San Cristobal de las Casas is one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico. Surrounded by mountains covered in pine forest, its historic center can be seen in half a day with slow walks down cobblestone streets, up staircases to hilltop churches, and through its massive public market, where you will reenter the “real” Chiapas, which lacks the polish of mass tourism and foreign-owned businesses common elsewhere in Mexico.

Palenque, an ancient Mayan city in the jungle at the foot of mountains, is about five hours away. It’s one of the greatest excavated Mayan sites, as good or better than its more famous neighbor Chichén Itzá, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Many people prefer Palenque because of its jungle setting, where streams bubble and howler monkeys howl.


Though these two places are the highlights of Chiapas, there’s a lot more to the state, including Mayan villages like San Juan Chamula, the enormous Sumidero Canyon, Zoomat (with animals exclusively from Chiapas), the remote and rustic beach Boca del Cielo, the colonial town of Comitán, and the multicolored Montebello Lakes. The guide includes directions and travel tips for all of these places.
