The gigantic kites Fecha: 01 de November de 2017 Lugar: Sacatepéquez
  • In this city, near the capital, on the day of the Saints or the Dead, they make gigantic and very colourful kites. These kites carry messages for the dead on their tails and you can enjoy the spectacle as the wind carries them skyward. The celebration ends with a tasting of cold meat dishes, a typical plate for this day.

    21st October to 1st November
    Todos Santos Cuchumatanes

     

    • The first of November is one of the most important days in the country, since it is the day to remember deceased loved ones. In the village of  Todos Santos Cuchumanes they celebrate that day in a very peculiar manner, since it is a tradition for the men of the village to mount on horseback, and run back and forth on a course of 200 m. Each round, they dismount, drink a beer and end the event when they are completely drunk!
