Chiapas isn’t just one of the coolest regions of Mexico, it’s also one of the most amazing places I’ve travelled to date. The Chiapas region in Mexico is PACKED with things to see, including some of the best waterfalls, Maya ruins and seriously impressive natural landscapes.
In December 2017, I took a one week roadtrip with @brendanvanson @backpackersteve and @kickthegrind from Mexico City to Chiapas to explore some of the best things to do in Chiapas. We were all blown away by just how beautiful the Chiapas region of Mexico is and how much is has to offer for tourists.
The crazy thing is that there isn’t much tourism in Chiapas. Mexico is a popular tourist destination for tourists from all over the world, but Chiapas is still a real hidden gem. We had nearly all the tourist sites we visited completely to ourselves – even the giant Mayan ruins and temples! I just can’t believe there aren’t more tourists in Chiapas.
I hope this video inspires you to consider Chiapas for your next vacation. And if you’re thinking about heading to Mexico, I hope it will get you excited to visit Mexico too! You can see more great locations in Mexico in my Mexico City vlogs and Ouxaca food vlog:
