Fantastic local expert
Tony is, besides being an awesome human being and the founder of Cultura Distinta, a very knowledgeable person when it comes to San Cristóbal and Chiapas. He guides the graffiti and culture tour – a great way for you to start exploring San Cris – himself. Don’t take our word for it?! Please read the reviews below 🙂
We work mainly with local cultural centers, artisans, communities and entrepeneurs. We love to share those places, and work with people who can help you understand San Cris, Chiapas or even Mexico better.
We are not yet another tour agency, driving vans around all day long to all the known landmarks. No, we offer something different and unique, off the beaten track, but a learning experience none the less.
