Coinciding with the namesake church, the Barrio de Mexicanos neighborhood of San Cristobal de las Casas hosts annual parades celebrating Holy Week and the Virgin Mary, complete with fireworks and music. Barrio de Mexicanos is also home to many traditional artisans. Weavers, confectioners, and brick makers all continue to thrive in the neighborhood, perfecting their crafts and passing down their skills to their kids. Want to visit San Cristobal? Just be careful, because many tourists love the city so much they end up living there permanently!
