You’ve Got Some Balls!

You've Got Some Balls

Guatemala is a football-playing country and thus it is obvious that balls are the favorite toy for young and mature kids . The most popular balls are the small striped sitting on the left against the plastic baskets. You can find them everywhere, from Guatemala City to Playa Grande Ixcán (the first the largest metropolis in Central America and the latter one of the most remote communities in Guatemala, because they are very cheap and kids can buy them in any convenience store or tienda as they are known here.

Through these balls you can also appreciate the fact that Guatemalans like a bright and vivid, in-your-face color palette for all aspects of life. You can browse the Color Palette category to see samples of how color permeates everything in the daily life around La Antigua Guatemala.

Have a ball of a weekend; my best wishes to you and your love ones!

  • A few months ago, I’ve been purchasing a ball right there, to play football with some children I met while volunteering… That’s surprising! I loved Antigua. Very beautiful photos, by the way.
