The Tzotzil Maya villages of San Juan Chamula and San Lorenzo de Zinacantán.

Both places have retained much of their unique cultural identity, including a religion that is a blend of traditional animist belief and Catholicism.

The church at Chamula, where you may be a spectator at some intense religious ritual. No photos allowed to be taken inside, but was full of lit candles, saint's in glass cabinet's, pine needles on the floor and many local indigenous people.
