Santiago Tuxtla centers on a lovely, verdant main plaza – one of the state’s prettiest and all atweet with Mexican grackles – and is surrounded by the rolling green foothills of the volcanic Sierra de los Tuxtlas. It's far more laid-back and considerably more charming than its built-up neighbor San Andrés, with its plaza strewn with women arm-in-arm, couples lip-to-lip and shoes getting vigorously shined. Its museum and its giant Olmec head alone make it worth a visit.
