Tuxtla Gutierrez

Tuxtla Gutierrez
Tuxtla Gutiérrez is the capital and the largest city of the Mexican southeast state of Chiapas. You've now added Mayan Medicine Museum to your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Tuxtla Gutierrez: San Cristobal de las Casas (Catedral de San Cristobal de Las Casas & Templo de Santo Domingo). There's still lots to do: explore the stunning scenery at Embarcadero Cañón Del Sumidero, make a trip to Chiapa de Corzo, tour the pleasant surroundings at Miradores Canon del Sumidero, and walk around Parque de la Marimba.

To see photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Tuxtla Gutierrez travel route planner.

Veracruz to Tuxtla Gutierrez is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive. When traveling from Veracruz in March, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Tuxtla Gutierrez: temperatures range from °F by day to °F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel to Palenque.
