One of our first stops in Mexico, the small but perfectly formed city of San Cristobal was something of a surprise.
Set in a valley surrounded by fertile, farm-dotted hills and rolling coffee plantations, this sedate colonial centre is alive with colour and culture.
And although it's city that has, very savvily, geared itself towards the flourishing tourist trade, it does so with a beautifully classy mix of Mexican tradition and Spanish style.
