These ruins are fairly simple in the areas presently open to the public, compared to those found in later sites of the "classic" period. There is little shade and it is recommended that you bring an umbrella and perhaps a battery operated fan. Worth a...More
We chose this excursion during our Panama Canal cruise and felt it was very worthwhile. Fortunately it wasn't hot that day. I always do my own research when we travel, so we left the group and toured the ruins on our own. We were impressed...More
I could not find any where else to do a write up...so I am putting it here. I came on a cruise ship HA Maasdam in April. It was quite HOT. All I did was walk to the little visitors center at the port. It...More

We did a quick tour of this small site along the roadway in Tapachula. It is easy to locate and see the site as the main road in the area goes right past...the site is out in the open and can be hot in the...More

Visited here as part of our tour from Puerto Chiapas. For some reason, the site of the ruins was not on the itinerary and we had to settle for a field where various stelae were mounted in crude shelters. The stelae are remarkable relics of...More

Hi, you ask is it 'safe'. We live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. And it's a great city, but things 'happen'. I hope you appreciate I'm being picky. Things happen in Vancouver, Seattle, Fort. Lauderdale, and even maybe Salt... More
Hi, you ask is it 'safe'. We live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. And it's a great city, but things 'happen'. I hope you appreciate I'm being picky. Things happen in Vancouver, Seattle, Fort. Lauderdale, and even maybe Salt Lake City. We did the Panama Cruise, our first cruise. In Columbia we did our own tour, and it was great. However what we learned on our cruise, was next time we'd most likely research what we want to see, then do our own 'thing' in each port. We did a number of cruise company trips, and did not like the 'huge groups/controlled' aspect of the tours. Since your husband speaks Spanish it's a plus. When looking for someone at the Port go with someone who looks professional, has a decent/good car, maybe get another couple to go with you, that kind of stuff. (I'm thinking off the top of my head here) Hope that helps......
