Chiquimula Things to See and Do

follow us

There isn’t a great deal to do here by way of the tourist activities. Chiquimula is a working town and it is hectic, dirty and very hot. One thing you can do is sit in the shade of the trees in the central plaza and watch the local chiquimultecos as they labor hard in the heat. The church is opposite the square and behind is the smaller of the two mercado municipal where you can wander through and delight in the kitsch gear on offer, as well as the usual culinary treats found in see what delights are on offer! Half a kilometer (0.3 miles) east of town there is the iglesia vieja, a baroque church destroyed and abandoned after the 1765 earthquake and which is now being restored.
