Antigua — 4 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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Convento Santa Clara and Museo Casa del Tejido Antiguo. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Centro Cultural La Azotea and Jade Maya - The Original Jade factory and Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Antigua side-trips: Guatemala City (Catedral Metropolitana, Plaza Fontabella, &more). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Caoba Farms, delve into the distant past at Convento de las Capuchinas, don't miss a visit to San Jose El Viejo, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia de La Merced.

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.
