Chichicastenango Tours

Chichicastenango, or Chichi as it is lovingly called, is cut off from the mainland by the jagged peaks of Mesoamerica. Like many other places in the region, this colorful little highland town straddles two contrasting worlds – the ancient and the modern. This isolated corner of the land exists in a time bubble of its own. Chichi is home to a robust indigenous culture. Chichi’s bustling market on Thursdays and Sundays is a major travel attraction, with tourists pouring over colorful local textiles and artifacts. The town’s churches, its architecture, vibrant local culture, and surrounding highlands make it a tantalizing destination when visiting Guatemala.
