Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Gray Line, Antigua 03001 Guatemala

You will be picked up at your hotel in Antigua Guatemala and transfer to Chichicastenango

Stop At: Mercado de Chichicastenango, Btw 7a & 8a Calle, Chichicastenango 14006 Guatemala

Upon our arrival at the market we will start our walking tour inside the market. It is the center of the city and at the heart of commercial life of "maxeños" (name given to the indigenous people of Chichicastenango, derived from Max which means Tomás in the Quiché language). The merchants descend every Thursday and Sunday to the central square to sell their products in this impressive indigenous market that has changed very little over the centuries.
We will observe the colorful handicrafts and handmade by local inhabitants of the región also you can see various merchandise, such as clay crafts, typical textiles, fruits, vegetables, meats and seafood, flowers and the regional costumes of the place.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Santo Tomas Church, Plaza Mayor, Chichicastenango 14006 Guatemala

We are also going to visit Santo Tomás Church, built in 1540 on the basis of a pre-Hispanic archaeological temple. This church is a splendid example of colonial architecture, as the Mayan and Latin influence mixes both inside and outside of the church over time.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Cementerio De Chichicastenango, Chichicastenango, Guatemala

We visit the Cemetery, the Graves are often painted in the favourite colour of the deceased, while shamans can be seen burning incense, candles and in special cases, chickens, in offerings to the gods. The colors themselves are steeped in symbolism—white represents purity, turquoise is for protection, yellow represents the sun’s life force, and others pay homage to the favorite color of the deceased.

Duration: 50 minutes

Stop At: Mercado de Chichicastenango, Btw 7a & 8a Calle, Chichicastenango 14006 Guatemala

Emilio was the best guide. Without him, it may not have been as enjoyable. Warning: the market day may not be for everyone. Emilio helped us enjoy this intriguing place through his knowledge and enthusiasm about his culture and Guate's fascinating history. Thank you for working with great guides!
