PRESS NAME OF TOWN TO SEE PICTURES

Chichicastenango is one of the major markets towns for the Mayans in El Quiche.  It is about a three hour drive from Guatemala City.  The market days are Thursday and Sunday.  On these days the town is inundated with all sorts of goods, agriculture, artisan, livestock animals, etc.  The place becomes a beehive of commercial activities.  In a nutshell these pictures try to capture the essence of the trading activities on an earyl Thursday morning.  If you travel to Chichicastenango...be ready to bargain and above all enjoy this experience!!

 

 

Where do you stay?  There is a nice colonial hotel in the middle of town "HOTEL SANTO TOMAS"...try it...you'll like it!
