pictures from a cruise – part six – Puerto Chiapas

This is our last stop in southern Mexico before sailing on to points further south.  Puerto Chiapas is almost in Central America on Mexico’s Pacific coast.

Information provided by the cruise ship in this picture.

This next view must be from a visitor center or other public building.  The southern portion of Mexico’s Pacific coast does, from time to time, get hit by severe tropical storms.  (Acapulco suffered serious damage and loss of life from a severe storm this past summer.)

There are a few more installments for this photo series, including pictures from the Panama Canal.  Next, we sail to Centro America for a port of call.  If the mood takes us, we may interrupt the series temporarily for a thematic essay.  (Do not be surprised if we do.)

Thanks for reading/viewing.
