Kaqchikel will stretch your understanding of the diversity of human language. The Mayan languages, including Kaqchikel, have several unique features which most speakers of European languages have never encountered. It is spoken today by more than 500,000 speakers in dozens of municipalities throughout central Guatemala, mostly in the departments of Guatemala, Sacatepéquez, Chimaltenango, Sololá, Escuintla, and Suchitepéquez. Kaqchikel is the Mayan language most commonly encountered by travelers to Guatemala, since it is the language spoken in the most popular tourist destinations, such as Antigua and Panajachel.
