My boyfriend and I visited the Sima de las Cotorras without a car from Tuxtla. While it is a bit of a journey to get there, it is completely worth it. This is such a magical and unique place! The sinkhole itself is fascinating, watching...More

Just an hour or two's drive from Tuxtla is this magical limestone sinkhole,150 meters deep and another 150 across the top, with a lush jungle growing at the bottom, far below you. Just at dawn during the rainy season (May-November), pairs of parrots begin to...More

This is an activity that is not well promoted... I don't know why because it's a must see. It's like 1 hour and a half from tuxtla Gutierrez. Open from 8.00 till dawn. It has a beautiful view. The parrots are from March till October....More

Had high expectations of going to Sima de las Cotorras, but turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. If you are travelling on a tight budget I would not recommend going. It started with the transportation there. It is easy and cheap enough...More
