Community Name & History
Chipila, in Kaqchik a Mayan language, means "wash station by the road." In the past when homes did not have individual water taps, women would go to a local wash station in this area to wash their clothing. Thus, that is what the community came to be called.
Life & Culture
This area is known for their production of coffee. Some vegetables are also grown in the area. Women in the community weave clothing and make costumes typically worn for certain celebrations.
The community has very positive leaders and they work hard for the benefit of the community.
