Metzabok Tourist Center

Metzabok Lagoon is located in the eastern mountains of the state of Chiapas, in the Lacandon Jungle, in the municipality of Ocosingo. It was decreed in 1998 as a natural flora and fauna protection area in order to contribute to the use and conservation of the area's natural resources; there is a population of less than 100 inhabitants of the Lacandona ethnic group that is dedicated to protecting the area's flora and fauna and preserving their ancestral uses and customs.
The interaction and coexistence with the descendants of the Mayan culture, has resulted in this place being sought after by nature lovers and the mysticism of the Mayan rituals that are performed on special dates, without forgetting the beauty of the lagoon and the greenery of the high jungle.
