Aguacatán: See Aguacateco

"Aguacatan" is an alternate name for Aguacateco, an indigenous Mayan language of Guatemala. Aguacatán is the name of the region of Guatemala where these people live, and has become the de facto name of the tribe and their language as well, either in the noun form (Aguacatán) or the adjective form (Aguacateco.)
