Chiapas is one Mexico’s most fantastic destinations. It is a state brimming with enchanting towns and cities that offer an unrivalled cultural experience, along with natural places that are true paradises. And it is the Montebello Lakes National Park along with El Chiflon waterfalls, two of its most spectacular spots.

On this private day trip, one of our expert guides will meet you at San Cristobal de las Casas. Thereon, you’ll depart towards the Chiflón waterfalls. Here, you can get to the highest point of the peak, to get the best views of the Bridal Veil cascade. But no matter where you are, you’ll enjoy the refreshing breeze of these waterfalls. And you’ll get breathtaking sceneries of this water paradise.

After taking in the beauty of the cascades, our expert guide will take you to the Montebello Lakes. This National Park is catalogued as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Here, you’ll appreciate the different lakes with its crystal clear waters and different shades of blue. Due to the type of soil at the bottom of the lakes, along with its vegetation, there’s a unique refraction of light that creates these unique palette. The Montebello Lakes are famous for these colors, that range from violet to blue and from turquoise to emerald. Furthermore, you’ll get to see and learn about the local flora and fauna. Some of the species you can find here include orchids and bromeliads, as well as different trees like palmillos, juniper, sapodilla and cedar.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
