Antigua is a world heritage site, lying in the shadow of Volcano De Agua. Its colorful cobbled streets come to life especially during Holy Week, with processions passing under the Arch of Santa Catalina. The compact town is easy to explore on foot, with plenty for you to discover.
If you visit Guatemala City itself, you'll find several interesting museums, including the Ixchel Museum of traditional costumes, and the Popol Vuh Museum, which focuses on archaeology from the Mayan world.
Those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city should head to the scenic Naciones Unidas National Park; it s the perfect place to unwind after a day in Guatemala.
Flights into La Aurora International Airport (GUA) serve Guatemala City and the surrounding area. Many visitors choose to bypass Guatemala City and head to straight to the picturesque colonial city of Antigua, about one hour's drive away.
From La Aurora Airport, it's best to take a pre-arranged shuttle bus to Antigua. The local "chicken bus" transportation can be crowded, as can the Tuk-Tuk three wheeler taxis.
Zone 10 of the city is where you'll find the best restaurants, shopping and superior hotels; this is also the best area if you want to enjoy some nightlife during your stay.
