Everything shines in the Pearl of the Soconusco. Is that blend of modern urban sceneries and abundance of tropical settings, tradition and mix of cultures what makes Tapachula a unique tourist destination in Chiapas; it is a city internationally known for its coffee plantations built centuries ago, for its traditional architecture and for its geographic location, almost at the foot of the Tacana Volcano.
Surrounded by seven municipalities and neighboring Guatemala, Tapachula de Cordova y Ordoñez (full name of the destination), is the second largest city of the state of Chiapas and the most important in the Region of the Soconusco, south zone of the state.
There is a very important area for adventure tourism known as “Route of Coffee”, where around 13 coffee farms and the San Francisco Waterfall, visitors practice eco-tourism, mountaineering, camping and extreme sports like rafting and rappelling.
Another attractive region is the one known as “Route of the Volcano” (which comes from the Tacana Volcano) where there are: Izapa Archeological Zone, with constructions of Olmecan influence, although the legacy is from the culture mixe-zoqueana.
