I will be working in San Cristobal for a month this summer and am interested in connecting with the gay, lesbian, bisexual community; I have not been able to find any such information in tour books or on travel websites. Please note---I am NOT interested in dating or a hook-up. I have spent a significant time in other parts of Mexico and am aware that it is a very conservative country. I want to be respectful of the cultural differences but am also looking to meet similar folks who I may not otherwise have an opportunity to meet and want to understand what their lives are like in Mexico. Thank you for your assistance.
so i'm thinking of renting a car to drive from either san cristobal or tuxtla-gutierrez to cancun/puerto morelos in june. i checked on hertz/thrifty/etc sites and the prices seem the same as here in the u.s., around18/day....plus400 in taxes!!! please tell me that i can rent a car while i'm there without paying the taxes. or should i just bus it?
My partner and I have been traveling for close to a year now and would like to find a doctor for some routine check ups. We are currently in Mexico and we will be in San Cristobal de las Casas soon. I have heard there is a small expat community here so we thought it might be a good place to find a doctor. Can anybody recommend a good doctor, preferably english speaking in the area, or a good place to find information. If somebody has information on doctors outside of San Cristobal in the south of Mexico that would also be appreciated. Thanks.
hola! my friend and i will be in san cristobal jan.- feb. any advice about a good language school and oppurtunities to see the area by horseback would be very much appreciated! we are solo females in our 50's, will probably do a homestay , and love to ride. we want to see palenque, and any other "must see " sites we are able to in 2 weeks. i will stay on and hopefully take a medical spanish course for my last week to help with my nursing career in california-again any suggestions or contacts will be appreciated. thanks!
Is that possible? I googled and everywhere it derives zero results when i key in the dates. It seems that flights only connects mexico city and san cristobal....

Hi, I will be going to San Cristobal de las Casas medium August, leaving from Europe. what would be the best travel route to take as a woman alone? I was thinking of flying to Cancun (since Mexico city is not that great) and then taking a bus to San Cristobal. I can probably best try to book this busticket when I already arrive there. Does anyone have better suggestions, and does anyone know about the travel time by bus? And any good bus agencies ? Thank you!
In the week before Semana Santa (till about Palm Sunday) I will be in and around San Christobal de las Casas, including a sidetrip to Palenque and after that I will continue to Guatemala (Xela, Antigua). About this a few questions: • Are there any special religious activities (processions) in this week in SCC or the villages around which are worthwhile visiting (the last I can stay is Palm Sunday)? • Good tour companies visiting the villages around SCC and Cañón del Sumidero, already read good things about Na Bolom and Raul and Alegandro. Any recent experiences? • Read somewhere the market in San Juan Chamula in this period is not on Sunday but on Friday. Is this corrrect? • Any social projects/schools/orphanage for visiting/supporting? • Other recommendations in this area? Thanks answering, Harry.
March 6th I came to Oaxaca and now am living in San Pablo Huitzo. I took the bus to San Cristobal where I found a house I’m going to move into. In June I intend to return to the US for a few weeks and then come back to San Cristobal. My question is: when I return to San Cristobal from Oakland, CA, do I have to do so via Oaxaca and the long bus ride over the mountains, it is possible to fly into San Cristobal, or (as someone has suggested) should I fly to Guatemala and bus from there?
I expect to be in San Cristobal from aprox. October 20th to November 20th. We are looking for a house , casita etc for two people. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks
is anyone familiar with spanish language schools in san cristobal?
Hi, I'm flying into cancun (because its cheapest) but ideally I want to get away as quickly as possible from anything remotely touristy, particularly in guatemala. Whats the best way to get into guatemala from mexico without going via belize. Is it true you can go from Cancun to San Cristobal de la casas then on to guatemala? cheers!!!
Which bus line serves the Oaxaca to San Cristobal route? Any interesting towns in route for a possible overnight rest stop and look-around. How many hours does it take? Any on-line schedules or information.

I have six days in December and would like to see San Cristobal, and then book a tour so I can see Palenque, Agua Azul and Yaxchitlan. Does anyone have any recommendations for a tour guide or company?
