After pickup at your hotel in San Cristóbal or Tuxtla Gutiérrez, head out of town in your air-conditioned transport and enjoy the scenic beauty of the tree-covered hills as your guide provides details on the ecosystem. When you arrive at Encuentro Ecotourism Park, listen to a briefing on proper zipline procedures. The three incredible ziplines in the park are a thrill a second. At up to 656 feet (200 meters) long and 164 feet (50 meters) from the ground, they are long enough to make you feel like you have superhuman flying powers. Soar over the canopy of trees and wildlife, above rivers and through canyons in the most beautiful part of Chiapas.
Keep your eyes open for some of the indigenous wildlife in the area; flying squirrels could be soaring right along with you while skunks and iguanas scurry below. Several species of birds might be in your airspace or lurking in the coniferous forest, including chachalacas, mountain trogons, hummingbirds and pink-headed warblers.
Youll have free time to explore the park on foot as well. Afterward, relax on the drive back to San Cristóbal or Tuxtla Gutiérrez, with drop-off at your hotel.
