Coban



        Coban is the capital of the Departmento de Alta Verapaz.  La Fiesta Nacional Indigena de Guatemala is held there every year during the last week in August.  Unfortunately I arrived there too late to see it.  The municipio fiesta for Coban, which has its peak day on August 4 is what is featured here.
