Reasons to Visit

San Cristobal & Sumidero Canyon

Laid-back San Cristóbal de las Casas is nestled in a fertile valley in the south-east of Mexico, amid pine forests, traditional farmland and mountains (best appreciated from the lookout at Templo de San Cristobal). Its atmospheric narrow cobbled streets are lined with colourful facades and beautiful colonial architecture, with Baroque and Moorish influences visible in the cathedral. The town is close to several traditional hillside villages in which indigenous customs and crafts are feircely defended, these can be visited in short trips, or alternatively you can look out for their inhabitants when they come to San Cristóbal to sell their handicrafts in the colourful market.
