Puerto Chiapas (Mexico) cruise port

Since its opening in 1975, Port Chiapas has been a tiny agricultural and fishing transport center. Upgrades carried out since 2005 by the government have added cruise ships and heavy cargo facilities. Governor Juan Sabines Guerrero ordered port's development in the hopes it would attract business to Puerto Chiapas, currently the poorest Mexican state. Ships of RSSC-Regent Seven Seas, Oceania, NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line and Holland America Line currently arrive in Port Chiapas.

There is little of interest to cruise passengers in the immediate vicinity of Puerto Chiapas. As one leaves the dock, there is a craft market, but the nearest city of Tapachula is a few miles inland. Port's eastern horizon is dominated by Volcan Tacana and a number of biological reservations and ruins are accessible from it.
