People should be aware of cultural issues in this region.  While San Cristóbal has done a great job of cleaning up, there is real destitute poverty just around the corner if you scratch the surface.  The native people suffer a lot so please respect them and treat them with kindness when you come into contact.

People should be aware of cultural issues in this region.  While San Cristóbal has done a great job of cleaning up, there is real destitute poverty just around the corner if you scratch the surface.  The native people suffer a lot so please respect them and treat them with kindness when you come into contact.  Also, the Zapatista communities are sick and tired of the "hand out" mentality of a lot of NGOs.  If you want to do something with the Zapatistas, do it on their terms.  Ask questions, do not tell anything.  They have a lot more to teach you than you do them.
