San Cristobal de las Casas
With a complex colonial and indigenous history, San Cristobal de las Casas combines colourful colonial churches and cobbled streets with a rich indigenous cultural heritage showcased in the traditional Tzotzil and Tzeltal villages of the surrounding hills. Set in a pine-swathed highland valley, the city is within reach of important Mayan sites such as Bonampak, Yaxchilan and Palenque.
Alongside these staggering archaeological remains, San Cristobal de las Casas is surrounded by extraordinary landscapes with the turquoise blue waters of the Agua Azul waterfalls and the verdant rainforest of the Lacandon Jungle.
