MORE
The State of Chiapas is composed by 15 regions, within them the Soconusco, which is considered an important historical, cultural and economic region of Chiapas. It is located in the extreme south of the state, on the border with Guatemala. Due to its geographical position, it has been of great importance in communication and trade between the highlands of Central Mexico and Central America. After the rupture of the union between the Central American provinces and Mexico, Soconusco was disputed by Mexico and Guatemala until the borders between the two countries were definitively established and the province of Soconusco was incorporated into the State of Chiapas.
