Wood Carving in the Peten Region:
The abundance of exotic hardwood in Guatemala's Peten region has given rise to a vibrant wood carving industry that dates back to the days of the Mayan empire. Because of the nature of the hardwood — particularly Caribbean walnut and the exotic ziricote — with its distinct stripes and patches, each item is totally unique and makes for a great souvenir from your Guatemala trip!
