You can easily catch up with locals in the bar in san cristobal de las casas or ask some agency to give u contact for the horse ride to San Juan Chamula. You will pass through amazing wood (seeing incredible blue birds) by nice streams etc. Village itself was definetly strange experiance itself. Funny thing is they call themselves catholics but they are practising their own pagan tradition sacrifying chicken in the church, or u can see shamans getting seriously drink inside within the ceremony. Due to their belief that taking a photo takes their soul u cant take it (allthough IMHO its just a tourist trick since they are selling postcards with their photos but let them be). Honestly we have enjoyed more travel by horses to the village than village itself, its very small and people especialy during crazy ceremony running on horses from one cross to another are not friendly and want u to get away. Food is quite delicious and some nice drinks as well (on the street market) . Just be careful not interupting their ceremonies and then have a pleasent stay.
