BLOG POST:

Day started off with a couple mishaps. Entered a church in the center of Antigua, on the only day where visitors were not allowed. Did not notice that until I left the cathedral. Then tried to enter another old church and even though this videos is about the things to do in Antigua Guatemala, this sign showed all the things you cannot do in a church in Antigua Guatemala! No short, no cell, no talking to other people, no this, no that. A bit excessive!

Either way, I entered the ruins of San Francisco on the outskirts of Antigua Guatemala near my hostel and they were stunning. I love history, and I love well kept ancient history with information to explain what has happened rather than just leaving it up to interpretation and the grounds here were beautiful and had a little museum on the premises for you to go in and see artefacts and other things from this era.

There are a lot of things to do in Antigua Guatemala, this being one of them because there are many ruins in the area. Probably 5 to 7 just in the center of Antigua alone. If you are looking for other things to do in Antigua Guatemala, check the video links below as one is the local market on the west end of Antigua and the other link is a video of the short walk to the beautiful viewpoint overlooking all of Antigua Guatemala.

5 Things NOT To Do in Guatemala

Get more Tips here!
With its lush landscapes, Mayan ruins, and towering volcanoes, there aren't too many things not to love about Guatemala. But like most countries, there are some Things NOT To Do in Guatemala.

1. Don't Visit Guatemala City
According to the U.S. Department of State's travel notice, the city is rife with violent crimes against U.S. citizens and foreign travelers. The capital was once considered safe, but those days are long gone.

2. Don't Wear Flip Flops to the Mayan Ruins
Unless you want to lose your footing and sprain an ankle, leave the flip flops in your suitcase. The ancient Mayan Ruins are over a thousand years old, staircases may be unstable, and grassy areas uneven. So watch your step!

3. Don't Have Your Heart Set on Delicious Coffee
Guatemala may be known for producing some of the best brews you'll ever taste. Sadly, most of the coffee is exported, which means you won't be sipping a cup of Guatemalan joe during your stay.

4. Don't Travel at Night
It's a necessary precaution when traveling, especially in Guatemala. When night falls, the chances of becoming a victim of a crime are far greater.

5. Don't Take Photos of the Locals Without Permission
There are unsubstantiated rumors in Mayan communities that foreigners have the intent to steal their children and sell them abroad. A Japanese tourist was tragically killed by an angry mob of 500 villagers after he took pictures of indigenous women and children in a market.

Where do you want to know what NOT to do in next?

BLOG POST:

I have mentioned before that something I love to do when I arrive in a new town, is find a viewpoint. It is a great way to get a lay of the land and see your new place from above. Antigua, Guatemala was no different. When I arrived in Antigua, I asked the lady at my hostel where a place to get a good view of Antigua Guatemala was. Firstly, the rooftop at Villas Esthella is a great place to stay, with a rooftop patio and terrific 360 view of Antigua and the surrounding Guatemala landscape and from there, she was able to point out a walk up to a lookout over Antigua and a view of the two most famous volcanoes in Guatemala.

As you walk the beautiful cobble stone streets of Antigua, you can see the hill and simply walk towards it to find the base of the trail. From there, you follow the steps up and enter a terrific smelling forest of fresh air and a deep pine smell. Apparently it is dangerous to walk this trail at night so avoid this Antigua Guatemala lookout once the sun has set. When you arrive at the top ...

Walking Antigua, Guatemala:
Antigua, Guatemala Market:

...there is a beautiful cross standing above all of Antigua and you see the gorgeous landscape of Guatemalas surrounding areas around Antigua. Directly in front lies the main volcano, one of many in Guatemala, that overlooks the Antigua streets.

A short little walk that guys you good orientation of Antigua and the scope and beauty of this area of Guatemala.

Will be enjoying a few more days of Antigua Guatemala and then off south!

First day in Antigua consisted of combing the streets and dragging my jaw. What a gorgeous place Antigua is. What a gorgeous place Guatemala is! I set out to find the local market, here in Antigua. As I walked down the street ...

If you have not seen the first day in Antigua, Guatemala, click the video link below.

Arrival in Antigua:

... I came across many little shops and many stores that are built into the old buildings but as most people, I like to view everything that is on offer, and look for something very unique. I figured the Antigua Market would be the best place for that.

Basically any road in Antigua, walking away from the entrance into down, and down the slight slope, you will end up at one of the main streets that meets perpendicular with the one you are on. In front of you will be more little stands and places to buy souvenirs, and down those roads lead you to the market.

