Chiantla

The road north from Huehuetenango towards Paquix passes right through the middle of Chiatla, five kilometers from Huehue. It is a pretty village with a large plaza and two parks around which are the town hall with its clock tower to the east and the church to the west. Everything you need is around the square: Banrural with Cajero 5B (7A Ca.), Internet café (5a Av. and 7a Ca.), Hospital Privado (6a Ca. Tel: 502-7764-5396, E-mail: cepromediccuchumatanes@hotmail.com), Casa de la Cultura (south side of church) and a Despensar Familiar supermarket (7a Ca.). For food there is Café Rosales (7a Ca.), Comedor Salmeri (6a Av. and 7a Ca.) and Comedor La Bendición (7a Ca.) with the Pinky Pool House next door. There is also a small café in the central park.

 

A peak inside the Iglesia Nuestra Señora de Candelaria church is well worth it; see the murals - depicting the Spanish watching over the Maya working in the fields and their conversion to Catholicism – and the special glass-encased altar; and take a minute to listen to the prayers being said out loud in Mam, the local Mayan dialect.

 

Buses leave from 1a Calle and 1a Av. in Huehue about every 20 minutes.
