Requeson is very similar to Ricotta. In the supermarkets you can but it in a plastic container like you would ricotta. If you go to a cremeria (a cheese and cream store) you might find it in small bags, but if you go to the market it comes as the picture shows wrapped in a banana leaf! (very organic and environmentally friendly).
This market is the market in San Lucas Sacatepequez on the way to Antigua from Guatemala City.
Delicious, we used to have a lady come to the house, in a basquet she would carry on top of her head, there was cream, queso de capaz and some times requeson which was one of my favorites.We used to call her la cremera.
