If I had a pound for everytime that someone told me to visit this beautiful town in the region of Chiapas, I'd have enough for a slap up meal.
The other thing we noticed almost immediately about San Cristobal was how COLD it was ! It was bloomin' freezing compared to Tulum and we'd only been there half a day when it began to rain. Now, I had been commenting to Rob that I kind of missed the rain, well different weather in general as we'd been literally dripping with sweat for about two weeks, but as soon as it started to rain I realised that I would rather it didn't thank you very much.
We managed to get to Chamula and back in one piece as you can probably tell... just!
Even though I'm very glad to have visited San Cristobal, I was very disappointed at how yuppyish the town had become. Everywhere we looked we saw travellers who had clearly put down roots in San Cristobal and were vying for trade with the indigenous locals from tourists, which to me basically means taking the food from their mouths. Even so it is a beautiful and much loved town in a very picturesque area and well worth a visit.
