  • People gather around the Central magnificent of the kiosk to listen and dance to the rhythm of the traditional music of Chiapas. It is a place that you must visit when you're in Tuxtla. It is advisable to arrive early (6-7 pm) to achieve a good place. If you like to dance and music this place is recommended for you. Nearby there is a lady who sells tamales typical and very cheap.

  • The meeting place of the inhabitants of Tuxtla, if you go by season low and during the week really you feel like foreigner since is perceived that people gathered ahpi is an already well-established community where everybody knows. It is a tradition to arrange itself to dance. The show is well worth, you can drink a coffee while enjoying the sound of the marimba and obeservas people dancing. And even if you dare you can take a bailecito, anyone critique anyone.
