San Cristóbal de las Casas Services

Internet and Phone

Internet cafes are plentiful and located on almost every street corner of San Cristóbal de las Casas, although the actual internet connection in Mexico is often quite unpredictable, but with prices averaging from $.50-1, its not a big loss to wait for the slow connection. Many internet shops also have either Skype or international calling with good, clear connections between $.05-30 a minute. Fax machines and printers are difficult to find and beware of going to the internet cafes around lunch time or when school lets out as it will be filled with adolescents playing loud violent computer games.


Doctors and Pharmacies

The pharmacies are clustered around the Zocalo and offer most over the counter drugs that can be found in America at a fraction of the price. They also have many prescription drugs on sale, but remember to write down the scientific name of the brand you are looking for as many are generic and the pharmacist may not know the specific drug name. English speaking doctor’s offices are found near the Zocalo on Real de Guadalupe. Dentists are located closer to the outside of town near Santa Domingo Church.



The only supermarket to be found in San Cristóbal de las Casas is located on a shady part of town on the outskirts near the Museo de Medicina. The best bet is to either go there during the day or hit up one of the local mercados for fresh produce.
