The quest to Stay Adventurous is an easy task in Tuxtla (for the adventurous) with a plethora of world-class outdoor activities that include Rappel, Caving, Canyoning, Hiking, Mountain Biking and also plenty of culture and cuisine to explore and appreciate.

Most adrenal activities are just minutes outside the city, the capital city of Chiapas and in this episode we tackle them all. Listen in to learn about the two national parks of El Aguacero and its waterfalls along with Sumidero Canyon, tour the nearby magic towns of Chiapa de Corzo and the mural city of Copoya with the Christ of Chiapas, and experience the world famous Sinkhole of Parrots along with caves behind the Chorreadero Waterfall.

    Craig–sometimes your work makes me laugh at myself. I’ve visited and explored Chiapas many times over 50 years and when I listen to your podcast and articles–i realize I have not yet scratched the surface of Chiapas–bill

      So agree there is SO SO much in Chiapas… and I still need to visit San Cristobal one of these visits…. and what you say about Chiapas is I feel about Mexico… there is so much there… and I remain excited to explore more each visit… stay scratching beyond the surface, Craig

        Craig Zabransky: You will like San Cristobal, several various Mayan tribes people are there— they don’t all speak the same Mayan language and not too many years ago they would throw rocks at anyone trying to take their photo– still be cautious of that in the country side– but if you ever catch a free week-visit Comitan–it is very quiet and nice–much like Cristobal was 40 years back and I expect will be a big tourist site in another 15 years—not a great deal to see in Comitan but some great little known ruins close to the little city— well hope to see more of your Chiapas photos soon–bill
