My name is Erika and I am 18 years old. This blog is based on tourism!

You should know how to live life, thanking every moment. To learn, to make mistakes, and to suffer is a part of life, but we also have great and unforgettable moments. There is something to venture and to always find out. I want to help you understand that you must discover and experience new places!

The park is located in the centre of the city, Tapachula. There is a covered area where musical events, dances, exhibitions, and other types of cultural events are held.


Museo de Tapachula

On the front there is a huge clock, brought by Porfirio Díaz from France in the 19th century and which maintains in original pieces. The main objective of the museum is to recognize the trajectory and significance of this Mexican city, located where the nation begins.

Once you have arrived at Boca del Cielo, you have to cross a stream of small diversions, aboard a boat, to finally reach the bar. The latter is an arm of land that appears between the estuary and the waters of the Pacific Ocean. On this site there are cabins where tourists can stay. They are very simple but clean and comfortable cabins.
