Voyage to Chiapas – Day 1


AdvertismentMy maestra de español, Marina Aguirre, organized a trip to the state of Chiapas.  It was 8 days and 7 nights, from January 18 to 25.  Except for some meals and purchases everything was included in the price.


The tour included the cities / towns of:  Palenque, San Cristóbal de las Casas, San Juan Chamula, Zinacantán, Amatenango del Valle, Chiapa de Corzo, Cañon del Sumidero, Tenejapa, Toniná, and Agua Azul.  Marina scheduled the trip so that there was a festival occurring at most stops.  Below is Marina’s itinerary.

Marina rented an Autotur bus which accommodated the 26 of us quite nicely.  Our drivers, Victor and Johnny, were marvelous and handled the mountain roads with ease.

We stopped for lunch outside of  Campeche.  After which we did get a brief bus tour of the walled city.  Seeing the walls and cathedral of Campeche made me want to schedule a weekend trip there soon.  So taking an hour out for lunch, we resumed our ride to Palenque which took about 9 hours on the road.  Thank goodness for a bus with a bathroom!  The goal of day one was mainly to get us from Mérida to Palenque, where we stayed at the Hotel Misión Palenque.
