Tonina and Metzabok...


Metzabok and Naha Lakes in the Lacandon Jungle
This is one of our short tours. We will visit the Archaeological Zone of Tonina and discover the lagoons of Naha, in the Selva Lacandona where we will spend the night. The next day we will visit the lakes of Metzabok and we will move to Palenque.
Metzabok and Nahá are located between the eastern mountains of the state of Chiapas, in the Lacandon Jungle. They were decreed in 1998 as natural areas of flora and fauna protection to contribute to the use and conservation of natural resources. In them are settled small communities of the Lacandon ethnic group that keep alive cultural aspects such as their language, dress and traditions; and administer the tourism infrastructure.
