Chichi as the locals call it is famous for its handicraft markets. The big days are Thursday and Sunday and you can find anything and everything handmade. You need to get there early as it is always crowded. Be sure to bargain as they usually start at at least twice what they are willing to take. We had a lady start at 900q for a quilt that we ended up getting for 320q.We stayed in Chichi as well for the festival of San Tomas in December. It is eight days of celebration which involves dancing, fireworks, and music. Sometimes they have the flying men around the pole but we never got to see anything by the pole as the dancers and any schedule were very elusive. It really is hit and miss but a great time nonetheless. Their big market days are Thursday and Sunday.but every day during the festival was a market day!
We stayed at hotel Los Tuttos which is on the edge of town where you enter but you have to loop the block as half the street is one way; you can be like us and go that way anyway to save time and confusion. Simple clean rooms and easy access to the market area and not as noisy at night. You can find their writeup in the Lonely Planet but the phone numbers are old. Very safe.
