So for the last 2 days we have been higher above sea level than we have been for a long time. The difference is amazing; we are now in forest as opposed to jungle, the temperature at night is a relaxing 15C and daytime up to around 25C.
The community run lakes at Tziscao, Chiapas are extremely quiet and beautiful. The whole village and ‘ecotourist’ area (still not sure just how much eco is in the tourist facilities though – but there is enough care here to believe in this particular area’s claim) are friendly and easy to be in and around.
We are leaving here in an hour or so to head on to Comitan and then to San Cristobel to confront the leaking auto-transmission box … but for now this place is a definite idyll.
The facilities are clean, hot showers, good restaurant with cheapish prices (Modello is 20 pesos a can – and refreshingly cold) and camping is 50 peso per night per person.
A great place to come and relax and re-centre, mor soon from San Cristobel. x
