An incredibly scenic boat ride takes you to the village of San Juan La Laguna, where you will experience the different ways this community keep their traditions alive. Visit a women’s textile cooperative to see hand-weaving and natural dyeing processes, the studio homes of celebrated naïf painters and the shrine of the Mayan God Maximon, where you will learn about the beliefs of the Tz'utujil Maya. The day finishes with a boat trip back across the lake
The idea of the cooperatives of San Juan de la Laguna is for women to come together and work on a particular trade such as arts and crafts, textiles in the form of weaving or midwifery and medicine. By working together as a co-operative, they are able to keep costs low benefits as high as possible, which primarily is used to educate their children.
