The famous market of Chichicastenango is steeped in tradition and atmosphere.  High quality handicrafts such as colourful masks and hand woven textiles line the stalls. Many rural people travel to town on market day and it is fascinating to see the unique blend of pagan and Catholic practices carried out on the steps of the churches.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN CHICHICASTENANGO

LOCAL MARKET

We recommend an early start to feel the atmosphere build and see the locals arriving from outlying villages to set up their stalls. Thursdays and Sundays.

EXPLORE

The best way to see this lovely market town is to explore on foot. Walking past the local church with the incense burning and locals dressed in full colour is a sight to behold.

WEAVING

Guatemalans are known for their weaving and their bright colours.  Chichi is a great place to not only buy some of their weavings, but also a chance to watch them creating.
