. So don't forget to take with the first recommendation, travel the site and decide. This place is definitely a must stop if you visit Chiapas.
