San Cristobal de las Casas

In the central highlands of Chiapas, San Cristobal del as Casas serves as the nerve center of the region’s indigenous communities who live in the mountain towns throughout the region.

On the surface, the beauty of San Cristobal is its colonial heritage. Beautiful churches, cobblestone streets and low-rise pastel buildings surround the walkable historic center of town.

The city is home to the Centro de Textiles del Mundo Maya, displaying historic and modern indigenous textiles in their full glory. It’s worth picking up an authentic souvenir as well.

Much of the magic of San Cristobal stems from the surrounding natural beauty. Take a boat ride into Sumidero Canyon or a tour of El Chiflon Waterfalls and Lagunas de Montebello National Park.
