Famous market

Saying Chichicastenango is the exact same as saying MARKET. With capital letters. Many years ago, the people of the villages undertook long walks around with the goods on their backs, tireless, heading to Chichicastenango. It was-and is-one of the largest indigenous markets throughout Guatemala and certainly the most famous. Some came casting a blanket on the floor, preparing something to eat and waiting for market day. On Thursdays and Sundays, early in the morning, all sellers arrange their vegetables, fruits, blankets, food utensils, handicrafts, ceramics ... Anything can be sold here ... Yes, you should haggle a lot. Prices can fall incredibly with a little patience and good humor. In the afternoon, the market is losing life slowly, but it is the best time to get good prices, as traders prefer to get rid of their goods before returning up the slopes with them. Without doubt, the best thing of all, is the noise, the smell of food, the market cross-talk ... One can not leave Guatemala without going to Chichi market.

Tradition and colour

On Thursdays and Sundays throughout the year there's a popular market in Chichicastenango, one of the Indian markets. Chichicastenango is a quiet town but the hustle and bustle starts from the night before market day, people come from all over the country to display and sell their products. It is an explosion of color and odors. The market extends along the village streets. before it was held only in the square in front of the church, but it has become a tourist attraction and is becoming increasingly larger. When the day ends, everything ends suddenly, and, as quickly as it began. you can see how men and women packed their goods again, all this until the next market day.

Fantastically different place

Guatemala is an untapped tourist destination and makes every visit an adventure. Chichicastenango market, one of the most famous in the country, is a must. The cluster of people, colours, smells makes it a fantastically different place.
