The Port of Chiapas is a port in Puerto de San Benito in the Soconusco region in the southern portion of the Mexican state of Chiapas. The port entrance lies about 13 kilometres northwest of the mouth of the Suchiate River which is the international boundary between Mexico and Guatemala. Puerto de San Benito is connected by Highway 225 to Tapachula International Airport and the city of Tapachula. Since its opening in 1975 the port has been a small fishing and agricultural transport center. Upgrades carried out in 2005 and since by the government have added facilities for cruise ships and more heavy cargo. Governor Juan Sabenas has promoted development of the port in the hopes it will attract business to Chiapas, currently the poorest state in Mexico. Ships of the Holland America Line, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, and Oceania Cruises now stop in Puerto Chiapas.

Tapachula, Chiapas

Located at 14.75, -92.38 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 13 mi away.
More reading: Tapachula, Chiapas homepage

Tapachula is a town and municipality located in the far southwest of the state of Chiapas in Mexico, near the Guatemalan border and the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the most important cities of Chiapas economically as the capital of the agriculturally rich Soconusco region as well as port for trade between Mexico and Central America. The area was originally inhabited by the Mame-Maya as a region under the control of the Mame state of Xelaju but was first established as a city by the Aztecs in the 13th century. Most of its economic importance has come since the late 19th century with the establishment of coffee plantations. This agricultural production began a history of migration into the area which continues to this day and has left the city with a significant Asian and German cultural presence as well as large Mayan and Nahua indigenous populations.

This attraction is classified as:

  • Municipalities of Chiapas
  • Populated places in Chiapas
