It all began with the admiration of the landscapes overlooking two of the main Mountains of Central Mexico, the "Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl" referring to the volcanoes Popocatépetl ("the Smoking Mountain") and Iztaccíhuatl ("white woman" in Nahuatl). From the stunning views of their valley, Chinelos who were in a way rebels, always believed in trying new things and adventure. Chinelos are carnival characters, from the state of Morelos, Mexico. The word Chinelos comes from the náhuatl dialect "tzineloa", which means "the one who moves well the feet and hips" or "good hip moves". Every year these characters dance at the beat of a band during carnival season to entertain, have fun and show off their dance moves.
