Tour to San Juan Chamula & Zinacantan
Join this original tour of San Cristobal de Las Casas, a mix of Indigenous and local villages full of colors and traditions.
San Cristobal is made up of a series of traditional barrios (neighborhoods), each of which is known for a particular trade or custom, such as ironworking, carpentry, and woodcarving.
On this tour, you will visit San Juan Chamula village who owns a church unlike any other. The picturesque, centuries-old Iglesia San Juan has whitewashed walls and a brightly painted entrance that looks out upon the town square.
After you will visit Zinacantan village, you'll have the opportunity to learn all about the work of the women of Zinacantán, who weave uniquely beautiful textiles with a special loom attached to their belts. Having admired the traditional hupiles and blankets, you'll then have the opportunity to taste the local fare and try a local dish.Itinerary
