About
The market of Chichicastenango is home to what is undoubtedly the most colorful native market in North and Central America, and perhaps in the whole Americas. Lake Atitlan is considered one of the most beautiful in the world by many, including the famous novelist Aldous Huxley. Tours only operate on Thursdays or Sundays because those are market days.

Beautiful Lake and Amazing people
Jan 2020
We stayed at Barcelo hotel in Guatemala City. We took hotel taxi and did the Chichicastenango market and Lake Atitlan in one day. It is a long drive but there is plenty to watch and see on the way.
We loved the people, colors, hand made artifacts and food in the market. We stopped at Santo Tomas Church in the market.
We then drove down to Solola, saw local men in wonderful costumes on the way. We took a trip over lake Atitlan with public boat. Lake Atitlan surrounded by mountains and volcanoes has seen generations of mayans and local tribes live, grow and evolve, like a mother providing to her children.
As a bonus our driver Mario took us to Iximché ruins on the way back from the lake. We left around 6:45 and we were back by 7pm in our hotel.
We absolutely enjoyed the trip, these places show soul of Guatemala, do not miss them.
Highly recommend our driver Mario Xicará - 502 5853 3071, taxi # 796 in Zone 9 of Guatemala City (marioxicará2018@gmail.com). He is reliable and trustworthy.

Chichicastenango and Lake Atitlan by Maya World Tours
Dec 2019 • Friends
I booked my tour with TripAdvisor for Chichi and Lake Atitlan from Antigua. We confirmed our pick up date, time and location with Lili from Maya World Tours, the local provider, by text and a phone call: Sunday, Dec 29 at 7:30 am at Soleil Hotel in Antigua. Return time was supposed to be around 7-7:30 pm. I was on the phone with Lili. the rep for Maya World Tours, several times starting at 8 am the day of our tour because no one had showed up or even called to tell us anything. Lili apologized and kept telling us that she was trying to find a car and a guide in Antigua. At 9:05 am a Maya World tour rep showed up with a car and a guide. As we boarded the car we noticed the car had a flat tire. The driver left to fix the flat and came back to pick us up 45 minutes later. It was 9:50 am when we finally left Antigua. Mind you, it takes 3 hrs to get to the first destination and then 1 hour to get to the lake and then 2.5 hrs to return to Antigua. That’s a total of 6.5 hrs driving during the day. Because of our late departure we had bad traffic that we should not have had if we had left earlier. We got to Chichi very late and had no time to get lunch. We rushed to the lake but didn’t get there until close to 3:30 pm. We decided to have lunch because we had not had time to do so in Chichi. By 4:30 pm we finally saw the beautiful lake Atitlan. We rented a boat to take us around to visit a small indigenous village. The people in all these places were welcoming and wonderful. We had to leave early because the water on the lake gets rough as it gets windy in the late afternoon. Two amazing places to visit and a day half-ruined by the lack of professional services of Maya World Tour. Surprisingly, none of the people we interacted with offered a voucher for another tour or anything to mitigate for the bad experience we were having. Either the company doesn’t care about the quality of their customer services or company representatives are not empowered and trained to recover from a situation like the one we faced. Would not recommend using any services by Maya World Tours in Guatemala.
