El entorno maya de San Cristóbal. En el paisaje de los Altos destacan las montañas con pinos y los pequeños valles, pero también otros elementos como la gastronomía derivada de la milpa, los rituales y las fiestas o las hermosas expresiones del arte textil. Hoy comenzaremos conociendo Zinacantán, una población maya tsotsil famosa por sus cultivos de flores y sus coloridas prendas. Se encuentra ubicado a tan sólo 10 kilómetros de la ciudad de San Cristóbal de Las Casas. En Zinacantán, además de conocer su templo dedicado a San Lorenzo, podrás visitar algunas casas locales que trabajan el telar de cintura y donde también podrás degustar tortillas hechas a mano recién salidas del fogón y acompañarlas con queso chiapaneco y pepita molida de calabaza, así como disfrutar de un trago de posh bebida espirituosa muy propia de la región. ¡Será una experiencia inolvidable!

Espera…La aventura no termina, aún falta San Juan Chamula por visitar. Aparte de admirar su costumbres y tradiciones es una comunidad tsotsil que te hará ver de otra forma las plegarias. Su templo con un gran portón que sólo se abre por completo en la fiesta de San Juan da paso a un recinto de una atmósfera única de misticismo. Todo está vigilado por los “mayoles” o policías, que portan un “chuck” –cotón de lana gruesa blanco y un marro de madera dura como el fierro. A los visitantes les está prohibido tomar fotografías. El acceso al interior de la iglesia está regulado y se debe pagar una cuota para entrar. Es hora de regresar a San Cristóbal y continuar disfrutando de sus andadores, su música, sus colores.
