Luxury holidays in San Cristóbal de Las Casas
When to go
Visit in March, April, or May for the best chance of (pleasant) sunshine. Please note that San Cristobal sits 2,200 metres above sea level, meaning altitude sickness is a possibility – especially if you’re travelling with little Smiths.
PlanesFly into Tuxtla Gutiérrez Airport and hop in a cab for an hour-and-a-half journey through the Chiapan countryside to San Cristóbal; or you can pick up a rental at the airport and drive yourself up to the region’s hilltop city.
AutomobilesRent a car from Tuxtla airport and experience life as a local behind the wheel; although be aware that automatic cars are tough to find in Chiapas, so leave self-drivers behind and hone your gear-stick skills in advance.
