Comitán Domingues is another city designated Pueblo Magico by the Mexican Tourism Bureau. A lovely Colonial city with forward thinking leaders, it has a modern art museum, many public sculptures scattered throughout the city, an excellent museum with artifacts from nearby Chinkultic and Tenam Puente, restaurants that specialize in Chiapanecan cuisine, and friendly courteous people. A relatively prosperous and clean city, the Zócalo has public WiFi, tourist "cops" in uniform jackets stuffed with brochures, and coffee shops that serve locally grown organic coffee. It is a popular Mexican tourist destination, but is not often visited by English speakers, hence it is culturally a very Mexican city.
El Chiflón means The Whistle. At the top, the falls are so high, when the wind blows through the water it whistles. The park is a popular local weekend hangout for the heat-weary with its cool turquoise water and many shallow areas for swimming and playing. A short but scary zip-line provides plenty of thrills as it crosses over the river canyon in front of the falls.
