San Cristobal

A highland town in Chiapas at the heart of a remote area that is still home to Tzotzil and Tzeltal villages. The Zapatista movement is still in evidence here.

Arts and crafts

San Cristobal is a great place to stock up on presents to take back home (or keep for yourself!). The crafts market around Templo de Santo Domingo is a good place to start.
