To begin with, this is a taste of Chiapas, with a few examples of our trips:


We leave San Cristobal de Las Casas towards the tsotsil communities of San Juan Chamula and Zinacantán. An encounter with their customs, rituals and astonishing Mayan traditions.  


This is a 5 days tour. We leave San Cristobal de Las Casas heading towards the region of the Lacandon Jungle and ending up at Villahermosa airport. This trip will be an encounter with the evergreen rain forest of Chiapas, visits to ancient Mayan cities, and a cruise up the Usumacienta River.


This trip is focused on the textile traditions of the Mayans of the Highlands of Chiapas.  From San Cristobal de las Casas, we will tour around two indigenous Mayan communities that have preserved ancient techniques with their backstrap loom and natural dyeing.

Do not forget that these and all our tours in south-eastern Mexico and Chiapas are tailored to your possibilities and with a careful personal attention.

Do not hesitate in contacting me! I assure you that your trip will be of great learning and a rewarding experience.
