Guatemala

Plenty to see and do!

After a much loved stay in Belize, it was time to go! So here i am in Guatemala. Much like Belize, it is lovely! There's plenty to see and do here.
Chichicastenango marke
Every Thursday and Sunday, the Chichicastenango market is a colorful, but really chaotic market that brings in vendors from around the country who come to sell their immaculate hand-made products. Besides the array of high-quality items, the atmosphere itself is enough to make the trip worthwhile. All sorts of textiles make the grade here. There's loads of women’s blouses made by the Maya women. I didn't buy anything regretfully. I just don't have the room.
The Chichicastenango market can be easily reached from Guatemala City, Antigua and Quetzaltenango.

If you like to hike you should go to the the Pacaya volcano it is one of the most, if not the most climbed volcanoes in Guatemala. Rising to an altitude of 8,371 feet, the Pacaya volcano has been continually active since 1965. Found near Lake Atitlan, you can hike the volcano by yourself, but for safety reasons and for the sake of information, it is a good idea to use a guide. One of the biggest thrills to climbing Pacaya, besides the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, is the chance you will have to peer inside its cone. And what a sight! Really, it defo worth doing!! Although, my legs are pretty saw today!! lol....
