Take an excursion full of mysticism and magic. Visit the indigenous villages of San Juan Chamula & Zinacantan, located in the highlands of Chiapas. In both Tzotzil Maya communities, the complex ethnic composition of Chiapas is well reflected and they still demonstrate a rich variety of customs and beliefs expressed in traditions of both pagan and Christian origin. Interestingly, San Juan Chamula enjoys a unique autonomous status within Mexico, which has kept the village authentic. 

At the church of San Juan Chamula you will witness healing rituals and prayers carried out in Tzotzil, the community’s native language. Afterwards, the trip continues to the indigenous village of Zinacantan. Here you will visit a place where weaving artisan women will show you how they elaborate their textiles and waist looms. You will also have a chance to taste delicious handmade tortillas made on the wood oven of a typical indigenous kitchen.
