 Villahermosa Tabasco and Palenque Chiapas, Mexico Local Time


TABASCO & CHIAPAS

You may be familiar with Mexico's beach resorts on the Pacific or the Mayan Riviera, but real Mexico is so much more than that.

To start, did you know its pyramids and artifacts rival Egypt's? And it has villages where culture has not changed for 100's of years.

You can escape to a sacred forest and be cleansed by a Maya Shaman. Or, spend time in an eco-lodge run by present-day Maya.

Mexico's oldest ruins, some still covered by jungle growth, are found in the state of Tabasco. Shortly after landing in the rainforest city of Villahermosa, Tabasco you will see huge Olmec heads dating back from 1500 BC.

The area also features original Maya cuisine, with herbs, spices and produce only found in this part of Mexico.

The world's first cocoa beans originated here. They were used as currency by the Maya and Aztec. The beans were also crushed, mixed with water and enjoyed as exclusive drinks of the gods by Maya and Aztec rulers.

In Tabasco and Chiapas, early Mesoamerican cultures developed into the great culture of the Maya, and present-day visitors can see Maya ruins, carvings, hieroglyphs and the Maya calendar. Visitors can learn about Maya indigenous medicine and see original medicinal gardens with healing plants planted centuries ago.

And, you'll walk on cobblestones streets in some of the most beautiful colonial towns in the Americas. Many are designated UNESCO world heritage centers.

Come, discover Tabasco and Chiapas with us. The beauty, culture and magic will amaze you.
