What should/shouldn’t I wear?

It is best to bring layers, so you can be comfortable during the day and warm at night.

April to November is the rainy season with rain most afternoons. The high temperature reaches about 65 degrees Fahrenheit, and there are few cold and rainy days. Bring fast drying pants. Jeans don’t dry during rainy season and are difficult to hand wash. A poncho and/or umbrella are essential.

The rest of the year, the temperature gets up to around 75 degrees during the day, and it is cool at night.

Note: The Tz’tujil people in the area are very conservative, so it is important to respect local standards. Please do not bring old military-style and camouflage clothing as this type of dress can mentally trigger the tragedies that the community experienced during the civil war.
