There are several must-visit attractions in the city that are perfect for a road trip. Within the city, the Regional Museum of Chiapas, the largest in southeast Mexico, is definitely recommended. For nature aficionados, a drive to Chiapa de Corzo will lead to the Sumidero Canyon and its impressive 1,000-meter high cliffs. If you wish to commune with wildlife, The Zoo Miguel Alvarez del Toro (ZOOMAT), about a 45-minute car ride from the city center, is home to a variety of exclusively native species.
Just outside the city, the picturesque indigenous towns of San Cristóbal de las Casas and Palenque, are an easy car ride away and present opportunities to immerse in local culture and history. San Cristóbal, about a 75-minute car ride from Tuxtla, is renowned for its colonial architecture, cobbled streets and vibrant indigenous culture.
