When Mexico 🇲🇽 is mentioned, one place always seems to pop up - Cancun 🌁. But I'm not here to talk about Americanised cities and tourist traps😲. I'm here to talk about the state of Chiapas which is home to the Sumidero Canyon. This gaping gorge has walls over 1000m high, 13km in length and is best explored by boat 🛥️. Chapias is also the home to towns that still preserve their colonial architecture 🕍, with the bright and vivid colours! If ancient ruins is your thing then forget the crowded and overrsted Chichen Itza 🏯 and head for the more peaceful Palenque, Yaxchilan and Bonampak.
Mexico - it's more than just expensive resorts.
