10 Reasons to Visit San Cristobal De Las Casas

Mexico, San Cristobal de las Casas Guide (B): 10 Reasons to Visit San Cristobal De Las Casas

After a long, long bus ride, the Mexican artist who had been my sole companion from Panajachel announced that we were finally arriving. Exhausted, I dragged myself from the main plaza to my hostel. Little did I know that I had reached the highlight of my trip- San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico. I had debated long and hard about coming this far. Yet, I wouldn’t have missed it for anything. Nor should you! Here’s why…

For those who don’t know it, Chiapas produces world class coffee. Being fond of a daily coffee or ten, this is a strong selling point for me. Coffee drinkers should try the Degustacion Especial at Carajillo (website in Spanish). Also, the coffee at Casa Cafeologo (website in Spanish) may be served without a smile, but it’s damn good. Alternatively, those who like to take their coffee in a friendlier, more homely environment will love the Cuban lady at Café del Arte (Facebook page). However you like your coffee, San Cristobal has you covered.

San Cristobal is a great base for further exploration in Chiapas. Looking for incredible scenery? Take a tour to Sumidero Canyon. Want to explore Mayan ruins? Take a tour toTonina or Palenque (yes, you can do a day trip from San Cristobal). Searching for truly unique cultural experiences? Let’s just say that you’ll never forget San Juan Chamula (more below). ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
