Get to know some of the traditions of the indigenous villages like San Juan Chamula in our Chiapas excursions. One of the most popular and full of tradition festivities takes place during Ash Wednesday. It is a carnival where the maxes come out to dance with traditional music. This party lasts 4 days and one of those days they go out to walk 13 laps around the Plaza de Chamula while pulling a bull and dancing with the maxes.
In the town of San Juan Chamula is located a very emblematic and particular temple. Due to the beliefs of the Chamulas, the interior cannot be photographed. Unlike a common temple, in the temple of San Juan Chamula there are no benches to sit on, as the Chamulas sit or kneel on the floor to pray. The temple is full of saints and mirrors, as the Chamulas believe that confession is personal, that is to say they go to the saints holding a mirror in front of themselves, as it is said that they cannot lie to themselves. This and many other traditions are still preserved around this culture and you will be able to learn about them on excursions to Chiapas.
Chiapas has the enchantment of hosting several cultures and ways of life. It is very interesting to take our indigenous villages tour in Chiapas Mexico to witness the crash between cultures. Indigenous inhabitants still have their own government and are very jealous of their traditions. You will feel almost as if you as a visitor do not have a place among them. Get ready to be wowed as you stroll across the ruins in Palenque. Wayak bus is the safest and comfortable way to travel around Mexico and our customers will be pleased.
