From Panajachal we took a bus to the small town of Chichicastenango to experience "market day" in Guatemala. Chichicastenango is the largest local market in Guatemala, and people come from miles around to trade and purchase goods. The drive was through mountainous roads with hairpin turns and amazing scenery. The market was very busy with tourists and locals.

We shopped for several hours, taking breaks in the restaurants with balconies over the market, where we could watch the action below. At the end of the day our bus took us back to Antigua.
