The Xunantunich Craft Market is a small outdoor artisan market of about twenty vendors who bring the market to life with eye-catching displays of hand-crafted items and souvenirs made mostly from natural materials like wood, seashells, and jippi-jappa- a plant similar to a palm that grows in the rainforest and is used in Mayan basket weaving.
