Overview
More
An important private collection of traditional Mayan textiles which were given to the owner, Sergio Castro, in thanks for his tireless work for the people of Chiapas. The exhibit includes very rare ceremonial costumes from many communities in Chiapas and are a sign of the high esteem the people have for Don Sergio.Personal tours can be arranged by calling Sergio Castro and scheduling an appointment. Tours are conducted in English, French, Italian and Spanish.Visitors are asked to make a donation to help support Sergio Castro's work of building schools and clean water systems and providing wound care to people with serious burns. Sergio does not accept money from the people he helps and instead uses donations from visitors to the museum to buy building materials and medical supplies

Sr. Castro personally gives the tours, and his story is wonderful. He charges nothing but hopes that you will give a no-pressure donation to help him in his important work of healing the wounds of the poor that have no real access to medical care....More
