Guatemala Things to Do: 250 reviews and 474 photos

Chichicastenango

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.
