* '''Mayan villages in the surrounding mountains'''. The easiest way to visit the villages is in a day tour from San Cristóbal. Plus, a good guide will help to give you a deeper understanding of modern Maya life. San Juan Chamula and Zinacantan are the most well-known (and visited) Maya villages, but there are others, such as Tenejapa and San Andres Larrainzar, that are equally as fascinating, and they receive very little tourism. The best day to visit the Maya communities are during their weekly markets and festivals. '''Cielo y Tierra Tours''' offer excellent half-day tours to Chamula and Zinacantan, as well as some of the more remote Maya villages. Visit their website for further information. []
