About the Tour

A representative of Tours Atitlan will meet you at your hotel lobby, from there we will drive in the back of a pick-up truck to the local market.

Solola- The main and most important town on the Lake Atitlan area, known for having one of Central America’s finest traditional local markets. A mesmeric display of colors and commerce called “a walking museum of fancy dress” by Aldous Huxley. Place visited every Tuesday and Friday by mainly Kakchiquel Mayan people from different villages on the northern side of the lake as well as from the near highlands. A perfect place for people-watching and photographs, this is a non-souvenir & non-touristy market.
After visiting the market you will also visit the Sacred Nimajay Cave located halfway back to Panajachel. This cave is used by locals to do their sacred ceremonies and prayers to the mayan gods. After we visit this place we will drive back to your hotel or stop for lunch in Panajachel.
