San Cristobal de las Casas is located in Chiapas, in the central highlands region of Mexico. The terrain here is made up of crumbling mountains, and the city itself is found in a valley, surrounded by these hills. In the areas surrounding the Spanish colonial city of San Cristobal de las Casas, dozens of indigenous villages are inhabited by the Tzotzil and Tzeltal peoples. Thus, the region is a unique location, where the old world lives alongside the modernities of contemporary culture and tourism. The city is also known as a popular location for supporters of the Zapatista rebels, lending itself to an infrastructure built upon the cohabitation of the area by artists, progressives, and foreign guests alike. In 2003, the city was declared to be one of the most magical locations in all of Mexico, officially dubbed a “pueblo magico”, or a magic village.
