i went there for the storytime which was so cool! get to know a lot about chiapas, indigenous, culture, tradition and mayan legends.
when you enter for the event, they clean your energy with copal, a traditional medicine they used in the ceremony. besides the storytime to listen lots of stories and legends about different cummunities, you also get a local drink, a pox, and a storybook they made. i do admire this charity organization and what they are doing.

I met Amy at La Ensenanza, right in her cosy room filled with stories which combine the mystical with the real. I went there because I wanted to do something more than just another site-seeing activity. Amy offered an experience which awakens the senses whilst recounting stories which are sown into the traditions of communities in Chiapas. I was greeted in such a personal intimate approach and loved the flavorsome red blend known as tascalate! I highly recommend a visit to this fantastic project and to support such a creative initiative!

It was a very nice walk where I learned a lot... I got to know some spots in town that I didn't notice before and history about the city.
It doesn't take long and it is totaly woth it.
It is also very nice to support a project that helps the community (students, children, etc.)

the free walking tour is everyday at 15:00 from central park in english and spanish.
the guide is the one with red umbrella.
i did the tour with the lovely tour guide Fabi. she gave us the most interesting tour, with all the legends, histories, stories, where to eat, what to do, where to drink and where to dance, and all the funny traditions here. chiapas and san cristobal are really so amazing!!!
and this free walking tour is a social project for helping scholarship and supporting other projects as well. with some tips, you can enjoy everything of san cristobal and doing something good at the same time. i feel so involved here now=D
