The Mexican Pacific Coast region
Located in Mexico’s southern region, Chiapas borders Tabasco to the north, Guatemala and the Pacific Ocean to the south and Veracruz and Oaxaca to the west.
Famous for its wide variety of festivities, traditions, crafts and cuisine, you’ll also find a lot of natural beauty in Chiapas at such places as Canon del Sumidero National Park, the Cascadas de Agua Azul Biosphere Reserve and the Montebello Lagoons.
There are also Mayan ruins, including those at Tonina, Bonampak, Yaxchilan and Palenque.
San Cristobal, Mexico
San Cristóbal de las Casas is a city and municipality located in the Central Highlands region of the Mexican state of Chiapas. It is not the political capital of the state, although it was until 1892, but it is still considered to be the “cultural capital.”
The municipality is mostly made up of mountainous terrain, but the city sits in a small valley surrounded by hills. The city’s center maintains its Spanish colonial layout and much of its architecture, with red tile roofs, cobblestone streets and wrought iron balconies often with flowers.
