... got back to the reception we had to go back up to the highway to wave down a cab, it didn't take to long and we were in a cab on our way back. After another half hour in the cab we were back in the city, we got money and a drink and went to the hotel. We got our bags and got in another cab to the bus station.

After made a trip to a near by waterfall that flows out of a cliff face from an underground ...
... that day - like a kid at a show I had tacos, icecream, beer, tamales, you name it, I bought it! Again - the whole day (including 2 hours of transport) cost me about 20 bucks. Good for the budget! Chiapa de Corzo is set on a river/beach/lake type thing, with boats to some waterfalls being a big tourist attraction. I chose the cheaper option of walking along the beach and arriving at a section to dip my feet in, which was a semi mistake as I ...
