Jungle

Mexico has one of the most beautiful jungles of the world, in the south of the country, and one of the most important ones due to its historical past, since it was there where the principal pre-Hispanic cultures of Middle America developed.

The tropical jungles of the states of Chiapas, Campeche, Oaxaca, Quintana Roo, Tabasco and Veracruz have great similarity with the so called "Amazon rain forests" or the African jungles. Mexico's most exuberant rain forest is Selva Lacandona in Chiapas which, along with the rain forest of the Petén in Guatemala, is part of the largest rain forest area to the north of the Amazon. 330,000 hectares of the Montes Azules biosphere reserve, in the heart of the Lacandonia, possess at least half of the existing rainforests in Mexico.

The country also offers areas similar to the jungles of Indochina in certain coastal areas of the states of Jalisco, Nayarit, Campeche, Guerrero and Oaxaca. Mexico also offers an abundant subtropical forest composed by bushes and trees of medium size, similar to the savanna of Africa.

Mexico has all the jungles of the world in its territory. This is a unique setting for action and adventure: lights, camera, roll it....
