Lake Amatitlan also has a huge outdoor Mercado, which has everything from local fruits and vegetables, hand made - typical Guatemalan items, clothing, novelty items, chocolates and sweets. Or, if you are in the mood for a relaxing day at the spa, the famous Santa Terrisita Spa offers hot springs, massages, pools with heated water, facials and much more!
