Episode 13: Chiapas, Mexico’s Adventurous Frontier

In this episode we return to Mexico and explore its frontier – Chiapas.

Palenque Mayan Ruins in Chiapas

Sure, we often here about America’s Frontier – Alaska, but other countries have frontiers just the same, and for Mexico, that is the lesser-known and adventurous state of Chiapas on its southern border with Guatemala.

Chiapas, a heaven for eco-adventure tourism also hosted the 2015 ATMEX (Adventure Travel Mexico) conference and with an invite, I attended and also explored Chiapas.

Chiapas, Mexico’s Frontier

In this staying adventurous episode, I interview a local tour operator from EcoExperencias, a guide before heading into Mayan Ruins and then a fellow adventurer, blogger and ATMEX speaker – Runaway Juno.

the wonders and spelndor of Chiapas, Mexico

You will discover the “what to see” and “where to go,” as you learn the best things to do in Chiapas. Explore the Mayan Ruins of Bonampak and Palenque; take adventures both in and on the water by rafting and jumping waterfalls at Rio Lancaja and then visiting the cascading waterfalls of Roberto Barrios. Also learn about other places like Sumidero Canyon, San Cristobal de las Casas and Aquas Azul.

Then, as always learn top travel tips for Chiapas and the Staying Adventurous Mindset Moment – your travel take away and souvenir from my time in the Chiapas.

Chiapas is a place I learned about ten years earlier when working in Mexico City and now I have my own experiences to share. I spent a week, not nearly long enough, to truly immerse, but I suspect I’ll be back and not wait ten years to do it.

    Is there a transcript for this podcast? I am deaf so I can’t listen to it. If there’s a transcript I would love to read more about it.

    • http://www.stayadventurous.com/ craig zabransky

      There currently isn’t a transcript. (I can forward you my notes I read from if you want, but they are a DRAFT for sure and unscripted. ) Also, definitely take a look at the linked stories, and also stay tuned for a story on the Palenque Mayan site next. Stay Chiapas Loving, Craig

        The other links certainly helps. If the podcast is a summary of all these links, then no need to forward the notes. Plenty of info on those. Great fireball sunset, BTW.

        Gracias on the sunset… but the links do summarize most of what’s discussed, but what you miss most of….is the interviews and the staying adventurous mindset moment (sometimes I write the mm in the notes and will from now on)…. those aren’t scripted in any way…. not sure how i can make that happen for you… stay thinking about it, Craig
