It's easy to get to the valley pueblos by bus, colectivo, etc. but the higher up you go, the dicier public transportation becomes
Ah, yes. a good thing for those inexperienced in high mountain or isolated rural coastal areas to keep in mind. This becomes even more complex in the Chiapas Highlands where some villages may be Zapatista villages and some may be traditional villages and some may be protestant evangelical villages and indigenous folks in these various places may actually dislike each other somewhat intensely wishing upon one another the working end of a machete so one may find that the fortuitous arrival of a small pickup truck that will give one a ride back down the hill in that packed-with-humans pickup is the only way one is not going to be spending the night freezing at 11,000 feet in a place that is dicy enough during the day. To make matters even more complex, that taxi that gave you a ride from, say, Larrainza to Aldama may not and probably will not fetch you when you wish to leave because he will not be welcome to solicit business there. If this happens to you please remember that "indian law" prevails honky interloper.
