bus travel from Oaxaca to San Cristobal

by edwart

Which bus line serves the Oaxaca to San Cristobal route? Any interesting towns in route for a possible overnight rest stop and look-around. How many hours does it take? Any on-line schedules or information.

I can't remember which bus company I took, but it was a first class bus.. maybe several even go there.. Actually, I didn't go straight to San Cristobal, we took an overnight bus to Tuxtla Guttierez.. got there very early and took a combi to Chiapa de Corzo where we went for a ride in Canion del Sumidieron.. then back to Tuxtla and to San Cristobal that after-noon.. that's the stop off we made on that route..

Hope I've been of use, if any more questions just ask..

RE: bus travel from Oaxaca to San Cristobal

by gomexico

Omnibuses Cristobal Colon and ADO GL are the two principal companies offering first-class bus service on the Oaxaca > las Casas route. Made in one journey, the trip takes about 13 hours, oftentimes longer. Many people (including myself) break the trip into at least two segments with at least a stop in the Chiapas capital of Tuxtla Gutierrez (I also like to stop in Salina Cruz and on the Istmus). The Lonely Planet and Moon guidebooks to Mexico give some suggestions about what to see/do and where to stay/eat along that route, you might want to have a look at what one or both say. Bus schedules available online are deceiving (www.ticketbus.com.mx) because they show just evening/overnight departures. Actually, you can depart Oaxaca at just about any hour of the day - just look for busses destined for Salina Cruz and/or Tuxtla and change busses at one or both of those locations for the onward journey to las Casas.

One additional comment: busses departing Oaxaca for las Casas do so from the "First Class" terminal (often referred to as "Terminal ADO"). There's a second terminal close to the Central de Abastos (central market) on the other side of town - but that's for second-class service destined for other areas of the state.

Travel Tips for San Cristóbal de Las Casas

Remember your rain coat

by Maggs187

San Cristobal was a great little town to visit on our journey through Southern Mexico. We stayed at a little posada, passed time in the evening at the cafes, walked through the rain and went on a tour to the two most prominent Indiginous tribes in San Cristobal. I would have to say that the tour was the most amazing adventure of the trip. We met a man in the front of the Cathedral who brought us to the tribes to experience how life was there. IT WAS AMAZING, we got to enter into homes and see how they are. We were able to visit the churc hand watch how they prayed (this was a big deal because these tribes took religion and prayer very seriously). We also got to visit the local market and walk around the town. One house allowed for our group to enter as she was cooking fresh tortillas in her house. She served the warm tortillas with crushed pumpkin seeds....yummy! The best part was the group was able to taste a very potent liquor that is special to that tribe called Posch. The liquor is so strong that the men who drink to much of it eventually become blind! It was very stong and I could only handle one shot :)

Palenque

by darthmilmo

I visited the infamous ruins of Palenque not as a daytrip from San Cristobal de las Casas, but by spending a night over there. Some people offer tours to see Palenque on a long trip from San Cristobal. Honestly, I’d say spend a night over there. The site is huge! Its definitely one of the best Mayan sites out there. I loved the palace, which had an amazing tower. The temple of the inscriptions is amazing as well. Among the other kewl areas is the plaza of the cross, which houses several nice temples. Check out my Palenque page for more information.

Iglesia De Santa Lucia

by Enzyme_X

When architect Carlos Flores came to San Cristobal at the end of 19th century, he found ruins of a destroyed chapel on this place and decided to build a new church. In the 1884 works were compilted. And the result is neo-classical church with one nave with pilasters and arches. The presbytery is gothic with some art-nouveau and neo-classical elements.

Colonial town of San Cristóbal de las Casas

by AnnaLupilla

"Feels like coming home again ..."

"Year after year out on the road
It´s great to be here to see you all
I know, for me it is like
Coming home" - The Scorpions

"I'm not that amused ..."

First time I've been here was december 2003, and to be true I was a tiny little bit shocked to see poverty and so many poor people ... indígenas ... all around. Also I was thinking that chiapanecos are not really amongst the most sexy people of Mexico. Well ... things have changed a little ... San Cristóbal de las Casas is a delight: a tranquil colonial town with a rich arquitectural heritage, and terrific cafés and restaurants, surrounded by traditional Maya villages.

The town seems to have been a favorite travelers' haunt for decades. It's a pleasure to spend time here: exploring the cobbled streets and markets, visiting nearby indigenous villages and absorbing the unique, relaxed ambience. San Cristóbal has a bohemian, artsy, floating community of Mexicans and foreigners, a lively bar and music scene and wonderfully clear highland light. There is a terrific selection of accomodations at all price levels, and a cosmopolitan array of cafés and restaurants. All in all, it´s easy to see why San Cristóbal is many people´s favorite Mexican town.
