  In Central America, native bromeliads are an alternative for productive diversification in coffee plantations; however, first, a census in each area should be carried out and inventories must be up-dated. During 2004 and 2005, field explorations were carried out in the Soconusco region, on the Mexico/Guatemala border, in order to collect live specimens and to create a reference collection of plants in the University (UNACH, Universidad Autónoma de Chiapas, Tapachula). To verify if the collected species were native or not, an ethnobotanical study was carried out, with semi-structured interviews applied to people from the visited communities; the information was then compared with the literature. The study revealed few uses of native bromeliads. To date, we have 186 accessions which had been characterized and classified in 6 genera and 29 species. This number of species comprises only 22.8% of the bromeliads of Chiapas, but represents a high density of species (3.113 species/1000 km2). Most of the accessions are from middle altitudes (500-1500 m.a.s.L.). We present the first inventory of the flora Bromeliaceae for the region of Soconusco.
