Head to Chichicastenango to stroll through its popular and very colorful market. Every Thursday and Sunday, local vendors gather in the central part of town to offer a wide variety of goods, such as fruit, vegetables, flowers, handicrafts, pottery, and even livestock. Make sure to taste some of the local specialties during your free time in the market area before continuing on to the whitewashed columns of the Iglesia de Santo Tomás, a well-preserved church that dates back to 1540.

Next up on your itinerary is the small village of Panajachel, perched on the shores of the massive Lake Atitlán, Central America's deepest lake. Admire this peaceful body of water and the 3 spectacular volcanoes in the background, all while enjoying a guided stroll through the town's historic streets.
