Visit Solola highland market
Village markets are the lifeblood of the local community in remote areas of Guatemala where the modern world has yet to make much impact. The incredibly intricate traditional costume worn by locals is certainly not put on for the benefit of tourists.
You can get an insight into this rustic world at one of the small yet lively markets where indigenous traders congregate to sell fresh produce or livestock and swap village gossip. Some of our favourites include Sololá, Almalonga, San Francisco del Alto and Zunil.
