Holidays in Chiapas!
In December I traveled to Chiapas in the South of México with my housemates, Erika and Abel. Their families are both from San Cristóbal de las Casas, one of the most picturesque cities I’ve ever visited. Now I know why Chiapas is such a popular tourist destination (especially for liberal European tourists who followed the Zapatista uprising in 1994): it is possibly the most geographically and ethnically diverse state in the Republic. In addition to enjoying the colorful, pedestrian-friendly streets of San Cris, we explored some of the outlying areas, including breathtaking waterfalls and Mayan ruins!
