Welcome to Tuxtla Gutiérrez
In Chiapas, Tuxtla Gutiérrez is as close to a big city as you’re going to get. A busy modern metropolis and transportation hub, the state capital doesn’t overwhelm with style, though it makes up for it with lots of amenities and nightlife. Most travelers pass through either the shiny modern airport or the bus station on the way to somewhere else, but it’s a comfortable, worthwhile and welcoming place to spend a day or two.
A few blocks west of the Jardín de la Marimba, Avenida Central becomes Blvd Belisario Domínguez; many of the Tuxtla’s best hotels and restaurants are strung along this road, as well as the city's big-box megastores.
