The former capital of Guatemala and a World Heritage Site, Antigua retains its colonial charm and remains one of the most visited destinations in the country.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Nim Po't Centro de Textiles Tradicionales and Casa de Artes. Get some historical perspective at Iglesia de La Merced and Arco de Santa Catalina. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Antigua: Guatemala City (Paseo Cayala, Palacio Nacional, & more). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Casa Santo Domingo Museums, stop by La Casa del Algodon, contemplate the long history of Casa Popenoe, and contemplate the geological forces at Volcán Pacaya.
