TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Jardines del Carmen San Cristobal de las Casas
I went to San Cristobal de las casa with a group of friend and we stay here at Jardines del carmen. We were going in a low budget trip so this hotel was perfect for out plan. The rooms were very comfortable, they had everything we needed, The beds were soft and the pillows too, so after long walks and tours all day it was nice coming back to the hotel and rest. The people at the front desk were very nice and very helpful they showed us how to get to the best places in town and how to get to one place to another. The location of this hotel was close to downtown, it wasn't in the middle of everything but it was like a 5-10 minutes walk to the zocalo. The area was safe and we could walk there till late.

... fresh air. There is a political protest going on and they lock the gates. Hinesh is looking for some food to get more plastic bags for me - see I told you he is amazing. I reluctantly board and we move to our allocated seats for the second half of the journey (the bus wasn't full on the way in so we sat wherever). Our allocated seats were sitting behind two fat women who had reclined their seats to near horizontal. We squeeze in and Hinesh has barely any room to move but the ...

The patron saint of Zinacantán is San Lorenzo (Saint Lawrence) whose feast day is 10 August. This traditional feast lasts four days (from 8–10 August). ...
... favorite USA holiday, I am very glad to have taken part of in this section of ‘The Trip.’ Mexico is amazing, and needs more time in each place. But more than anything I have loved the adventure of a trip with Jim Coates – safe and skilled motorcycle navigator, astute (well, sometimes) judge of hotel quality, ready to speak with anyone about anything to help us find our way, and great travel partner. Thank you, and ...
