Mexico destinations
Southeast of the Republic of Mexico you can find the city of San Cristóbal de las Casas, cultural and tourism capital of the State of Chiapas. Surviving time and enriching its urban outline with aesthetic evolution of successive times a city is born whose constructions with particular forms and style give life to one of the most beautiful tourism destination in the country: San Cristóbal de las Casas.

This colonial city still conserves its plazas, cobble stoned streets, red roof tiles and the traditional markets where you will fine indigenous communities in the region offering the visitor typical ceramics or its traditional colorful textiles.

San Cristóbal does not only stand out for its colonial neighborhood, it also has important examples of religious architecture. The Cathedral, whose construction began in 1537, obtained its current facade with baroque in the 18th century. The Merced Church, that presents a pure neoclassic style, holds in its interior parts of the construction and original 16th century decoration.

The large city overflows with cultural options: house museum, coffee galleries, libraries and an art course that takes place using amber where local artists exhibit their talents and creativity in original pieces.

This enchanting site in addition to being an excellent destination by itself is an ideal starting point to connect with small and picturesque towns that surround the town. San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan, land of tzotziles, surprises its visitors with its simple temples and its religious ceremony practiced by the group. These excursions complements the experience of diversity that makes Chiapas an incomparable place. History and culture are the same in San Cristóbal de las Casas.
