The Essential
Recommended
San Cristóbal de las Casas, on the high plateaux of Chiapas, attracts destitute Indians who come to sell their produce or wares (food and crafts); but tourists will love this pretty village with its still-active Zapatista past. The splendid Church of Santo Domingo and the Museo de la Medicina Maya are highlights as you stroll through the streets in the centre. Nearby Tzotzil and Tzeltal villages also offer a complete immersion in a region strongly influenced by its vibrant Indian traditions.
