Travel Tips for San Cristóbal de Las Casas
Huitepec Natural Reserve
the nature reserve is just a short 10 minute taxi ride from San Cristobal. there is a two km Long Trail of those who would like to get a break from cities and towns. However, I wouldn't this this as a "must do" because there didn't seem to be as much flora and fauna as promised, and the climb is definitely steep. Avoid on wet/rainy days.
Admission fee is about USD 3.50
View On San Cristobal
Short walk south-east from the center is the Cerro De San Cristoba. This is a small hill, topped by a church (Iglesia De San Cristobal). From here you have a great view an is worth the little effort.
But the church was closed when I was there.

"City of Churches"
SC lies at 2100 metres in the centre of Chiapas. It has many, many churches and a colourful market. People from all the villages around come to the markets.
"Dia de la Revolucion"
On Novembre 20th the Mexicans celebrate the Revolution's Day. Then there are Military Parades in the big cities. I have not seen any of those. In many cities it is also custom, that the children have their own parade. I incidentely came across the parade of the kindergarten-kids. That has been one day before the main parade.
