Sights in The Highlands – Lago De Atitlán
- Sort by:
Museo Tz'unun Ya' is an excellent, modern museum focusing in part on culture and folklore and in part on the fascinating geology of the region. Displays are semi-interactive and a free guided tour (in Spanish only at the time of writing) is included in the admission price.
Museo Maya Tzutujil is the more humble of the two museums, but it does have some good displays on the various trajes (traditional costumes) used by people around the lake, some great old photographs and a good lending library/bookstore. Once a month or so, a Maya priest comes to perform ceremonies here, and the public is welcome to attend - ask when the next one is.
