I had hoped for a tour in Jan. 2015. Sadly, Alex Aranda has moved to Merida and is no longer offering tours in Chiapas. Perhaps the listing should be removed?

Alex is knowledgeable, although somewhat opinionated. But he readily admits that. I would not recommend trying to go to the Mayan communities around San Cristobal de las Casas without a guide, and Alex is an expert guide. He says he is tolerated, but a better...More

I've been in Mexico for 3 months, and this tour has been my favourite thing. Usually weary of the necessity of guides, Alex was worth every peso. His knowledge and relations with both pueblos create an incredible experience. You learn so much about every aspect...More

Typically I'm not a "tours" type of person, preferring to do things on my own. However, based on my previous understanding of the Chiapas highlands (this was my second trip to the area) and Alex's outstanding reviews, I really felt that making plans with him...More
