Guatemala Things to Do: 250 reviews and 474 photos
At sunday we took the local bus from Panajachel to Chichicastenango to visit the market, one of the largest local markets in the country. Two times a week at thursday and sunday it's marketday in Chichi. The day before many Mayan people from the villages in the mountians come allready to the town.
Everywhere in the streets around the Plaza are marketstalls. Left behind the church are the stalls with vegetables, fruits, spices, clothing and other stuff for the local people. In front of the church in the streets leading to the Plaza are the stalls with embroidered clothes, masks and other touristy goods.
When we visited the twon at the 1th of november there was a procession and all the streets were filled with colourfully dressed local people. We didn't hardly see any stall, but enjoyed the lifeliness of everything happening in the streets.
