Outdoor Adventure on Your Holiday to San Cristobal
San Cristobal is one of the best areas in Mexico to enjoy eco and adventure travel and there are various operators who can help you to enjoy a spectacular outdoor travel experience in the region.
Many argue that the natural beauty of this area has no parallel in Mexico; deep green forested valleys, awesome waterfalls and high mountains with deep canyons and gorges, a colossal wealth of flora, fauna and wildlife and glorious lakes make this area one of Mexico’s most awesome natural habitats.
The city is also the best hub from which to explore the surrounding indigenous villages and the magnificent natural beauty for which Chiapas is known.
Chiapas is one of Mexico's (and the world's) premier coffee growing regions. If you like coffee, make sure you taste some local blends; they are organic and exceptional.
For a vantage point view of the city and it’s amazing surrounding areas, head to the Templo de San Cristobal and climb the steps of its tower. You'll need to be pretty fit to get to the top, but the views are worth it.
