Immerse yourself in the indigenous cultures of Guatemala visiting the town of Chichicastenango and discovering its lively traditional market. What's more, you'll visit beautiful Lake Atitlan too.
Chichicastenango Market & Lake Atitlan Tour
After picking you up from your chosen meeting point in Antigua Guatemala at 7:30 am, we'll set off towards the Guatemalan highlands to visit one of the country's most picturesque indigenous villages: Chichicastenango.
We'll visit the famous Chichicastenango Market, where we'll get to know the indigenous culture of the region. The market sells all kinds of products: from fresh locally grown produce and homemade delicacies to intricately handmade crafts.
Next, we'll visit the Church of Santo Tomás, the focal point of the town: this 16th century church was built atop a pre-Columbian temple platform, and the original Mayan steps remain in use by indigenous priests. After exploring Chichicastenango, you'll have time to eat lunch (not included).
With renewed energy, we'll make our way to Panajachel, the largest town located on the shores of Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The views of the volcanoes behind the lake are truly captivating.
At the end of an excellent day of sightseeing, we'll make our way back to Antigua Guatemala.
