Chiapas is a well know place in Mexico, it is better known for the Zapatista uprising but it is now becoming recognised as one of the best places to visit on a holiday to Mexico. It is Mexico’s most southern state and for those people fortunate enough to have visited they have discovered that it is a magical place that never stops surprising you.
If you want to hit the road less travelled then head down to Chiapas. Here are 5 places that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
This isn’t the largest of the Mayan ruins that are on offer but in my opinion it is certainly one of the more fascinating ruins that you will see. I would go as fares saying that Palenque is not only one of the top reasons to to visit the state of Chiapas, but it is one of the best reasons to visit Mexico itself! If you’re like me then you will end up changing your flight and booking a few more nights in the hotel, trust me when I say that it’s worth the extra cost!
San Juan Chamula
This place is a must see because it is one of the largest indigenous communities on the planet, it has a population of just over 60,000 people. This I think is travelling in it’s truest form, everything here is so basic and world’s apart from being back home. Of course there are some developed areas but this is a real eye opener!
San Cristobal de las Casas
If you want it all then this magnificent colonial city has it! You have everything you need to have an amazing time; busy markets, unique cafes, beautiful churches, memorising museums and of course a great climate!
