Amatitlan Fair Dec 16, 2012
We were just hanging out in the old city of Antigua Guatemala when I saw piece of paper that advertised fair in the city of Amatitlan. That place is nested next to the lake, close to the Guatemala city and it is largest duty-free zone in Guatemala. Once a year they have large fair with show of many rides, cowboy parades and good old fair food. Not having any plans, we got to the first taxi that could fit five Europeans and after negotiations, took off towards the place. Driver was fast and good, and promised that he is going to wait for us while we have our fun on the fair. Highlights were horse parade with almost everyone carrying some kind of pistol, electric carts, foosball tables and good food (not to forget cheep beer). Only thing that we missed was corida, but we did not know about it, and saw it while exiting the town…
