The towering cliffs of the Sumidero Canyon. The ruins of Toniná and Palenque. The magic of Tzotzil-Maya towns. There’s so much to love (and explore) in Chiapas. Joined by our Local Insider, you’ll see the very best of the state: boating through the Sumidero (watch out for crocs), hiking between Chamula and Zinacantán, and touring ancient Maya ruins. You’ll also swim beneath a waterfall and explore the beautiful town of San Cristóbal de las Casas at your own pace. This is the best of Chiapan culture… and then some. All of our trips are flightless in destination, with 100% of all carbon emissions offset. It's just part of how we see the world while being good to it.
Your first day is an exciting one, so kick back post-meal in the comforts of this Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are air conditioned, and there’s a fitness center should you fancy an on-vacation workout sesh. In the morning, there’s a welcome breakfast buffet to fuel you for the many adventures ahead.
A magical inner courtyard is the highlight of this colonial-style retreat – and a great post-exploration spot to gather with the group. There’s also a library for quiet reflection and a solarium for sun-soaking. A spot in the historical center of the city makes exploration easy too.
Enjoy downtime in the pool or a swinging snooze in a hammock when you stay at Ciudad Real Palenque. There’s authentic Chiapan cuisine in the thatch-roofed restaurant or under the trees at Terraza restaurant, while a cool drink awaits your slurping at the poolside bar.
