Lake Atitlan Market Tours
Join us for an experience that will be a feast for your senses as we explore the vibrant, colorful, and bustling traditional indoor/outdoor Mayan markets of the villages along the shores of Lake Atitlan Guatemala. On market days stalls fill the maze-like markets and spill out into the streets where local farmers, artisans, and vendors sell their goods.
Neighboring villages have their market days on designated days of the week where vendors sell fruits, vegetables, nuts, meat, livestock, hand-woven textiles, spices, flowers, hammocks, ceramics, home furnishings, thread, candles, incense, blankets, baskets, jewelry, handbags, clothing, belts, and wooden crafts.
The markets are also a great place to try the authentic local food (comida típica). Sample the local food such as chuchitos, chille relleno, beet salad enchiladas, and the traditional drink arroz con leche or try fresh fruit such as sliced mangos that are served with nuts, chile, and lime.
