OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN SAN CRISTOBAL DE LAS CASAS

SUMIDERO CANYON

A Sumidero Canyon boat tour is the quintessential day trip to take from San Cristobal de las Casas. This is an extremely beautiful place, which involves a 2-hour ride through the impressive Sumidero Canyon. As you travel deeper and deeper, you’ll notice the looming canyon walls seem to grow higher and higher.

EXPLORE THE CITY ON FOOT

Yet perhaps the best thing to do in San Cristobal de las Casas is to stroll along the many pedestrian-friendly streets and simply soak it all in. The main pedestrian thoroughfare is Real de Guadalupe. This central walkway is always bustling with local life and lined with some great restaurants and cafes.

EL CHIFLON WATERFALL

El Chiflon is a stunningly blue series of cascades that culminates with the enormous Velo de Novia waterfall, plunging a dramatic 120 meters. While walking up a path on the bank of the Rio San Vincente for about a kilometre you’ll inevitably hear the roar of this massive waterfall grow louder and louder.
