General Info

Journey approximately 45 minutes to the ancient Maya ruins of Izapa. From its beginnings as a small village, around 1500 BC, Izapa grew into the region’s most influential cultural and commercial center with a population of up to 10,000 people at the height of its influence, between 60 BC and AD 100. Many believe it may be the site of origin of the sacred Mayan Calendar. See the famous Maya Tree of Life stone — an important icon of the Mayan story of creation.

Discover the culturally diverse city of Tapachula, whose history is based on Maya and Mestizo heritage but also shows Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, and French influence.
