Emiliano Zapata is a village in Chiapas in Mexico.

Get in[edit]

The jungle around Laguna Miramar

It is possible to get to Emiliano Zapata through the somewhat larger village of San Quentin.

Get around[edit]

Walking and maybe horseback

See[edit][add listing]

The Emiliano Zapata Rope Bridge
  • Laguna Miramar
  • There is a large pig farm on the outskirts of the village at the trail head for the lake.
  • Also on the way to the trail head there is a scary rope bridge over one of the two rivers in the village.

Do[edit][add listing]

  • Emiliano Zapata is the main starting point for a trip to Laguna Miramar.
  • The rivers that run through the village are quite warm and make for a nice swim after 6 hours in the back of a colectivo.

Buy[edit][add listing]

Emiliano Zapata has a limited supply of groceries. While the small shops don't have a great selection, they do have enough that you do not need to pack in a lot of food with you unless you particularly want to cook a special meal.

Eat[edit][add listing]

There are a few "restaurants" in the village. Each is a person's house with a large table where you are invited to wait while they cook something up for you in their kitchen (often times over an open fire). Prices vary, so ask before ordering.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Alcohol is allowed in the village so beer and tequila is widely available.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

Rooms for rent in Emiliano Zapata

The town has setup 6 small cottages and a communal palapa where visitors can sleep. The cottages have a tendency to attract cockroaches, tarantulas and scorpions so unless you really want to have a mattress, sleeping outside under the palapa is preferable.


There is no way to contact the village in advance to make reservations (either by email or by phone). Simple show up and ask for "El Presidente de Turismo."
