Trip To Chiapas, Mexico with the Center for Global Justice: March 9 - 16, 2019

This trip will focus on the social/political stew that has been simmering in this area rich in history, cultures, resources and natural beauty. Using San Cristobal as our home base, we will explore this southern state that borders Guatemala. The geography of the area has assisted the preservation of some 13 different indigenous groups, most of Mayan heritage, with their own language, customs, autonomous governance and attire. The group will also wander around the artisan markets of San Cristobal and beyond. If you enjoy handwoven textiles, world class gourmet food and cultural museums, you'll love San Cristobal. Day trips include the incredible Sumidero Canyon ecosystem, which will give you a sense of the natural beauty and ancient history that abounds in Chiapas.


Cost per person: Double - $1100, Single - $1300
