Unlike Puerto Vallarta, Chiapas is a less familiar state among tourists travelling to Mexico but San Cristóbal de las Casas is the perfect location to discover Chiapa’s natural beauty, vegetarian Mexican food and a thriving LGBT+ arts scene. There’s also plenty to discover in San Cristóbal de las Casas itself – including a gay-friendly arts scene, laid-back atmosphere, and a strong queer-led, feminist movement. Just walking around the town, we came across a queer pro-abortion protest. And while San Cristóbal doesn’t have any gay-specific bars, we didn’t once feel uncomfortable holding hands as a lesbian couple.
