The lakes are beautiful. Lots of flowers, as well. Good camping at a couple of them. There are also some other lakes offering free camping. Ask the locals for the locations. They will share.

Most people visit this national park during a long day trip from San Cristóbal. It's worth the effort, as you pass the ceramic village of Amatenango and the Maya ruins of Chinkultic and see a nice part of Chiapas. The national park itself is not...More
