Chiapas has a coastline along the Pacific Ocean to the south. In the north, in the area bordering Tabasco, near Teapa, rainfall can average more than 3,000 mm (120 in) per year.
In the past, natural vegetation in this region was lowland, tall perennial rainforest, but this vegetation has been almost completely cleared to allow agriculture and ranching.
The first coat of arms of the region dates from 1535 as that of the Ciudad Real (San Cristóbal de las Casas).
Chiapas painter Javier Vargas Ballinas designed the modern coat of arms.
It is also home to one of the largest indigenous populations in the country with twelve federally recognized ethnicities.The first military incursion was headed by Luis Marín, who arrived in 1523.For three years, Marín was able to subjugate a number of the local peoples, but met with fierce resistance from the Tzotzils in the highlands.This is three hundred years before the Mayans developed their calendar. During the pre Classic era, it is known that most of Chiapas was not Olmec, but had close relations with them, especially the Olmecs of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.Olmec-influenced sculpture can be found in Chiapas and products from the state including amber, magnetite, and ilmenite were exported to Olmec lands.
It is not known what ended the civilization but theories range from over population size, natural disasters, disease, and loss of natural resources through over exploitation or climate change.
