Parque Natural Mexiquillo


San Cristobal

San Cristobal is nestled 7200 feet up in a valley surrounded by pine covered mountains. It is a large city of 200,000 plus people. We hired a large 14 passenger van for our 3 day, 2 night trip to San Cristobal. We rented a 7 bed room house for our stay.

The wheels on the bus go round and round

I don't need no stinking pickup

Our first glimpse of San Cristobal 

It was 2 km walk from our house to the central plaza. On the way we stopped at this restaurant for lunch.

I had some very tasty tacos pastor. I enjoyed the added pineapple chucks.

The Central Plaza

Off the central plaza one finds upscale shopping 

Even a Burger King

Several block further are stalls where indigenous people sell their wares

Then several blocks more and you enter the real central market frequented by locals for their daily shopping. 

We stopped for some refreshments at one of the food stalls. I had Horchata, a rice flavored drink, Kevin, Ruth and Sue had Jamaica, a hibiscus tea and Roy had a coke.


A very ornately carved Santo Domingo Church

The detail is incredible
