I am moving to Mcallen in the beginning of January to start a new job in Reynosa, MX.

You guys will have to show me the ropes!

Welcome! if you haven't ride before in México, well, we can start with short rides, check on my ride reports below "Ancon..." "Huasteca Monterrey", "Rayones..." to get an idea.

walking in San Cristobal is very relaxing, not counting the endless peddlers trying to sell you their art craft, is beautiful hand made art but they are so persistent. Well they are trying to make a living so I do not blame them. Actually is kinda sad to see many childs working very late at night selling stuff.

so we wandered all around right after book at the hotel, getting to know the place and trying to get a spot to have a nice drink and some entree.





several young guys living their dreams I guess, since they are up to what they can collect with their entertaining skills




I love antique doors











we sat for a drink at a nice place on the sidewalk bar




red red wine...

The colors of San Cristobal

walking thru the street market of San Cristobal is totally colorful, I got neck pain to be turning all ways looking at everything and trying to figure out what was it..

red chile




many bean types



spices



Cigars at 5 pesos each





dryied shrimp




Rambutan fruit



awesome and proudly wearing outfit






sheep skin to make Chamula outfits





fresh and ready for a soup






beautiful artcraft



we got into the deep of the local food market and everyone were staring at us since no foreingers were at there... only locals and the etnias






but the food was excellent

On to "EL CHIFLON" Waterfall - amazing

We left san Cristobal around 11:00 am and headed south to our next

stop. El Chiflon waterfall and from there keep riding to get to "Montebello Lakes"


the road is very curvy and really well mantained, just forget the topes. Topes is a must, is a souvenir, is a blended item with the daily living of the locals.. and what the heck, for the KLR's they are "topes mis guevos", they are like if they does not exists

a short stop to get some bread as snack (after a tope)







From road 190, we took the 101, then after las Rosas, took the 226 road.


a short leg streching stop






the area is still flooded at many road spots that we found ourselves on a part of the road totally blocked by this lagoon

(in the mean time we played some soccer)




So in order to keep going, we needed to take a dirt road detour, but guess what?....

it was gate guarded by the locals and there were a 10 pesos donation in order to let us thru.,,

hey! we needed some dirt road so we pay fast and went! nice, some mud and a single track road... but to short! only a couple miles and there we were again on the tarmac.


in the middle of this picture is a view of the Water Fall el chiflon seen from the road at some 6 miles of distance. The waterfall is massive once being right below, is impresive,




but first we needed some food.

I wanted to thank you for sharing these! I used to live there when I was a young man, for about 5 years. I lived in San Cristobal and then my family moved to San Pedro Chenalho. I left in 88, because my mom died (she is buried there.) Lucky me, if you consider the casualties of the rebellion. Anyways, looking at these picture me llenan de llanto. My mother and I went to that market often, and I remember the smell of dried shrimp, fresh guaraches, music, and food. Mi Padrino still lives there. I think I'll need to do an organized trip there someday, just like you guys. Again, keep the pictures coming if you have more, they're awesome. ¡Un million de gracias, reos!

Hey RayofSun,

thanks for come along on the RR.

The remembrances are more vivid and intense when are triggered by the smelling of those things related to a past event, and more when it was something very pleasant. I at least recall many things of the past when something in the air gets to my nose and in a flash it transports me years back, and like the cartoons, I get dragged and need to get to the source of the odor just to see it.

I spent one year of my life in Motozintla, near Tapachula. But it was also many many years ago. I was in elementary school back then.
