Are the markets in Antigua active during Holy Week from Good Friday to Easter Sunday?
Semana santa in Antigua is the most highest tourist season of the year. Don't worry there will be markets open!
And Good friday is the most important day in Guatemala! The Thursday is nice to see the carpets being made. Saturday and Sunday are less important. Be aware Semana Santa in Antigua is very, very busy. It almost feels like show because of the tourists.
