... I'd heard about. It seemed like a nice peaceful way to spend a slow travel day. Google Maps said it was only about a 25-minute walk, but it kept getting confused as to my location, so it took me about an hour and a half to find the spot. And no wonder: Getting there involved walking through some parts of town where tourists don't seem to go. The poverty in some of the neighbourhoods I passed during my walk was fairly obvious: Dirt roads with small ...
... sure the place was much more serene and more so worth a visit, but it felt like it had been a bit spoilt.
Once we arrived in San Cristobal, there was a mad scramble for Wifi in the hotel lobby, as we’d had none for the last 48 hours. It was quite funny to see. Obviously I was included in the scramble. The city itself had a really nice vibe about the place; cobbled streets, coffee shops, and ...

Luckily at 11pm we found a very decent place right in the centre of town which was in our budget.

... face covered, as most of the Zapatista rebels. You can take a look at the village and take pictures but only of the murals. You're not allowed to take pictures of animals, people and cars. The village itself is like every other village except for the murals that document the Zapatista movement. Apart from taking a walk in the very muddy (!) village, you can visit their small shops and a café (we had a gorgeous chocolate banana on a stick for 2 MXN there ;))
