Welcome to Tzununá
Tzununá, located 2km east of San Marcos by a paved road has seen a bit of a gringo incursion in recent years. But this Kaqchiquel village ('Hummingbird of the Water') still retains a strong indigenous character and a lush natural beauty with year-round rivers springing from forested mountain slopes. Women in scarlet huipiles tread the paths between traditionally managed groves of coffee, avocados, bananas and jocote. Whereas foreign travelers head for San Pedro to party or San Marcos to meditate, many who come here are into sustainable agriculture, which they can study at Atitlán Organics.
