The journey soared to new heights as a hot air balloon carried me over the Teotihuacan Pyramids at sunrise. The awe-inspiring view was followed by a ground-level exploration of this archaeological marvel, with its grand pyramids and historical significance. The Teotihuacan hot air balloon adventure ride to Chiapas revealed a different facet of Mexico’s cultural tapestry, with a visit to the Palenque archaeological site, trekking through lush landscapes, and discovering the enchanting Agua Azul and Misol Ha waterfalls.

In the heart of Chiapas, I delved into the traditions of San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan. These indigenous communities opened their doors, sharing their customs, shamanic practices, and vibrant artisanal creations. The adventure continued with a trek to the Chiflón waterfall and a visit to the captivating Lagos de Montebello, where nature painted a mesmerizing canvas of colors and reflections.

A workshop with local artisans Vicente and Juana provided insights into the intricate world of pottery. The journey, arranged by a travel agency software, then took a thrilling turn with a boat ride through the imposing Cañon de Sumidero, where towering cliffs and a deep river canyon left me in awe. Transitioning to the tropical paradise of Cancún, the underground river at Hotel Manglex and the crystal museum showcased the region’s extraordinary natural beauty.
