El Chifl贸n - Other Activity Comitan De Dominguez - Mexico

El Chifl贸n is a series of waterfalls that are a 30 minute drive from Comit谩n. The falls are one of Chiapas鈥 biggest sources of pride, and are certainly impressive, although be sure you bring a change of clothes, as the spray is also out to get your attention. You can swim in the pool at the bottom, although it鈥檚 often muddy and unappealing looking. Better to bring a picnic, or a barbecue if you want to push the boat out, as there are small huts and barbecue areas all around the reserve. There are spectacular views from the top of the walkway over the surrounding countryside, although be sure to bring good shoes and lots of energy!

El Chifl贸n is near the Tenam Puente ruins so it鈥檚 a good idea to combine the two into one trip. To get here, you can either book a tour through one of the agencies in Comit谩n or San Cristobal (which can include Lagos de Montebello and Tenam Puente for around $25) or take a bus from the Comit谩n bus terminal. Autob煤ses de Coentepeques and Transportes de la Angostura both go to El Chifl贸n.
