Welcome to Tapachula Region
Often treated as a mere stepping stone between northern Guatemala and better known attractions elsewhere in southern Mexico, it's nevertheless well worth devoting a few days to the Tapachula area. This area is known for producing some of the best coffee in Mexico and a few of the coffee farms offer tours and boutique accommodations. Highlights elsewhere in the region include the pretty village of Santo Domingo, reaching for the clouds by climbing one of the tallest volcanoes in Mexico and exploring little known pre-Hispanic ruins. The regional capital, Tapachula, is a workaday town but makes for a convenient overnight stop.
