TravelPod Member ReviewsSanta Clara San Cristobal de las Casas
The actual building was beautiful or could be beautiful but our room was extremely dirty (very mouldy and dirty toilets, showers and sheets)and the locks didn't really work. There wasn't any safety box either in the room or at the front desk - you could put your valuables in an envelope, closed with sticky tape, under the counter of the front desk (which we didn't do). There were notices on the doors saying that you should lock all personal items up before leaving your room which didn't give us alot of confidence. But other than that there wasn't alot of choice and it was only a couple of nights.

... sharks, we took a bus to Tulum to go and dive in the cenotes.
TULUM, cave diving, turtles and an eagle ray.
The Cenotes (fresh water sink holes) were amazing. My favourite was a deep dive in "The Pit" cenote, with crystal clear water; from 37 meters I could see a diver on the surface entering the water. There was a diver that had a problem in another group about 30m or so away from me and I could see him sprinting the whole 30m to the surface heading ...
... and Milton somehow convinced the driver to take us to the next town on it. He called ahead and arranged to have the rest of the tour met in San Cristobal upon arrival, and he and I got on the other bus.
After a miserable thirty minute ride, during which I just tried to hang on, we arrived in Juchitan de Zaragoza, which was basically not much else but a truck stop town. But it was a town nonetheless. It was around 2am by then. Milton found a ...
... tequila. Nice and crisp, very satisfying. We aided its travel into our guts through a few drinking games, although playing counting games in Danish was rather problematic! We then went out to a local salsa bar which was fab- a toe-tapping live band and a dance floor full of middle aged locals doing dance moves I could only dream of. You may see a few embarrassing pictures of me 'dancing' salsa on Facebook in due course... A few of us went to a club afterwards where they had a 241 deal ...
... the Chocolate with us and seemed to really enjoy it. When it finished, we left and she was going to bed. Another good and much valued day with our family. While I'm writing this, we're watching on TV a special tribute to the war veterans. Very moving, especially listening to a mother who's son was the first American soldier to die in Afghanistan - she spoke so strongly, and she was beautiful. It's Memorial Day tomorrow - like Anzac ...
... tower which had great views. David resisted the urge to ring the bell.
Back in San Cristóbal we had a late Menu del Dia lunch at Tierradentro, a restaurant run by Zaptista supporters. Zapatistas are indigenous people wanting to live by their own idealogies and not the State of Mexico's -It's pretty complicated so Google it, if you want to know more about the Zapatistas....
