  • Is a village charming magic, where Mexico's indigenous cultures are still preserved and leave themselves to sell products that produce, are colorful and nice clothing, it is a place where you can walk its streets finding many churches and museums, you can take a tour on a tourist tram for 70 pesos mex, variety of cuisine. This village is located 1 hour from the capital of Chiapas (Tuztla) the bus you better 80 pesos aprox mex

  • If you want to see an infinite wins of vivid colors, you must visit the San Cristobal handicraft market... but beware there are bad and good quality craftsmanship, attempts to ask many questions about where they shop and not be inspired by the most cheap.

  • I love to come to this place, why are all the flavours, colours and traditions of Chiapas, here the culture of all of its nearby villages is mixed and seems a market of barter, from vegetables, cheese, chicken, meats, seeds, species and seasonings, crafts, herbs, natural medicines, etc.

  • Very caring helpful people giving you best prices :) nice
  • Visit this place to really appreciate the life in Chiapas, I am mexican but I felt as a foreigner at this place. This place is for locals so don't expect shiny/fancy food stands. Enjoy a freshly made tortilla, a grilled corn on the cob, fresh fruit, etc. Great place to take pictures, but be respectful of the people, they are working and sometimes they don't like it
  • Sanjuan chamula
  • Amazing experience, v cool, all my senses were attacked in a good way, you get to see authentic mexico and its ppl here. I was obsessed, just walked around taking it all in. Absolutely worth it
  • Ah the mercado. This is one of the stellar mercados in Mexico, why?, because it is alive, it is colorful, it is filled with amazing products and one can visit everyday and still never see all that are available. Go early and stay hours. Go on Saturday to see the products that are from the outlying areas of San Cristobal. Truly a gem
