Everything is on offer at Chichicastenango, from brightly embroidered cloths and beautiful bags to medicinal plants and ceramic crafts. The food produce is also just as incredible as the crafts and the colorful array of traditional dress worn by the indigenous women makes for stunning photography. Santo Tomas church overlooks the market place, steeped in Mayan history and ritual flower sellers use the steps to set up shop. Away from the main market and the hustle and bustle, don’t miss the chance to see the colorful cemetery that is so evocative of Guatemalan culture.
