Salamá Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 9 photos

Salamá, which means "tranquil waters" in Quiche, is the capital of the department of Baja Verapaz. There is a large colonial church on the main square which is quite ornate and contains many old gold-painted altars, as well as statues from the 17th Century.

Salamá prides itself in its celebration of Semana Santa, and can be compared to celebrations in Antigua and San Cristòbal Verapaz.

It's a nice town with some colonial vestiges from the old times. There is a regular market on Sundays.

The most visited tourist attraction of Salamá is the "Biotopo del Quetzal Nature Reserve"

Altitude: 3,146 feet (945mts).

Population: 13,000
