Visit Chiapas with the Center for Global Justice
Ready to Explore Again?
How About Chiapas?
The world of travel appears to be opening up again as we get a better handle on Covid.
The Center for Global Justice is restarting our cultural travel programs.
In addition to our trips to Cuba, we are heading back to Chiapas.
This summer, from August 22 - 30, we’ll take a small group on an incredible cultural adventure to San Cristobal de Las Casas and several wonderful surrounding communities. With a strong emphasis on the important politics and history of the area, this is a tour unique in its approach.
San Cristobal is one of those places that blends a modern regional hub with a rich history of indigenous culture. You’ll find world class restaurants amid colorful local craft markets. If you’re in to textiles and weaving, you won’t be disappointed. Wander down cobblestone streets in this colonial town and you can’t help but feel like you are in another place and time.
For those interested in the archeological exploration, there will be a day trip to Zone Arqueologica de Tonina, a site that provides an intimate look at a culture that flourished as far back as AD 217, an early part of a Mayan presence that continues to play such an important role in contemporary Mexico.
In summary, there will be 7 days of planned programs with an extremely knowledgeable bilingual guide, 8 nights in a San Cristobal hotel, all local transportation and entry fees. No meals are included.
So if you’re ready to get out there again, exploring the world and enriching your mind, join us on this wonderful trip to Chiapas.
