Caption:

There are few villages where men have preserved the custom of traditional dress. San Rafael Petzal is one. Men from the village are proud and put their cultural identity on display wherever they go. The shirts resemble those of their neighbors in Todos Santos, but the entire ensemble is distinguished by a black shawl and a different band around the hat.
