Tuxtla Gutierrez (TGZ) is a fairly new city. It is the commercial center of Chiapas. The city is centered on a large square called the Plaza Cívica, which is surrounded by government buildings such as the municipal and state government offices. Most of its public buildings are from the 20th century, so there is very little colonial architecture.
The best time (months) of the year to visit Tuxtla Gutierrez are March, September and October.
Where to Dine in Tuxtla Gutierrez
For a full sit-down meal, you can try local Chiapan food at Las Pichanchas.
If all you want is tacos, several good places are around the El Parque de la Marimba. This plaza has free marimba music nightly.
