Arcotete, his name owes it to a dramatic well-known history of the state of Chiapas, which tells that the French soldier Jean Françoise D’Arcotete was in love with a beautiful lady from San Cristobal, but knowing that it would not correspond to him and, on the contrary, He was about to contract nuptials, he decided to end his life near the cave where an underground river crosses. Since then, the sharpest stone that simulates a face at the bottom of the cave is the image of Jean Françoise D’Arcotete who left his country and his life for a woman. The natives of the area say that the ghost of Arcotete appears on the nights of February, sitting on one of the rocks at the entrance of the cave, crying for his beloved.
