The experience is more than visual: it becomes unforgettable due to my explanations about the roots of the customs and the legends that you will hear. Thanks to that, you will see it from another perspective. It’s not just a parade or a mask: there’s a lot of history and faith behind it!

Chiapas is a state rich in indigenous culture, traditions, customs that are expressed through colorful parades and ancestral dances. Each town has its own dress and masks.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to try traditional food, visit local families, talk with them and share the joy of the party.
The experience is available only on the days of Corpus Christi.

We are leaving at 8am from San Cristobal, Iguana Hostel Calle Chiapa de Corzo 16 and we will be back in San Cristobal at aprox. 8pm.
