Visiting Antigua in Guatemala was as exciting as going on the moon for me! A far away small hilly town in Central America, which wasn't even a part of my bucket list for a long time. Thanks to my friends I made the plans to visit this place, and then I thought - YOU need to know about this place too!
Antigua is a small, quaint town in Guatemala. It took me 35 hours to reach there from Mumbai. And by the end of the journey I was literally dead! Because there are no direct flights to Guatemala - I took Mumbai - Dubai - Dallas - Guatemala City.
After landing I took a cab ride to Antigua, which was around 2 hours.
How many days:
Ideally 4 days are more than enough for a trip to Guatemala. We did not cover Guatemala city as we had to cover other countries ahead in Central America.
What To Explore:
1. La Antigua
3. Lake Atitlan
4. Pacaya Volcano
Some of the breathtaking natural landscapes include the Almolonga Valley and Pancho y Valley, which is the site of Agua Volcano, Fuego, Florence, the Guacalate River, the historic route of the Laguna de Dueñas, El Cerro de la Cruz, and Spa San Lorenzo el Cubo.
