    Friends - Suggestions please. My wife and I are planning a trip to Chiapas. Of course we plan on seeing Cañón del Sumidero y Cascadas de Agua Azul, what else should be on the list? My perennial question is, is it possible to rent a MC there? Thanks for your thoughts!

    Good picks, i would also recomend staying in San Cristobal. Also Palenque ruins. Bonampak ruins were cool along with the river boat ride to get there on the Usamacinta River. i stayed the night at Lacondan selva, loved it but got food sick. Dont know about motos

    If you are in Tuxtla Gutierrez spend a hour or so in the Marimba park where they play Marimba music in the evening 365 days a year

    In Palenque stay at Hotel Lakyum. The owners are into MC and have a special setup and pricing for riders. Great place great people. Don’t pass them by.
