Of course everyone goes to Chichicastenango (chichi) to visit the market on Thursday or Sunday. If you do so as well, try to arrive one day before so you can get up very early on the market day. The market does not realy start before the most tourists get out there bed. So if you arrive at 5.45-6.00 you will probably be the only tourist. You can have a 'quiet' breakfast at the middle of the square between local people. After breakfast go and sit on the stairs of one of the two churches and enjoy seeing the market comming alive with a fantastic sunrise.
