  • The place is excellent, but the friends of the people must not lose sight that colonial is not synonymous with that old, in the shops of the portals there are even "souvenirs" that are dusty, mildew, and some shops with very bad lighting. I believe that, as product of the earthquake are rehabilitating the colonial source and the most important temple, it is vitally important that the rehabilitation not of delay so much, as it is often the case, as they are one of the main attractions of Chiapa.

  • Chiapa de Corzo is a small regional town with much artistic value. Apart from its architecture both housing as a religious, there isn't much to do. There are many people selling crafts and they come from various indigenous people. Lacandon, Huichol, etc... and all are very friendly. Cnocido as "La Pila" Arabian architecture well worth it. Eye, it is not a kiosk. It is an old water well. Of course, the most important of Chiapa de Corzo is that hence leave the boats to the Sumidero Canyon.
