What Kinds of Gifts and Souvenirs Can I Find in Guatemala?

A variety of handicrafts and souvenirs can be found in Guatemala. Some of the best can be found at local markets, like those in Santiago Atitlán, Chichicastenango and Todos Santos Cuchumatán. Here you'll find a range of souvenirs, including jade jewelry, pottery, fabrics, wooden masks, and textiles. Guatemala is particularly well known for its weavings and fabrics.

In more touristy places, like Panajachel and Lívingston, you'll find stalls along the streets selling necklaces, bracelets, t-shirts and more.

In most markets it's acceptable (and even encouraged) to bargain, so don't be afraid to ask for the vendor's best price.
