On Sunday, January 20, we visited the highland Maya communities of San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan in a small group led by Raul, of Alex and Raul Tours. These are autonomous, true indigenous communities preserving their heritage. We were fortunate to visit them on a Sunday when significant festivals were happening in both towns. A detailed narrative is available, but may be more than you want to know. Here are selected photos of Chamula and of Zinacantan.
