Cemetery
See the unusual, brightly painted mausoleums and above-ground crypts at Chichi Cemetery. Bring a camera to capture the striking imagery as you walk among rows and rows of graves in vibrant hues. You may even catch a Mayan shamanic ritual taking place in worship of ancestors. Exercise caution at the site, as attacks on tourists have been reported at the cemetery; play it safe by visiting with a group or tour guide. Put Chichi Cemetery into our Chichicastenango vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
