Leaving Cancun and the beautiful Costa Maya we flew over green mountains and farmlands and one hour later landed in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas.
Cancun’s Terminal 2 handles domestic flights within Mexico. I was surprised at how large, crowded and busy it was. In comparison, the Tuxtla Gutiérrez airport was small, quick and easy.
Waiting for us was the taxi we had reserved through our hotel who gave us an exciting 45 minute taxi ride to Chiapa de Corzo and the Ceiba Hotel. Within a few minutes of checking in we headed out looking for something to eat.
Chiapa del Corzo
- Temperature scans were taken entering the Cancun terminal and on arrival to the Tuxtla Gutiérrez terminal.
- We were required to complete an online Health Questionaire at the Cancun airport as well as a paper one for contact tracing on arrival to Tuxtla Gutiérrez as well as being asked about our vaccine status.
- We entered a church service and greeters took our temperature, then we were sprayed with something (!) and given hand sanitizer. Chairs were set up 5 feet apart.
- Masks are worn by everyone, even outdoors, and required to enter businesses. The antibacterial gel is everywhere and is set to to operate by foot pump. How ingenious!
Chiapa de Corzo is the gateway to Sumidero Canyon National Park. It’s so much easier to take this excursion from here rather than San Cristobal de las Casas and save hours traveling back and forth on the windy roads.
There wasn’t much to Chiapa de Corzo and we were extremely weary of the heat, humidity and bug bites so we left with great expectations for the higher elevations of San Cristóbal de las Casas where we’ll meet you next time!
Thanks so much for reading!
