Guatemala: Shopping Holiday
Land of Eternal Spring
Guatemala offers limited opportunities for shopping, except perhaps for people who have a special interest in ethnic clothing and textiles and Mayan handicrafts. There is very limited scope in Guatemala for buying the kinds of goods that are common in UK shops, although if you do find something you want, it will be a lot cheaper there. If you are interested in handicrafts and you would enjoy shopping in Guatemala's vibrant and colourful street markets, then this is the place for you!
Another advantage of shopping in Guatemala is that the relatively low prices there will mean that you will never be short of a bargain provided you are prepared to negotiate the price. Some of Guatemala's best craft markets are in Antigua (Guatemala), Guatemala City and Chichicastenango. Guatemala has distinctive, but limited, opportunities for a shopping holiday.
