Zinacantan Tours

With a population that’s 99.1 percent Tzotzil Maya, Zinacantan is a destination for travelers who want to witness and explore the lifestyle and history of Mexico’s indigenous people. Visitors can learn about animist traditions and Catholic influence on a visit to one of the town’s churches or visit local artisans creating traditional clothing. A small market selling handmade Mayan goods proves a perfect place to purchase souvenirs or sample local fare. And while this village is worth a visit any time of year, visitors say a guide can help ease the feeling of being an outsider during non-festival seasons when travelers are few and far between. 

Practical Info

Zinacantan is located in the southern part of the Central Chiapas highlands. The Feast of Sain Lawrence, the town’s patron saint, takes place each year from August 8 through August 10. Guided tours are a popular option since public transport between Chamula and Zinacantan is nearly impossible to find.
