Piercing turquoise lagoons and awe-inspiring waterfalls: immerse yourself in the beautiful natural landscapes of Chiapas on this day trip to Montebello Lakes and El Chiflón from San Cristóbal de las Casas.
Montebello Lakes & El Chiflón Waterfalls Tour
Having been picked up from your hotel in San Cristóbal de las Casas bright and early on the morning of your tour, you'll set off in the direction the Lagunas de Montebello National Park. After around a two and a half hour drive, you'll reach one of the most incredible natural features of the region: the El Chiflón Waterfalls.
You'll be enchanted by the sight of these incredible cascades, which tower up to 400 foot (120 metres) above the natural pools of turquoise water below. Feel the refreshing spray of the mist on your skin and breathe in the clean forest air as you enjoy a relaxing dip in the pools... don't forget your swimsuit! If you're feeling energetic, you'll also have the opportunity to climb up the 800 steps to the peak of the waterfall from which you'll have unparalleled panoramic views over the surrounding landscapes.
Head onwards to your next destination: Montebello Lakes. This UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, located near the Sumidero Canyon and the border with Guatemala, is home to 59 multi-coloured lakes. Marvel at the striking tones of the water, which vary from turquoise to black depending on the plants and minerals found around the lagoons.
After an unforgettable day exploring these magical natural landscapes, you'll return to San Cristóbal de las Casas feeling refreshed.
