Most colectivos depart next to or opporiste the ADO bus terminal. A colectivo to Tuxtla costs approximately $50,-. There is no direct colectivo to Chiapa de Corzo, instead you take one to Tuxtla, the driver will drop you off at the junction to Chiapa. From there you can take a local colectivo downtown, or walk. TAOSA Transport run collectivos to Comitan for MX$60. They are located opposite the ADO station on the other side of the main road (GPS 16.729435, -92.637375) If you are travelling to Guatemala via La Mesilla, you have three ways to do it. Either you take the ADO bus for MX$170 which will take you to Ciduad Cuauhtémoc, and from there, take an orange shared taxi for MX$10 to the actual border. The other alternative is to take a TAOSA collectivo to Comitan for MX$60 and from Comitan a collectivo to Ciduad Cuauhtémoc for MX$60, then a shared taxi for MX$10 to the border. Lastly and the most expensive option is to pay a tour guide operator in San Cristobal to take you across the border to Panajachel for example, for approx MX$700. Please note, that on the Guatemala side of La Mesilla you can get a chicken bus (Camioneta) to HueHuetenango for Q20 (MX$49) and from HueHuetenango (pronounced whey whey) to other areas including La Cuchilla where you get off and take another collectivo to Panajachel. Using this last transport you could probably do the trip from SC to Panajachel for about MX$200. However due to the distance you may need to stay 1 night in either HueHuetenango or Quetzaltenago (pronounced Sheyla).
A tour to two of the '''local indigenous villages''', [[San Juan Chamula]] and Zinacantan is found at 9:30AM at the plaza in front of the cathedral, next to the Zocalo. Cesar and Raul are always there and everyone who appears is accommodated. They speak many languages and this visit really needs a guide, so you understand the interesting things you will observe. They supply transportation and entrance fees. The tour returns around 2:30PM (lunch time in Mexico). In 2019, this tour cost 250 pesos. [].
