Things to do

Buy Handicrafts

To find the objects created by the hands of Comitán’s men and women, visit the Plaza de las Artesanías (handicrafts square) or the Parador Artesanal Mina de los Ángeles. Leather and wood objects, pottery pieces, colorful huipiles (embroidered blouses) and shawls are all elements of Comitán’s traditional handicrafts. In the center, there is also a small souvenir store that it is worth browsing through. Inside you can find shawls, leather shoes made by the neighborhood saddle makers, as well as the agave-based drink known as comiteco.
