San Cristobal & Palenque
Chiapas is the southern-most state of Mexico, with a rich culture and history and at a third of the Chiapas population, the highest concentration of indigenous people in the country. These are mainly the Tzeltal and Tzotzil indians, descendants of the Maya civilisation of over a thousand years ago, who live in dozens of village communities in this beautiful highland valley. The Zapatista political movement is based here, with its policy of community development and democracy and strongly supports their welfare, economic survival and language.
Largely because of the region’s history and the highly indigenous population, San Cristobal de las Casas is considered to be the cultural capital of the state, although Tuxtla is the actual capital. San Christobal offers some lovely Spanish colonial architecture.
