Nice old colonial town high up in the mountains so it was nice and cool. This is the Zapatista stronghold of Mexico, a semi-political group who launched an insurgency in the mid 90's and there was a lot of fighting in the area. Still slightly volatile but I missed out on anything interesting like that as I didn't find a lot to do. Went to the Sumidero canyon nearby, a 1000m gorge with a river at the bottom with plenty of crocodiles in that I took a boat ride along.
