General Info

Journey into the heart of rural Chiapas to gain a deeper understanding of its people and landscapes. The Chiapas countryside features wide, green fields of the Ejido Miguel Aleman banana farm. This cooperative banana plantation is a rural community that works together for the benefit of all its members.

In the town that owns and runs the banana co-op, you’ll visit the community center or Short Description: elementary school to meet and mingle with the village children and their dedicated teachers and social workers. Adult literacy is also taught here.

Stop at the banana packing plant to discover how the whole community works together. The profits from banana sales are distributed among the community.

Part of the proceeds of this tour will go to this community center learning program and you will be given a school kit pack containing some of the basic day to day needs of the community children, which you will be able to donate to one of the children at the community center.

At the town church — an essential part of the community — your guide talks about some regional customs.

On the way back, catch a last glimpse of life in rural Chiapas before returning to the pier.
