The experience begins with the daily walk to the Tzotzil community of Zinacantán (place of bats). You will arrive at a local house to meet your hosts and take a look at the kitchen where you will later prepare the food. If it is milpa season, you will take a one-hour walk to learn about the work they do in the community. When you arrive at the traditional corn field you will learn everything that can be found in it, as well as the why and wherefore of the products. You will harvest the ingredients needed for cooking when you return to your hosts home. In this half day activity, you will taste and get into the rhythm of life of the native people in Zinacantán, feel the sun on your skin, smell the smoke in the air and taste local and traditional dishes of this charming town.
