Tonina is an ancient Maya city near Ocosingo in Chiapas. In its day it rivaled Palenque in power. Only discovered in the late 20th century, it provides a great opportunity to see an ancient Maya ruin without being overcrowded with tourists.
Take a colectivo from the Ocosingo market (US$1) in 3a Av. Sur Ote, four blocks east (downhill) of the plaza.
- Hike the ruins
- Visit the museum (quite nicely done)
There are a few restaurants near the ruins.
There are several acceptable hotels in Ocosingo on the main plaze. The best seems to be Hotel Central.
