Welcome to Acul


These days Acul's main activities are ranching, weaving and loom building.

Just outside Acul is a pair of farms devoted to cheese making. They were started by two immigrant brothers, the Azzaris, cheese makers in their native Italian Alps who moved to Guatemala in the 1930s, perhaps choosing the Acul valley because of its alpine appearance. Older brother José gained renown as a prize wrestler before being killed in the ring.
