    San Cristobal is a beautiful quiet town. There are plenty of things to do around. It is also a great place to make a stop in your journey, enjoy the surrounding nature. We will try as much as possible to help you to get around and make your time here very special :)
    I believe it will be a great opportunity for anyone who wants to see how life looks like in a Mayan town. You can learn about Mayan culture and tradition as well as their beautiful handcraft.
    We can teach you a bit how to set up a fair trade business.
    Also if you are working on your portfolio it might be a great chance, we will obviously tag you in any of your part of the job.
