Antigua, Guatemala - the best place in Guatemala


Guatemala is an incredibly underrated country, often passed over for Belize, Costa Rica, and Mexico. But. There is an immense amount of culture and beauty within Guatemala. Nowhere is this more evident than in Antigua.

Like a town lost in time on a cloud, Antigua feels aloof to the modern age. Impeccably charming, safe, and enticing, every corner brings an excitement with it. Curious buildings and hallowed out ruins and preserved artifacts of colonial brilliance conspire to create an unreal collection of a place in time. It feels like the past effortlessly disregarding the present. It looks like something out of a remembered dream, just passing by as you pass through.

 A well kept church welcomes visitors 

 A volcano looms beyond the colony 

 A main drag at night 

 The clock tower

 A hill just out of town, overlooking Antigua

 A little better - Santa Rosa 

 A church that is open to the elements 

 Recently, I spoke with someone who had a wedding here in this church

 A quaint corner like something out of a distant dream

A square 

 Just about as typical as it gets 

 A great city to explore by bike 

 Volcano in the background 

 A public washing area

 Wow, I took a lot of pictures of this

 Something about that tree

 Ladies washing 


 A store - handwritten sign

 A busy street 

 Some of the past is left to pass

 A shop 

 Enticing balconies 

 A square at night 

 Kristin and I 

 Nachos??? I have no idea

I don't know what Ed is doing here 

 A cross

 A great drawing 

 Just some realism
 
 SOme local soups and dishes 

 Gorgeous arch 

 A horse 

 The jacuzzi at our hotel 

 The front of our incredible hotel 

 cocoa Beans 

 Struttin

 Chocolate we made 

 God I was tired that day 

 Arches on the square 

 A closed door is a curious thing

  1. My family and i spent 4 nights in a casita with mt rushmore tours and loved the hotel. Staff was nice and polite, rooms were clean and the grounds and views are amazing. We couldn't stop taking pictures. We had several meals at the hotel (breakfast and dinner) and all were tasty. Loved that the area was secure, but large, so our kids could enjoy the grounds while we waited on meals or got ready in the morning. Nice paths, grassy areas and play ground too. Pool was pretty, but chilly. The casita was definitely worth the extra money for us to have two bedrooms and a living room. I would recommend the casita for families.

An operation like that must require a large support staff of muggles. Hagrid represents replica wathces this army of janitors, secretaries and non-wizards in the books, but getting a job amongst the magic and intrigue of the school louis vuitton replica must be pretty sweet. They probably even have a flying carpool program.
