A two and a half hour drive south from San Cristobal is the Montebello Lakes area. The area is a beautiful combination of lush green pine forests and deeply coloured green and blue lakes that have formed over time in the karst scenery that dominates the area.
Casa Mexicana, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico
The Casa Mexicana is located just steps from the main pedestrianised area of San Cristóbal de Las Casas making it a perfect base from which to explore the town.
The hotel has a quaint colonial style set in two parts on opposite sides of 28 de Agosto street. One side has an interior sky-lit garden and restaurant decorated with Mexican art and sculptures, the other building has a quiet open air courtyard and garden. All the 52 bedrooms open onto the gardens or private courtyards.
The rooms are simply furnished and a little dark due to the colonial nature of the building but comfortable at the same time. Attached to the hotel is a small shop selling artisan goods from the local area and the rooms and communal areas are also decorated with the work of local artists.
