The Huitepec is the mountain towering to the West of San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, in Southern Mexico.

It is home to several endemic bird species, such as the motmot Aspatha gularis and the bearded screech-owl. On its eastern flank the site of Santa Anita, Chiapas is located. A big part of the mountain has been declared a community reserve by the Zapatista Junta de Buen Gobierno. On its northern flank, the NGO Pronatura has a privately owned nature reserve.
