Bela's B & B is a charming inn with four guest rooms. The cottage
bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and is right in the garden. This
room's windows look into the garden and the bathroom is decorated with
tiles from Puebla. All the rooms have one double bed, except the
suite, which has a king bed and futon couch. The room above the suite
has a glorious view, balcony and private bathroom. The smaller
room shares a bath with separate shower, two sinks and two WC's. The
dining area is a glassed-in room with a chimney for the chilly mornings.
The location of the inn is excellent; just steps away from a crafts
market place (Santa Domingo church), a block from the walking street
which leads to the zocalo and cathedral (four blocks) and on to the
famous Del Carmen church. Three blocks in the other direction is the
main market.
There is excellent comida served five days a week for $6.00 US by
Bela's assistant Manuela, a lovely indigenous woman from Chanal (one
of the nearby communities). The regional food is delicious and made
from local ingredients. The coffee is on tap and is grown by Manuela's
mother-in-law and hand roasted by her sister. This is a family affair.
It is the most fair trade coffee in the world.
The garden is gorgeous where visitors, friends and three wonderful
dogs can romp, read, write, drink coffee or wine and enjoy the sun.
Being generally cool, San Cristobal doesn't suffer from biting bugs --
a blessing in such an oasis.



We offer Hi Speed WI FI internet connection, airport pick up and drop
off, on-site laundry service, on-site one-and-a-half-hour deep tissue
massage for 400 pesos (30 dollars), a recording studio on site
(sound-proofed of course) and three lovely dogs. Also and perhaps
best, (after the massage maybe) we have Manuela, who may be the best
cook south of the Rio Bravo! Bela gives walking/shopping tours for
those interested.



There is the Cathedral, located on the main plaza, containing baroque
altars, 17th and 18th century paintings, fine wood carvings and
sculptures. Also, Santo Domingo Church, built between 1547 and 1560,
is one of the largest in Mexico. Its facade is an example of typical
Mexican Baroque. Na-Bolom (House of the Jaguar) houses an
archeological and ethnological museum and library. Founded by Danish
archeologist Frans Blom and his wife Trudi, the foundation focuses on
the Indians of Chiapas and their culture. The Indian Market is located
on the grounds of the Santo Domingo Church. Held every day, Mayan
people come in from the villages to sell textiles, pottery, jewelry,
and baskets as well as items made of leather, tin, cotton, and wool.
The daily City Market is San Cristobal's central market. Located two
blocks from the Indian market, it is the source of produce, meat,
fresh flowers, furniture, charcoal, household goods, and clothing for
much of the city's population. Some of the most interesting ruin sites
in Mexico and Central America are in Chiapas, including Palenque,
Tonina, Yaxchilan, Bonampak, Tenam Puente, and Chinkultic, among
others. Hiking options include walks through pine forests, a climb to
the Huetepec Cloud Forest, and guided or unguided tours of the city.
Bike rentals and horseback riding excursions are available.



Room with view and Suite with private baths: $60.00 US single, $75.00 double. Garden room with ensuite bath: $50.00 single and $65.00 double. Small room with shared bath: $30.00 single and $45 double. Laundry service available for a fee Airport pick up and drop off by expert drivers -- 600 pesos pick up, 450 drop off.
