Santiago Sacatepéquez Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 22 photos

All Saint´s day.

This small village (34 kms from Guatemala city) is located in a beautiful valley and it´s famous for the gigant kites constructed to celebrate the All Saints day. They fly the kite´s from the cemetery. Santiago Sacatepequez is a kackchickel town, but also you can see this festivity in other nearby villages as Santa Maria Cauque and Sumpango (see my Sumpango page for more information and pictures)

They started to built the kites in september, and spend a lot of time and money.

They fly the kite´s to drive out the bad spirits. It´s an amazing experience.
