Tuxtla Gutiérrez: Chiflon Waterfalls + Montebello Day Tour

2. Tuxtla Gutiérrez: Chiflon Waterfalls + Montebello Day Tour

Start this full-day adventure into the wilderness of Chiapas with a morning pick-up from your hotel. Drive to the impressive El Chiflon Waterfalls near the colonial city of Comitan, and hike approximately 1 mile (1.5 kilometers) to the top of the multi-staged cascades, surrounded by mountains and rainforest. Known for creating the impression of a pair of “angel’s wings” that appear to emerge from the mountain, the falls also offer striking turquoise waters that you can take a dip in at the end of your walk. Continue to Montebello Lakes, a collection of 52 crystal clear lakes surrounded by pine forest. Here, you can dive into the refreshing blue waters, and even cross in a cayuco (a small, rustic wooden raft) to see beautiful orchids. In total, you will visit about 4 to 6 of the main lakes to experience the contrasting colors, which can vary from dark green, to bright emerald, turquoise, and even purple or red, depending on the mineral content. You will then be transferred back to Tuxtla Gutiérrez for drop-off at your hotel.
