The indigenous people of Chiapas speak their own language (often in addition to Spanish), practice their own unique customs and can be identified by their traditional dress that varies by group. They continue to depend primarily on agriculture for their economic well-being; however, it’s not unusual for them to travel into San Cristobal to sell their handmade crafts and shop in the markets for everyday items to take back to their villages. San Juan Chamula, is a town steeped in history, and yet also allows a look into the Mayas of today. This is the largest Maya township in Chiapas.This region is known for its agricultural and ceremonial lifestyles, which are a mixture of Catholic and Mayan beliefs. The Catholic Church of San Juan Bautista, in fact, is not part of any Diocese because residents desire the freedom to perform various types of rituals. The road to the village of San Lorenzo Zinancantan is about 11 km. long. Zinancantán people are also Tzotzil Mayans and the predominant dress is in very distinctive costumes of pink and purple. Your day ends with drop off at your Hotel. Read more
