    San Antonio Palopó is one of the more traditional villages around the lake. The people here are Cakchiquel Mayan and the men wear traditional clothing of red shirts with vertical stripes, pants with a small woolen blanket wrapped around their hips called a rodillera. The women also looked very traditional wearing similar color combinations with slightly different variations in the pattern and design as well as their huipiles, which are blouses that they weave on back-strap looms as they have for hundreds of years.

    Coffee

    Just down the hill from the main church, I noticed a woman sorting through what appeared to be coffee beans drying in the sun. In addition to selling their local handicrafts to tourists, many of the locals make a living through agriculture and since this is Guatemala, coffee is the most important crop.
