Introduction

Tuxtla Gutiérrez is the capital of the Mexican state of Chiapas. It's a relatively modern city; one of the few old buildings is the San Marcos Cathedral from the sixteenth century. Tuxtla is mainly a transportation hub to places more worth seeing in Chiapas.

Population

The city has over half a million inhabitants.

Location

Tuxtla Gutiérrez is located in the south of Mexico on the Grijalva River. The city lies at an altitude of 600 meters in the fairly narrow Tochtlán Valley, with mountains north and south of the urban area.

Economy

Tuxtla Gutiérrez is a center of government and education. Most people work for the government, at local, state or federal level. There are also several universities and colleges, including many technical institutes. Tourism is barely of importance to Tuxtla, except for those visiting the city passing through to other destinations. Tuxtla is a regional transportation hub, both for road and air traffic.

Airports

Tuxtla Gutiérrez' international airport, Ángel Albino Corzo International Airport, is situated 35 kilometers southeast of the city center. It's extremely modern and was opened in 2006. Tuxtla Gutiérrez International Airport is easily reachable by rental car via the Carretera Federal 190 and then the road to Salvador Urbina. The way is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Tuxtla Gutiérrez has an ultramodern bus station, from where equally modern buses maintain the connections with the many tourist attractions in Chiapas. Buses run for example to Palenque and Toniná (Maya ruins).

Traffic and Parking

As said above: Tuxtla is mainly a transportation hub for those traveling on to other destinations in Chiapas. The Carretera Federal 190, which crosses the city, is part of the Pan-American Highway. This road runs from Mexico City, via Tuxtla, to the border with Guatemala. If you are staying in the city, it's best to park your rental car at your hotel. Most hotels offer free parking facilities for their guests.

Hotels

Although Tuxtla Gutiérrez isn't a large tourist attraction, there are still about 70 hotels in town. Most guests are business travelers or people waiting for a bus or plane connection. There are some good hotels, but also many accommodations of dubious reputation. We therefore advise to read reviews, before booking a hotel in Tuxtla. There are some nice accommodations in Chiapa de Corzo, on the other side of the Grijalva River.
