Things to Do


Chichicastenango indigenous market

Chichicastenango is the most famous Indian market in Central America. This bustling market is the gathering point where hundreds of craftsmen and villagers from all over the highlands sell their wares every Thursday and Sunday. Stalls display colorful hand-woven textiles, hand-carved masks, small nativities, Jade works, musical instruments, and even wicker furniture. The town is also famous for the church of Santo Tomas, a true colonial gem built in 1540, where shamans usually perform Maya rituals. You can also hike up the hill to the Pascual Abaj ritual site to see if any local shaman is performing rituals there.

Forest hike and canopy tour

Begin your adventure with a moderate hike in a tropical forest private reserve. The reserve contains interesting plants and animals including monkeys, the raccoon-like coatis and exotic birds such as Guatemala's national bird, the quetzal. The Nature reserve also has an enclosed butterfly preserve with a breeding laboratory with approximately 200 living specimens. If you are in for a bit more adventure, end your hike with an exciting canopy tour. The adventure involves a 30-minute steep uphill hike but adventurous spirits are rewarded with lovely views of the lake whilst on the canopy ride.

Santiago Atitlan and Maximon

Board a local boat and depart for Santiago Atitlan, one of the most picturesque communities surrounding Lake Atitlan. You will pass by local fishermen, indigenous Maya women doing their washing, and men dressed in their traditional Santiago shorts. Once in Santiago, our guide will take us to visit the Maya god Maximon (and hopefully to attend a ritual) and learn about spiritualism and the beliefs of the T'zutujil Maya. After visiting Maximon, visit the colonial church and local market to admire and learn about the distinctive textiles and primitive art that is famous in this area.
