Photo: El Chiflón Falls in Chiapas, Mexico

Only a 30 minute drive from Comitan, Chiapas is one of Mexico’s highest and most impressive waterfalls, Cascada El Chiflón. At the top bright teal colored water rages almost 400 feet down a vertical limestone cliff and then continues in a series of peaceful cascades for close to a mile below the main fall. There are well maintained trails with picnic tables and even a few restaurants and cabins along the way. It is a beautiful sight. I just hope to return one day when the zip-lines are open!

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
