The "Coffee Route" is one of the most fascinating alternative tourism experiences in Chiapas. Travelers have to cross the jungle to arrive at Irlanda, Argovia, Hamburgo or La Chiripia, four coffee producers with facilities for visitors.

In and around them you can practice trekking, observation and identification of flora and fauna, mountain biking, horseback riding as well as learning about coffee production.

The farms are regularly located at an altitude ranging from 600 and 1250 meters (1950 and 4,100 feet), with a cool climate. These are three of the oldest coffee farms in the state:

Finca Irlanda

Apart from coffee, Finca Irlanda also produces cocoa, cardamom and honey. It was the first farm to obtain the organic-biodynamic certificate, in 1967, by Germany's Demeter Bund of Germany.

Finca La Chiripa

Since 1930 Chiripa produces the gourmet coffee variety known as Maragogipe. It protects 20 hectares of tropical rainforest and is surrounded by beautiful landscapes.

Finca Santo Domingo

A beautiful town used by the inhabitants of Soconusco to cool off. In ancient times it was a tributary to the Aztecs. It has vestiges of buildings of the nineteenth century.