I arrived at the Antigua Market at the main entrance to the west. The first thing you pass by is the big food court, as markets and Antigua Market being no different, are a great place to grab a cheap, authentic meal.

Leaving the food court you enter the toiletry and deodorant section. Then into the spray paint section. Spices section. Shoe section! Everything! The Antigua Market literally has everything. Even seafood! This far from the coast, up in the mountains, hidden in this deep dark market, is not the first place I would want to buy seafood in Guatemala.

I push on. Candles. Chickens. Nuts. Power tools. The works! Finally, after walking what seemed like forever I followed the natural light and left Antigua's Never Ending Market!

A lot of things to do in Antigua, and I would suggest taking a morning, or afternoon as one of your things to do, and checking out the Antigua Market. Good fun, cheap, and you will find whatever you need!

7 Things to do in Antigua & One Thing NOT to do!

We had a fantastic time recently on the Caribbean island of Antigua and discovered loads of great things to do there.

Set in aquamarine seas this corner of the Caribbean is more than just a fly and flop destination. You can have plenty of adventures, natural encounters and eat your way through lots of great tasting food. Oh and don't forget the omnipresent rum punches.

For a relatively small island it's packed with attractions and there was never a dull moment.

Here are 7 of the best things to do in Antigua and we've written more about them here Our favourite Antigua attractions include;
• Learning to cook with rum at Nicole's Table. Yes, at Nicole’s home we cooked with rum, drank rum and learnt the history of rum, and managed to stay sober – just.
• We whizzed a speedboat out on a seven-mile journey across the Caribbean sea with Antigua Reef Riders. Screaming with laughter and joy as our speedboat bounced across the waves.
• Partied the night away, dancing to the music of steel bands at Antigua’s most beautiful viewing point - Shirley Heights. Feasting on the best barbecue food, drinking even more rum and looking down on the divine English and Falmouth Harbours.
• We even learned to sing and performed a whole concert as part of the Caribbean Choir. You could too at Elite Island Resorts, where a top British vocal coach, Mike King, worked a minor miracle to turn us into half-decent singers – he might disagree. We have another video on this coming soon.

List of Things to do in Flores Guatemala | Guatemala Travel Tips

Number 3 Thing To Do in Flores Guatemala: Walk, Eat Sunset. One of the best things to do in Flores Guatemala was to walk around the town, eat at many different places including my favourite home restaurant on the back side of the island of Flores and then watch the sunset.

Number 2 Thing To Do in Flores Guatemala: Get a boat, or do a boat tour, and enjoy Lake Peten. A huge lake, with Flores as just a little needle head. Much more of the lake to see than simply your view from the center of Flores, Guatemala.

AMAZING Guatemalan STREET FOOD + Antigua Walking Tour | Antigua, Guatemala

On my third day in Guatemala in partnership with the Real Intercontinental Guatemala we explored Antigua's main attractions and we ate some amazing Guatemalan street food!

We started our exploration of Antigua by walking through the historical center of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Antigua. We first saw La Carmen Convent ruins, then we went to La Perla to have a quick espresso and then we visited La Merced Church.

From there we made our way across the city and stopped at Santa Catalina Arch which is the icon of Antigua. It's a a 15 century arch built to help the nuns cross from the convent to a school. Next up we saw the Antigua Cathedral ruins. It was destroyed during an earthquake in the year 1773.

We then made a quick stop at La Casa del Ron and tried some amazing Zacapa rums. We tried Zacapa 23, Zacapa Negro and we tried a Colonial rum which is an artisan rum made by the Zacapa brand.

To end the night we headed to the public laundry square and there, there is a lady selling amazing Guatemalan street food. I tried four different things:
-Chuchitos
-Alot del Elote
-Rellenitos de Platano
-Tostada de Ensalada de Pollo

Each thing was amazing and I highly recommend visiting that lady when you head to Antigua. She gets there around 5:30pm.

Next time you head to Guatemala I recommend working with my friends at A La Carta Tours:

FUNDRAISING FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE VOLCAN DE FUEGO ERUPTION NEAR ANTIGUA IN JUNE OF 2018:

Antigua is a beautiful colonial town that is easily accessible from Guatemala City. We flew from Mexico City to Guatemala City, and from there it is a 1 hour drive to downtown Antigua.

This trip might surprise some of my Mexican viewers, as we have been making videos in Mexico for the past 6 months. But don't worry, after the Guatemala trip we will soon be back in Mexico for more travel adventures. Watch the video to find out more :)
