overhead in the market; folk-paiting in Santiago Atitlán
With its colorful landscapes and traditional clothing, it's no surprise that Guatemala's folk-paintings are so vibrant.
A wonderful place to see and purchase these works of art is in Santiago Atitlán, on the southern shore of Lake Atitlán. Between two volcanoes, this is a Maya town, home to the Tz'utujil people. Meet the artists; see where they live...
You can get here by boat from Panajachel, and a road links it to San Lucas Tolimán as well.
