Antigua

— 2 nights
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.
Get out of town with these interesting Antigua side-trips: Guatemala City (Catedral Metropolitana & La Aurora Zoo). There's much more to do: make a trip to Cerro de la Cruz, pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de La Merced, get engrossed in the history at Casa Santo Domingo Museums, and stop by Nim Po't Centro de Textiles Tradicionales.

Land of Eternal Spring
Offering a chance to discover a rich history, remarkable landscapes, and a vibrant culture, a holiday in Guatemala remains a great choice for a wide range of travelers. The heart of the Maya civilization, Guatemala boasts stunning ancient ruins and traditional villages that blend with the Spanish heritage of the colonial-era and its stately cathedrals and town halls. While the cities boast splendid architecture and cultural heritage, they make up a small percentage of the mountainous Guatemalan landscape. Adventurous travelers and nature lovers will have plenty of things to do in Guatemala, from boating on the rushing rivers and scenic lakes, to exploring caves, picturesque beaches, and lush national parks.
