Comitan is a pleasant somewhat colonial style city that can be a nice alternative to San Cristobal de las Casas. It has a large section of the city in colonial style, several nice plazas with beautiful churches. It is a good launching off point for a number of sites in Chiapas.
There are two budget hotels with (very) basic rooms with shared bathrooms located on the same street as Posada Las Flores for M$70.00.
OCC and several private mini-bus operations service surrounding locales, including the Mexican-Guatemalan border and San Cristóbal de las Casas. Their terminals are located on Boulevard Belisario Dominguez Sur. To get to the jungle lake of Laguna Miramar from Comitan it is necessary to take a colectivo to the small town of Las Margaritas from where there is a second colectivo to San Quentin (6 hours). It is a 1 km walk from San Quentin to the village of Emiliano Zapata from where you can hire a guide to take you throug the Lacondon jungle to Laguna Miramar.
