WHERE IS ARAMAUCA?
SAN CRISTOBAL DE LAS CASAS
Chiapas - Mexico
Aramauca has headquarters located in the historic ¨Barrio de Guadalupe¨ in San Cristobal de Las Casas - Chiapas (Mexico). Set in a gorgeous highland valley surrounded by pine forest, the colonial city of San Cristobal has been a popular travelers’ destination for decades. It’s a pleasure to explore San Cristobal’s cobbled streets and markets, soaking up the unique ambience and the wonderfully clear highland light.
This medium-sized city also boasts a comfortable blend of city and countryside, with restored century-old houses giving way to grazing animals and fields of corn.
San Cristobal was catapulted into the international limelight on January 1, 1994, when the Zapatista rebels selected it as one of four places in which to launch their revolution, seizing and sacking government offices in the town before being driven out within a few days by the Mexican army. Political and social tensions remain, but San Cristóbal continues to attract travelers, real estate investment and a growing middle class.
Surrounded by dozens of traditional Tzotzil and Tzeltal villages, San Cristobal is at the heart of one of the most deeply rooted indigenous areas in Mexico, Lacandon Jungle. A great base for local and regional exploration, it’s a place where ancient customs coexist with modern luxuries.
