Antigua | The Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 1-3

ANTIGUA

Board a flight to Guatemala City, the capital of Guatemala

Note: There are no direct flights between the UK and Guatemala. There are flights via Madrid with Iberia, but the most common way to get there when combining with Belize is to fly via the US. There are flights with British Airways/American Airlines via Miami and other cities in the US.

After landing in Guatemala City, you will be driven 45 minutes to your hotel in the colonial gem of Antigua.

The former capital of the Kingdom of Guatemala, Antigua was largely destroyed by an earthquake in the 1700s but over the past few centuries has been superbly restored and is now a designated World Heritage Site. Strolling around its cobblestone streets past vibrant markets, ruined convents and art galleries is a great way to soak up the city’s alluring charm.

A walking tour will show you the Antigua Cathedral, the Merced Monastery and San Francisco Monastery, but those more active may want to go mountain biking or even climb a volcano in a 4×4. Your stay includes a private candle-lit dinner at La Cupula, Panza Verde – a small intimate room with a beautiful vaulted ceiling.

Stay: Three nights at Hotel San Rafael – Bed & breakfast

Indian villages surround the lake shore, each village with its own costume and textile design and specialising in different crafts. The following day you will have chance to visit the different villages and see the textiles and handicrafts which are made in the area.
