Pausing from selling to the tourists these women laugh as they watch the Gringos go by.  The outfit worn by an indigenous Guatemalan woman is a statement of her cultural and personal identity. For those in the know a woman's dress identifies exactly which village she comes from. . . . #antigua #visitguatemala #guatemala #indigenousdress #mayanwomen #weaving #mayandress #lifeofadventure #natgeovisual #iconicbuilding #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #mylpguide #lpfanphoto #natgeo #Travel…

Guatemala isn't renowned for its cuisine but we found a few gems like this wood-fired chicken (hecho con leña) at El Rincon Tipico. This guy spends hours rotating the butterflied chicken. The meat juices run on to the roasting potatoes below.

Who could do with a worry doll? We saw tiny worry dolls all over Antigua and took the chance to have a go at making some ourselves. Traditionally people tell their worry dolls their sorrows fears and worries then hide them under their pillow. The following morning all stresses are said to have been taken away by the worry doll. . . . #antigua #visitguatemala #guatemala #worrydolls #artsandcrafts #lifeofadventure #getcreative #becreative ##guardiantravelsnaps #mylpguide #lpfanphoto…

Probably the best fish tacos we've ever eaten were at Pepe's Fish Tacos on Playa Zicatela. The coconut shrimp was great but the fried fish was even better. They come with salad and a fantastic pineapple salsa. Liberally spoon over your favourite sauce (ours was a smoky chipotle) and enjoy whilst watching the waves crash on to the shore. . . . #playazicatela #fishtacos #mexicanfishtaco #pepesfishtacos #mexicanstreetfood #mexico #forksinthepath #yougottaeatthis #foodie #instafood #food…

Arroz con Leche y Garbanzo. This combination of rice pudding with chickpeas may sound a bit odd for pud but it the nuttiness of chickpeas works really well. We found this traditional dulce on a street food cart on the corner of Alcalá and Matamoros streets in Oaxaca. . . . #oaxaca #mexicandessert  #mexicanstreetfood #mexico #forksinthepath #yougottaeatthis #foodie#foodgawker #instafood #food #foodlove #foodies #foodpics #foodlover #fooddiary #foodgram #foodspotting #foodforfoodies #foodism…

We visited Monte Alban on a hot and dusty day. With incredible 360-degree views over the valleys and distant mountains it was the ideal location for a city from which the ancient Zapotecs could over them rule from. . . . . #visitmexico #mexicolove #montealban #zapotecruins #oaxaca #bbctravel #natgeotravel #mylpguide #lpfanphoto #natgeopro #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #Travel #TravelBlogger #TravelPhotography #TravelDiary #TravelLife #TravelPics #TravelCouple #travelisthenewclub…

We visited the alebrijes workshop of Jacob and Maria Angeles. This couple have created a community that generates jobs for more than 100 people from the local area. Alebrijes are carved and painted animal figurines made from copal wood ranging in price from a few $ to hundreds of thousands depending on the level of artistry and size. We learnt how they made natural paints and watched as they carved and painted these exquisite pieces of folk art. . . . #alebrijes #mexicanfolkart #mexicanart…

The air was full of anticipation. Women in colourful traditional dresses with their long dark hair decorated with vibrant ribbons were standing by the church with baskets full of flowers waiting for something. Men holding brass instruments stood idly by. Two people climbed in to giant papier mache puppets dressed as a bride and groom. The church doors opened and out came the wedding party. It was the moment everyone had been waiting for. Firecrackers blasted the air. The music started the…

When in Oaxaca drink tejate! This delicious indigenous drink  is made with ground corn cacao the seeds of the mamey and flor de cacao (or Rosita de cacao). Ladies mix the ground ingredients to a paste in a clay pot and gradually add water. A froth appears on top and the thicker it is the better the tejate is supposed to be. Its traditionally drunk from a colourful handpainted jicara shell and tastes mildly chocolatey and earthy. . . . #oaxaca #tejate #mexicandrink #cacao #mexico…

First meal in the food heaven that is Oaxaca wasn't even Mexican! Everyone raves about @boulencpan  bread. We're still salivating at the thought of their sandwiches. Our favourites were the Champiñones a focacia bread filled with mushrooms sauteed onions with oregano spinach chipotle dressing local cheese and tomato and the Vegetariana a ciabatta filled with marinated mushrooms avocado quesillo chipotle dressing and mustard. There was a delicious fiery chilli and peanut oil on the table…
