Below are a few tours that we have planned with our travel agency Viajes Chiapas. All tours leave from and return to San Cristobal. On the links below, you can download the pdf that have more in depth information of each tour. When you are ready, book your trip with Mitzi Navarro at firstname.lastname@example.org (please cc: email@example.com). Prices are based on groups of 10, and will vary depending on the amount of people that sign up. We are suggesting the best dates for each tour so it is easier for the most people to attend together, however, if you would like to change the dates or have private tours feel free to request it from the agency.

SAN JUAN CHAMULA and zinacantan
One of the largest autonomous indigenous communities in the world, San Juan Chamula (pop. 60,000) is just a few miles from San Cristóbal but in many ways a world apart. The church here has no pews, no altar, and the priest was expelled decades ago for meddling with local customs. Statues of the saints remain, but the nave is used for elaborate ceremonies involving candles, eggs, live chickens and — oddly — Coca-Cola.
For those of you staying longer in Chiapas, here are some additional tours also available as day trips from San Cristobal:
LAGUNAS DE MONTEBELLO AND HACIENDA SANTA MARIA
