"Better Crafts Elsewhere" Chichicastenango Tourist Trap Tip by Babzz

Chichicastenango Tourist Traps: 2 reviews and 1 photos

This might sound weird given that Chichi is THE marketplace, but I found that the crafts were better in Panajachel and Antigua. A lot of the masks had chipped paint or looked otherwise worn, and there were hardly any paintings, which was a huge disappointment for me since I had been holding off until Chichi to buy one in the anticipation that it was here that I would find the best selection-not so! So don't put off your shopping until you get to Chichi.
