  • It has no comparison with chichicastenango as this market is frequented only by local people who produce in the fields of the area and leads to sell what it has. It is a real market, free of trinkets for tourists: the old lady who carries four coconuts, who carries a basket of newborn chicks, who, waiting for customers, roasts a few pieces of meat with those who prepare tortillas next to them. At 7.30 in the morning we were the only two tourists visiting the market. Beautiful because it is authentic and because it reminds us of our old markets from 70-80 years ago. People dressed colorful cn supercolored baskets on the head. Photos not finished

  • In Sololá we visit the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption and the market that is right in front. We did this when we were passing by public transport (buses) from the large artisan market of Chichicastenango to Panajachel, on a Sunday. The sololá market is located in one of the corners of the main square, occupies a full block and consists of 2 floors in which you will find a variety of agricultural products, meat and a wide range of handicraft products, products similar to those that can find in other markets that we visited during our tour of Guatemala. On the second floor is an area of typical Guatemalan meals with different options, which were rich and economical at lunchtime. This place we liked a lot because it was one more way to get in touch with the local culture and to have tasted the typical food of the place.
