Visiting Antigua in Guatemala was as exciting as going on the moon for me! A far fetched town in Central America, ideally which could have been sitting in my bucket list for a long time, suddenly was coming to life!

About Antigua:

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!

How many days:

Ideally 4 days are more than enough for a trip to Guatemala. We did not cover the city as we had to cover other countries ahead. And we had seen quite a bit in Antigua!

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! But this place had so many surprises hidden inside. The hotel where we stayed was a heritage site, although I cannot forget the dark and scary corridors in the night, which reminded me nothing but of a horror movies. Visiting places like these, only make us feel how life would have been back in the days.

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.

Duration of Stay

Ideally 4 days are more than enough for a trip to Guatemala. We did not cover the city as we had to cover other countries ahead. And we had seen quite a bit in Antigua! We stayed at Hotel Casa Santo Domingo. It is located in the grounds of Santo Domingo Monastery, which originated back in 1538, when the first Dominicans arrived in Guatemala. Besides being a hotel, museum and a spa, this place also has a candle factory, a chocolate factory, beautiful landscaped gardens and an art gallery!

Central America is very beautiful but be careful and do not visit places which are not mostly visited by tourists. Travelling off the road is a great idea but sometimes one should be careful.
