Don't see a trip scheduled for your date of travel or area of interest?
We offer regularly scheduled trips through out the year but, if you are looking for an alternative date or a special focus, you should schedule your own trip. We'll need a few months advance notice, but will be delighted to work with you and your group to create a memorial experience exploring the Zapatista movement in Chiapas, Mexico.<br /><br />Side trips are available to ancient Mayan cities can also be arranged.
A typical year of planned travel:
January: New Years Trip. Come celebrate the anniverary of the Zapatista Insurrection.
February: To Be Announced. Early spring delegations have included trips for musicians interested in making music with secondary students and clowns who want to engage communities with their special magic. We have also sponsored trips focused on the productive projects, including womens co-ops with an emphasis on supporting the commercial aspects of the Zapatista movement.
March/April: Alternative SpringBreak. Designed with the University in mind. (Anyone is welcome to join!) Who wants to spend spring break drunk on a beach? Come to Chiapas and meet the Zapatistas. You will have an opportunity to do good work, experience indigenous culture and perhaps change your life. You tell us the dates of your spring break and we will work from there.
June/July/August: Summer trips are abundant and diverse. Trips specifically designed for educators/students interested in learning about the autonomous education system or medical personnel interested in the organization of Zapatista health services... or Service trips which allow delegates to get their hands dirty helping out (help construct a school, plant some trees, pick some coffee, paint a school). We end the summer season celebrating the anniversary of the juntas de buen gobierno (the civilian government of the Zapatistas) on August 10th.
October: Come celebrate Day of the Dead in Chiapas.
December: New Years Trip. Come celebrate the anniverary of the Zapatista Insurrection.
We also invite you (and 5 of your friends) to design your own Zapatista experience ~ Click here to begin your special delegation application
