Chiapas is the southern most state in Mexico. A land of lush rainforests, roaring rivers and cascading waterfalls, high mountain pine forests that are the birthplace of clouds, and mineral rich valleys stretching south reaching out to the emerald waters of the life giving Pacific.  It is also home to one of the most famous archaeological sites in the Maya World -- Palenque.

Accommodations: 
Save hours of research and contact our hotel experts.  We know the "good, bad and ugly" of hotels in Palenque, San Cristobal de las Casas and Chiapas and will help you book a hotel that fits your budget and individual needs.

Transportation:  There are very few major highways in Chiapas and most roads are slow going.  For example, while the drive from San Cristobal de las Casas to Palenque may not look very far on a map it is primarily narrow winding mountain roads and the drive can take 5-6 hours.  Contact us about best transportation options for the trip you are planning.
