This is a very beautiful laguna and place to stay (renting a hammoc or a tent, there are no bungalow or anything, only in the village of Emiliano Zapata where you start the 3km walk to the laguna). The problem is... to get there. We took a truck from Ocosingo, which took more than 6 hours, in the hard hard... More

I would like to provide more detailed information about this natural wonder. We travelled to Miramar from Comitán, where we stayed overnight. We visited El Chiflon that day, which I also recommend. First you need to get collectivo from Comitan to Las Margaritas which was around 20 pesos per person. From where you have to take collectivo to Emiliano Zapata.... More

It is amazing. A great lake in the middle of the Lacandona jungle (what is left of it) and Biosfere Reserve. It´s not easy to get there, it takes a day to get there and another to go back to wherever you want to go. You may get there by car, boat (part of the experience) or plane (got a... More

The lake itself is gorgeous, clear, warm water surrounded my lush jungle covered hills and the sound of howler monkeys. It really is an untouched piece of paradise. The town of Emiliano Zapata was also very pleasant with two nice rivers and friendly people. Practical bit: We travelled to the Laguna from Comitan (itself a decent enough place to stay).... More

I have to say its been a while when I was there, so I don't know if the conditions are the same. First we had to get a very local transport to take us to a small village called Emiliano Zapata where there were some simple cabanas to stay overninght. next day morning we refused to hire a guide, left...

Mela Montoya's alternative tours are once in a lifetime experiences! she is an experienced and bilingual guide who is a great choice for those who dont want to be part of the packs of tourists that get impersonally and unconsciously rushed from attraction to attraction. I contacted her because I was interested in learning about pottery, and understood that the... More
