Welcome to Lacanjá Chansayab
Lacanjá Chansayab, the largest Lacandón Maya village, is 6km from San Javier on the Carretera Fronteriza, and 12km from Bonampak. Its family compounds are scattered around a wide area, many of them with creeks or even the Río Lacanjá flowing past their grassy grounds. Tourism is now an important income earner, and many families run campamentos with rooms, camping and hammock space. As you approach the village, you’ll cross the Río Lacanjá on a bridge, from which it’s about 700m to a central intersection where tracks go left (south), right (north) and straight (west).
