Semana Santa in Guatemala, the Holy Week leading up to Easter, is unarguably one of Central America’s most well-known celebrations. The grand processions on top of all of the beautiful flower and sawdust carpets during this time of the year are one of the country’s trademarks. It’s no wonder tens of thousands of people from across the globe flock to La Antigua Guatemala and Zone 1 of Guatemala City to watch the lavish floats being carried through their historic streets. However, that’s not all there is to Semana Santa in Guatemala. Each community has its own lesser-known but equally beautiful traditions, so we went looking for some of them. After all, that’s what Comvite’s all about.
