San Cristobal –
We get up more or less early today: We will head to a nearby canyon for a ziplining tour we booked yesterday. The meeting point is next to the main square “Zocalo”, at the countless cafés. Andre and Diana are right on time and pick us up via minibus. We do not have to ride that far – about half an hour later we are already right in the woods.
The ziplining tour is totally worth it ! While having a little hike though the forest, Andre tells us a a local legend about this canyon and we chat about all sorts of things. In between the walks we have we change three times the side of the canyon by zipline. Great! You get to have a beautiful view on a small creek below. Time is running fast though… We are back in San Cristobal de las Casas at around noon.
Iglesia del Cerro de Guadalupe
We decide to have a little walk before we have to take the overnight bus to Merida. Starting at the pedestrian road we walk up the hill to the highest church of the city, the “Iglesia del Cerro de Guadalupe”. From here, you have an amazing view on the colorful houses below. Though it starts to drizzle it doesn’t bother us that much as we decide to enter a nearby café. Mhhh – something smells delicious: I get to try the traditional pastry
