Discover the wonderful state of Chiapas by visiting three Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Towns), landscapes, archaeological sites, waterfalls and lakes, but above all, knowing its gastronomic wealth. The starting point is its capital city Tuxtla Gutiérrez, a city where modernity and nature blend with each other. At this place, one moment you can be walking through a large shopping center, and in the next you are somewhere inside the jungle, such is the case of the Zologico Miguel Álvarez del Toro (Miguel Álvarez del Toro Zoo) or the Jardín Botánico (Botanical Garden). You can even see a flock of parrots flying over the urban area or admire ancient zoque rituals such as the “bajada de las Vírgenes de Copoya” (descent of the Virgins of Copoya). For adventurous visitors there are tours such as climbing, rappelling, caving and paragliding to name a few, and for those with good appetite there is an excellent range of restaurants.

Go south and approach Chiapa de Corzo, a Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) of great tradition and culture. It is distinguished by the Mudéjar fountain, its great handicraft tradition (lacquer, wood carving, embroidery and popular toys) and the Fiesta Grande in January with the Parachicos dance, recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Walk through its historic downtown, one of the most notable architectural complexes in the state, fall in love with its crafts and one of the most impressive natural wonders in the country: the Parque Nacional Cañón del Sumidero (Sumidero Canyon National Park).

The next spot is San Cristóbal de las Casas, which also holds the title of Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town). Its architecture brings together Central American colonial art and Mexican art, both in its baroque facades and altarpieces, as well as in the neoclassical features. From San Cristóbal you can travel to communities such as San Juan Chamula and Zinacantán where you will discover high quality textiles, ceremonies, rituals and colonial temples, as well as geological wonders such as caves and natural arches, surrounded by forests and crops. The flavor of its gastronomy fascinates with its ingredients and fusions, which evoke the encounter between prehispanic and Spanish cultures.

Move on to the southwest region and go to the third of the four Pueblos Mágicos (Magical Towns) of Chiapas which is Comitán de Domínguez. This is a charming and proud place in Chiapas, where you will find delicious flavors, a temperate climate, flowery patios, luminous horizons next to Mayan temples and magnificent colonial churches. Try their coffee and their food, walk and explore some of its neighborhoods entering its cultural and artistic precincts, but, above all, discover its surroundings as you will find archaeological sites, waterfalls and crystalline lagoons. Comiteca gastronomy is wholesome and it also has a strong personality, it reflects the merge of two origins: the autochthonous and the Spanish; most of the typical snacks can be found in diners and inns throughout the city.
