2 weeks in Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico

My second time in Mexico, one year after Yucatan and Quintana Roo!

While I was there, I met two super nice guys who could not stop speaking about their weeks in Chiapas and Oaxaca. They were efficient, I booked my two-week trip not much later!

I landed in Tuxtla Gutierrez airport from Cancun (120€ for 2 and one baggage on hold with Vivaaerobus) and took a taxi to Chiapa de Corzo.

  • Take a boat ride on the Cañon del Sumidero in Chiapa de Corzo

  1. Emilie what an inspired trip. I dreamed of a Chiapas visit years ago after we became full time digital nomads but we landed a few house sits in the States and stuck around for a while. We will get there eventually; I love the natural beauty, jungle vibes and overall feel of the place. Excellent post.
