Description

Visit the spectacular outdoor market of Chichicastenango – one of the world’s most famous outdoor markets! People watch and shop if you wish, but the focus is on the Quiche Maya; their customs, traditions, and spiritual practices. There is mysticism in the cool mountain air. You will be amazed by the religious blend where colonial Spanish Catholicism, modern evangelism and ancient Mayan tradition, blend in a uniquely harmonious fashion. There is something deeply moving about watching a Mayan shaman, engulfed by incense and surrounded by flowers, praying to a catholic God and at the same time practicing ancient Mayan rituals.

Visit Shaman Hill and the cemetery where you see Fire Protection Ceremonies, go to the shaman stall in the market to find all the items used in the ceremonies. Meet the indigenous mayor and learn how the confradia system allows for the elders to maintain the ancient customs, even in modern times. Learn about the 5000 year old Mayan calendar and how it works
