San Cristobal wins hands down. Tuxtla is no comparison. Most just pass through on the way to somewhere else. San Cristobal is a market town for the many villages in the area. Most of them can be reached by buses that leave from San Cristobal's market. There are also tour buses but the locals tend to resent the groups. If you go to San Juan Chamula, one of the most fascinating of the local villages, leave you camera in San Cristobal.

Definitely San Cristobal. Tuxtla is hot, dirty and crowded. San Cristobal is small, clean, and beautifully tucked into the mountains. There are plenty of things to see and do, whether you are visiting for a short time or residing long-term. It's only about 30-45 minutes from Tuxtla, so you can still go by for a visit if you want.

Tuxtla obviously, you can not compare to the town of San Cristobal with lousy quality of life with a whole city like Tuxtla Gutierrez with such high development indices. San Cristobal is nothing more than a small municipality, a town also littered with filthy people, like San Juan Chamula, apart from being a village "wannabe european" which is very funny...

There is a migration flow of people from San Cristobal to Tuxtla Gutierrez will find that tuxtleco dream because there are starving, perhaps you want that?
