Description

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.

But we go above and beyond: we can walk in a field or watch the production at a local bakery, it all depends on availability and your interests. One IS safe – THIS EXPERIENCE IS A GENUINE INTERACTION WITH LOCAL PEOPLE. Not only will we learn about the living tseltal culture but we will also share it and experience it.

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