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
The Sima was an easy but long drive from San Cristobal (even more accessible if you're traveling from Tuxtla). There is a well-made path around the chasm for bird-watching and we observed an orange-breasted falcon, orioles, and a lessen's motmot in addition to the hundreds...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
