Comitán de Dominguez, in southern Chiapas, is a colonial city without the colonial pretense. It has been given the title of Pueblo Magico, along with other more famous cities like San Cristobal de las Casas, and San Miguel de Allende. It is magico. The leadership of the city is forward thinking. It's clean, filled with public sculptures, has a modern art museum, and yet retains all the old customs and rituals that keep it grounded in its past. The climate is spring-like year round and it is popular with Mexican tourists. Many nice hotels and restaurants make it a good place to stay if you want to visit Lagunas de Montebello, the Mayan ruins of Chinkultic and Tenam Puente, or visit the towering cascades of El Chiflon.
