Area around Santa Maria Nebaj

Mountains north of Sacapulas - Guatemala

Santa Maria de Nebaj is a municipality in the Quiché region. The region is also known as the Ixil Triangle for its people. Personally, I don't think that any towns or villages are particularly pretty. Once more, the beauty of the area is about the mountain landscapes, the traditional clothes worn by women, and the people friendliness.

The people that I met were very friendly, and sometimes curious about my reason to come in their region. They are always surprised to learn that I drove the motorbike all the way from Canada.

When I saw this cemetery, I thought that I would rather live there than in the town itself, it's more pretty. For sure, they are some inconveniences.
