There is a shuttle service to Tapachula. You can purchase tickets ($10 pp return) right inside the large palapa-styled cruise terminal. Shuttles run all day from the cruise terminal in Puerto Chiapas to the central plaza of Tapachula. The trip takes about 40 minutes each way.
The park-like terminal consists of two buildings: one is home to the pier market, with several vendors selling their wares, as well as a performance space. The other building features a bar and restaurant, along with internet access.
Watch a destination video.
Just make it a relaxing day, as there are few sights around. A nice beach is close to the terminal. Or partake in a tour. Tapachula is somewhat run down and a little rough, not a destination in itself.
In addition to the shuttle to Tapachula, there are also other tour options available on arrival, including Chocolate City and Izapa Ruins.
