Photo Etiquette

We will be making our first trip to Antigua, Pana, and Chichi this fall. What is the local etiquette for photographing nature, building and people?

I'll take a shot at this. You should have no issues with pictures of nature or buildings. As for people, Mayans in particular can be touchy; many don't care to be considered tourist attractions. For broad shots -- pictures of the Chichi market from the cathedral steps -- you shouldn't have a problem. If you want to get close up, you should ask permission. Some will want you to pay a bit.

I'd also recommend a telephoto lens.
