WHET YOUR APPETITE

With its many groups of indigenous peoples that fiercely maintain centuries old traditions, from style of dress to religious practice to their original Maya languages, a journey through Chiapas offers a window into living and well as ancient Maya culture. Bask in colonial San Cristobal’s pastel colors, rustic charm and evocative markets and meet local friends and hosts along the way who grant us privileged insiders’ access into the cultural heart of their vibrant region.

Our fixed departure, small group programs in Chiapas often coincide with one the region’s spectacular local festivals. One such event is the carnival celebration n the deeply traditional indigenous town of San Juan Chamula, where it is celebrated with feasts, visits to sacred shrines, the ‘jaguar dance’ and dozens of men running across a burning thatch to achieve ritual purification. While few foreigners ever experience them, the colorful festivals of Chiapas are amongst the most vivid expressions of folkloric tradition in all of Mexico.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

At Culture Xplorers, we insist on being not only responsible travelers, but on making a positive impact on the communities with which we come into contact. We work hand-in-hand with local leaders in the destinations we visit to spend time as well as money in their communities, to exchange views and to support the living traditions that make these destinations unique.

As a catalyst to these deep-rooted partnerships in each of our destinations, the non-profit Culture Xplorers Foundation was created in 2007 with the goal of fostering the sustainability of local culture in indigenous communities worldwide.

TREAD LIGHTY

We constantly look for ways to minimize our carbon footprint before, during and even after our travels. We start in the office by not producing or printing any printed brochures. We have adhered to this leading-edge environmental practice since 2005, sending all our correspondence electronically as PDFʼs, from program itineraries to comprehensive pre-departure materials, to invoices, to our feedback & evaluation forms after the journey ends.

Traveling in extremely small groups (maximum 10 travelers) helps us minimize our ecological footprint in other ways. We stay in locally run, upscale boutique lodging brimming with local character — often in converted historic buildings, rural haciendas & renovated manor homes. This re-purposed lodging not only transmit a deeply authentic sense of place, they eliminate the need for additional tourism infrastructure.

When it comes to food ways and traditions, we emphasize visits with farmers and local producers and during each of our trips we participate in a hands-on culinary workshop focused on locally sourced foods & regional specialties.
