Itinerary Details

Operated by: Experiencias Chiapas

For a day, forget about the digital world and travel in time...
We will travel to Amatenango del Valle, approx. 50 minutes from San Cristobal, a Tzeltal village where women to this day keep the tradition of pottery as it was done in pre-Hispanic times. The potters will explain the tradition and share the secrets of clay.
We will visit the workshop and gallery of Juana Gomez, creator of the giant jaguars, a nationally recognized potter and even abroad.
We will try a typical breakfast prepared for us by the artisan and participate in a workshop with her, during which we will try our artistic talent and have fun as children again.

An experience for all ages, particularly recommended for families with children!
