Santa Cruz Del Quiche Things to See and Do

Santa Cruz del QuichĂ© is a pleasant enough town in which to spend a day or two, although it is a little dirty. The town center, dominated by grand white church, has quite a buzz about it when everyone gathers around the square to people-watch in the late afternoon. There is also a small plaza in front of the former military barracks. Not to miss are the ruins of the Mayan capital Ku’markaaj, only a short ride away. Market days in Santa Cruz del QuichĂ©
are Thursday and Sunday, but there is a general market selling everyday goods around 7a Calle. On the road south back to Chichicastenango, amid pine forests, is the pretty Laguna Lemoa.
