Named for the Quetzal bird--one of Guatemala's national symbols--Quetzaltenango once included the territories controlled by K'iche' Mayans, a pre-Columbian tribe eventually supplanted by Spanish conquistadores.
Explore hidden gems such as Galeria Imox and Solola Market. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Xetulul Theme Park and Xocomil. Venture out of the city with trips to Panajachel (Mayanke, Ceramica Pintada a Mano & La Galeria), Indian Nose (in San Pedro La Laguna) and Xocomil (in Retalhuleu). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Ketzali Accessories, explore the ancient world of Tak'alik Ab'aj, admire the striking features of Teatro Municipal de Quetzaltenango, and contemplate the geological forces at Santa Maria Volcano.
