    Check out - this is a group of women who have banded together in a cooperative so that they could stay home with their kids. They are delightful women - they offer weavings, weaving lessons, and cultural presentations to individuals and/or groups. Definitely worth a stop!Matthew Pepper

  • Public Laundry

    San Antonio Aguas Calientes Local Customs

    The public laundry sinks that are present in the main plazas in Guatemala villages around Antigua are a perfect glimpse into the lives of the locals.

We found it fascinating to watch and the women...

  • All Saint´s day.

    Sumpango Things to Do

    This festivity takes place the 1º of November, time to visit the cemetery and to drive out the bad spirits through fliying kite´s. Then it´s time to eat, drink and dance. I found Sumpango (even when is less colorful) more authentic than Santiago, less tourists and more local people.
