Shopping - Market Guatemala City - Guatemala

Shopping in Guatemala is a great experience. Prices are low and there is a huge variety of quality artisan crafts, clothing, pottery and jewelry for you to take home with you. Central Market located in the Historic Center, the Craft Market in Zone 13 and Proceres Mall in the Zona Viva are the most popular districts to shop in.

If it is genuine originals from all corners of the country that you are after then make the Central Market your first stop. Located on 9th Avenue and 6th Street in the heart of the historic centre, this large market is divided into several sections. One section deals almost entirely with leather goods including boots, holsters, hats and wallets. Then there is a craft section where you’ll find authentic woven huipils, cloths, table centerpieces, clay items and handmade sandals.

Situated close to Zone 13’s International Airport is The Craft Market where you can also buy an assortment of souvenirs, ceramics, wooden objects, leather goods and jewelry. The Craft Market is generally open Monday through Saturday from 8a.m. to 6p.m.

For those after a more western shopping experience in Guatemala there is Los Proceres Mall. Located close to some of the best hotels on 16th street in Zone 10, prices are mid to high and there is an extensive choice of clothing stores and restaurants along with several movie theaters.
