The next morning, Bela at Belas B&B, called her driver to drive us to the airport in Tuxtla Gutierrez, which was over an hour away. It was nice to be able to sit back, enjoy the beautiful drive, and converse with the driver—-in Spanish, of course!
The airport in Tuxtla in very modern. You can see the photo here:
I gorged myself on some nachos and water while I thought about our great week in the state of Chiapas in southern Mexico.
I have been to a number of different cities in Mexico and I must say that San Cristobal is my favorite. It is a delightful town with lots of activities. We felt perfectly safe the entire time we were there. In addition to great restaurants and shops, there are a number of attractions in the area (you already read about San Juan de Chamula).
The easiest way to get to San Cristobal is to fly to Tuxtla (TGZ) and take a taxi to San Cristobal. There are plenty of very nice hotels in San Cristobal. If you want a real experience though, you should try a B&B such as Bela’s.
Hope you enjoyed Mexico. If you have comments you can post them here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want some great Mexican food recipes I notice that Dave Cathey, The Oklahoman’s food editor has some great recipes on his web site. You can find it here: http://blog.newsok.com/fooddude/category/mexican-food/
