Market - Market Santiago Atitlan - Guatemala

The market in Santiago Atitlán is at its best on Fridays and Sundays. Vendors set up shop to sell local crafts and goods to those that pass by, while the Mayan women dress in traditional costumes. Stroll past small tiendas where women and little girls gather to produce tortillas that sell five for one quetzal. View the town's male elders as they sport cowboy hats and over sized belt buckles. All make for great photos but be sure to ask before snapping a shot of a local - it is insulting to simply treat locals as tourist attractions.
