A unique experience to live with natives of the communities of San Juan Chamula and Zinacatan and learn a little of their traditions.


Departure for the Indigenous Communities of the Tzotzil ethnic group. The first visit will take you to the town of Chamula for a learning experience with an aim to understanding the fusion of contemporary traditions and ancient Mayan characteristics that give this place its identity. You will then continue towards Zinacantan where you will visit the church and the home of a family cooperative where you  will be welcomed with a regional drink and have the opportunity to watch women work the waist loom which dates from Pre-Columbian times.

Having seen some of the samples of what they produce, you will be invited into their kitchen where we may be fortunate enough to be offered a tasting of their traditional hand-made tortillas. When finished, you will return to San Cristobal de Las Casas.
