Favorite thing: San Juan Chamula is a unique Mayan municipality and township in Chiapas, with over 50,000 inhabitants which has unique autonomous status within Mexico. No outside police or military are allowed in the village. Chamulas have their own police force. Chamula has its own laws and its own customs.
A popular tourist destination, it is famous for its market and for its Church of San Juan. I spent there half a day in January of 2011.
