What is it that you can not miss if you go to San Cristobal? Walking, sit at one of the many squares and observing. One is not every day on the cutting edge of a revolution. There are alternative bars, concert halls, film forums, exhibitions, and a vibrant university community. All of these activities live in harmony with most of the residents of the state of Chiapas( one of the poorest in Mexico). Many of the poor indigenous communities adjacent to San Cristobal come here to sell their crafts, roast and sell corn (maize) or simply to beg. But, despite all this, there is an atmosphere of joy and an unparalleled social conscience. Being onstage streets of continuing protests against the central government and arguments in favor of Emiliano Zapata, having been the scene of bloody battles, not more than ten years ago. Despite all of this, I believe you'll want to return to San Cristobal, or at least stay a while. In my opinion, it is the most enjoyable city during my entire trip to Mexico.
The Tapachula boardwalk is one of the newer additions to this city. I went there to see how it is at night. The atmosphere is very great. You can go with friends and walk for awhile while appreciating the place and enjoying the fact that it gives you time to spend with family, friends, boyfriends, your dog, etc. Even for experiencing that climate. I swear that in Tapachula the kilos melt away quickly haha Here ... I have some photos for you to see.
Los Portales are situated in the heart of the city and here you can find a variety of shops and some cafes where you can relax or buy some shoes, souvenirs and other things, I remember that on my visit, we went to a cafe called Yik Coffee, I recommend it, especially to take a rest and have something.
