About San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico
Set in a gorgeous highland valley surrounded by pine forest, the colonial city of San Cristóbal has been a popular travelers’ destination for decades. It’s a pleasure to explore San Cristóbal’s cobbled streets and markets, soaking up the unique ambience and the wonderfully clear highland light. This medium-sized city also boasts a comfortable blend of city and countryside, with restored century-old houses giving way to grazing animals and fields of corn.
As a cultural centre, San Cristobal also boasts an excellent food and shopping scene. The region is particularly famous for its vibrant hand-made textiles. High end products can be found in Eklektik or try and pick up a bargain at the textile market in front of Iglesia Santo Domingo. Restaurant Lum serves up top quality and seasonal products that are inspired by Mexican and global flavors in a refined atmosphere. A local favourite, No Name Quesadilla, offers up a range of rotating dishes served up in beautiful home made corn tortilla.
Surrounded by dozens of traditional villages, San Cristóbal is at the heart of one of the most deeply rooted indigenous areas in Mexico. A great base for local and regional exploration, it’s a place where ancient customs coexist with modern luxuries. A stay here is not complete without a guided tour of the unique indigenous villages of Chamula and Zinacantan to learn about their laws and customs.
