Guatemala Things to Do: 250 reviews and 474 photos


On thursday and sunday here takes place one of Guatemala's largest indigenous market.
The villagers spread out there vegetables, fruits. chunks of chalk (ground to a powder, mixed with water and used to softendried maze), balls of wax, handmade harnesses and other merchandise and wait for customers.
Tourist-orientated handcraft stalls selling masks, textiles, potery and so on also occupy the plaza and the streets around.
