07:00 The Chichicastenango One Day Tour starts with a collective shuttle from Antigua to Chichicastenango. You arrive at Chichicastenango around nine in the morning, giving you around five hours, including your lunch time to visit all the market areas. Chichicastenango is attractive for the variety of crafts, huipiles, hamacs, wooden masks, lengths of embroidered cloth and garments that lay around the outer edges of the market in the most visible areas.
Besides the famous market, Masheños (citizens of Chichicastenango) are famous for their adherence to pre-Christian religious beliefs and ceremonies. You can readily see versions of these old rites in and around the church of Santo Tomás and the shrine of Pascual Abaj on the outskirts of town.
14:00 Departure time from Chichicastenango to Antigua.
