Description

Departing from San Cristóbal de las Casas, the first stop will be at El Chiflón waterfall, so called because the 8 waterfalls that form it whistle forming a torrent of blue water as it rushes through the air. As we walk through the area, we can hear the murmur of the waterfalls, which form natural pools of intense blue. The main waterfall: Velo de Novia, 120 meters high, is a wonder of nature and it is worth climbing the more than 800 steps to admire it, together with the vast vegetation that forms a series of landscapes. An ideal place to spend a pleasant day.

Afterwards you will visit one of the most beautiful natural sites in Mexico. Located in the southeast of Chiapas on the border with Guatemala; the Montebello Lakes are “Uvalas”, that is, ancient cenotes that through time have been joined together, they are characterized by their splendorous color in blue, green and crystalline tones. You will visit the Pojoj Lake where you will have the option of a rafting and paddling activity (not included) and there is also the possibility of swimming.

FAQ

How long will I be in each place?
The first stop will be the park with the waterfall El Chiflón with two hours of free time, then you will visit the Pojoj Lake where you can swim or take a raft ride (not included) with an approximate time of 50 minutes. There will be 30 minutes for lunch and finally two more hours to visit three other lakes including the international lake Tziscao that shares a border with Guatemala. These approaches may vary depending on the pace of the group.

Do infants and children have to pay the same price?
From 4 years of age onwards the general price applies, infants from 0 to 3 years of age can go free of charge but they must be in the arms of their parents or guardians and would not be covered by the traveler’s insurance. If you want the infant to have their own assigned seat or to be covered by the traveler’s insurance then it will be necessary to pay for it like any other passenger.

What type of vehicle is it and how many people are in it?
They are vans or Sprinter type vehicles with air conditioning, the units are for 10, 14 or 20 passengers depending on the number of reservations received for a certain date. We only operate shared service tours.

Can people in wheelchairs attend the tour?
Unfortunately, it is not recommended since almost all the places visited in this activity have constant slopes, steps or rocky paths with little or no adaptation for people in wheelchairs.

Will there be a breakfast stop?
Due to the tight schedule of the tour and the points to be visited, there is no stop for breakfast, for this reason it is recommended to have had breakfast previously at your accommodation or bring your own lunch to have breakfast during the tour.

Can I bring my pet?
Unfortunately this activity does not allow pets for the comfort of all passengers in the vehicle.
