This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Lacanja, Lacanja, Southern Mexico
The Lacandon Jungle is located in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. The region is populated by the Lacandon Mayan people, hence its name. At the beginning of 1990, the jungle had approximately 200,000 people distributed among 200 indigenous communities (Tojolabales, Choles, Tzeltales, Tzotziles, among others) .1 This became notorious with the appearance of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation in 1994.
The vegetation cover in the Lacandon Forest is highly diverse at the level of species, communities and ecosystems. In particular, the Lacandon Community shows one of the largest extensions in the country of high evergreen forests, one of the most complex and diverse ecosystems known, but at the same time, one of the most vulnerable and fragile to human manipulation.
