Our vision

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”

Mark Twain

We believe that travelling is all about experiencing, learning and adapting to a different culture. In order for you to be able to do this, we have put together an extensive program covering tours, experiences and workshops. In addition we have an event calendar with an overview of things to do in San Cristóbal.

Who we are

Cultura Distinta is a collective of cultural centres, artisans, and local entrepeneurs offering a wide array of different tours and experiences in San Cristobal. Our graffiti and culture tour is a great starting point to discover what San Cristóbal has to offer. We show you the rich street graffiti culture of San Cris, and visit the cultural centers and local entrepeneurs (chocolate, bakeries and cafes) we work together with.

Our mission

To offer locally based experiences and workshops which can contribute to your knowledge of the culture and traditions of Chiapas. We work together with artisans throughout the city who can teach you about chocolate making, weaving techniques, embroidery and more. Check our workshops and experiences for a full overview.
