Lagunas de Montebello

Laguna de Montebello located in the magnificent Lagunas de Montebello National Park near the Guatemala border in the southern Mexico state of Chiapas is truly a wonder. Deep, clear, teal colored water offsets a ring of beautiful nature filled mountains. You can hire traditional Lacandon log boats to take you out to explore the small islands in the lake. A ride on these boats feels remarkably stable and is a peaceful way to spend an afternoon.

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.
