Schools for Chiapas encourages families, classes, collectives, and organizations to consider visiting the Zapatistas together. Kids of all ages generally have a wonderful time in the autonomous, Mayan communities of Chiapas, Mexico.
We have now organized over 75 delegations to Chiapas and some of the most rewarding experiences have been with groups who specially planned their trip together. Creating a specially designed trip allows for maximum flexibility regarding living conditions, focus of meetings, transportation, timing, and group activities. Schools for Chiapas can provide rustic-style camping trips directly in Zapatista communities or city-based travel from comfortable hotels in modern vans. Our base cost for delegations of five or more people is two weeks of the minimum wage of your country per person, however city-based trips and trips involving substantial travel can be substantually more expensive. We will do our best to work with you to design something that meets your needs and resources.
Your group can participate in a construction project, paint a mural and work in a hospital, or harvest coffee, corn or cacao. The possibilities are almost endless in a specially designed trip.
