ANTIGUA GUATEMALA: A tour around the city

Antigua Guatemala was a last-minute addition to our time in Guatemala. We are SO glad to have made the detour - especially during the week before holy week. The city was full of processions, sawdust carpets, and celebrations.

We had a charming Airbnb in the heart of all the action. Just down the street from El Cerro de la Cruz, three blocks from Parque Central and we were surrounded by many stunning ruins and historical buildings, including the Antigua Guatemala Cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Joseph d' Antigua Guatemala).

In this video, we're walking about the city of Antigua.

“Let’s go” has pretty much been our life’s motto since we met nearly 25 years ago. We met in New York, moved to San Diego together, and married in Lake Tahoe – all within five months. When you know, you know – you know what we mean?

Now, after raising two adventure-seeking boys, we are ready to get out and explore some more. Our children have begun their lives and now it’s time to begin the second-half of ours.

We wanted a challenge and something fun, so we are starting an adventure of a lifetime. We’re calling it #60×60. Our plan is to travel to 60 countries by the time Kim turns 60 (that’s in 6 years by the way).

Travel Guide to Antigua/Guatemala

In this Guatemala and Antigua travel video guide, I head down to Guatemala and explore scenic Antigua, hike Volcano Pacaya, take a road trip to Lake Atitlan (and ride a horse along its banks), then head north to Tikal, home to the capital of the once mighty Mayan Empire, where I climb the many temples that have been discovered at the site.

BLOG POST:

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!

Solo Female Travel - Antigua, Guatemala

My first time in Guatemala was so awesome! I visited Antigua and spent the last few days of 2016 exploring this laid-back, beautiful, colourful cobble-stoned town that is surrounded by volcanoes. I rang in the New Year 2017 in Antigua and climbed Pacaya volcano for a challenging hike up and back down. While walking the streets there I knew I wanted to go back one day and explore Guatemala even further. I found the place very relaxing and was able to unwind with other travelers.

This solo trip to Mexico City and Guatemala was unforgettable and I encourage you to get out there, solo or not, and travel this incredible world. Thank you for watching and make sure to subscribe to watch my future travel adventures!

Travel Guatemala | SOLO FEMALE TRAVELER | Ep. 40 | Antigua

Backpacked from San Pedro Lake Atítlan back to the traveler backpacker mecca Antigua, Guatemala. It felt good to be back in this beautiful Guatemalan colonial town! I was trying to come up with a travel plan for the upcoming days before traveling into El Salvador with a shuttle from Antigua. Most people skip El Salvador but I definitely wanted to see El Salvador's beaches, lakes, mountains, volcanoes and its natural beauty. Although I was a girl traveling alone, I didn't feel scared but more like excited to see a new country!

Backpacking Guatemala | Central America Travel | (Part 1 of 2) HD 1080p

Guatemala offers an incredible experience for any type of traveller. We flew into the country and began an adventure of a lifetime...

** During the trip my camera settings went all funky, which I noticed after I filmed. I am aware that some of the video footage may be over exposed, and some of the audio clips appear to sound loud, distorted, and possibly echoed. I'm fully aware of the quality of these video/audio clips, so please don't rip on me. I still wanted to share

We flew into Guatemala city and drove straight to Antigua. Antigua will most likely be the place you will want to start your journey, as it is the go to location for most day trips to the surrounding mountain hiking.

We planned out where exactly we wanted to go throughout the country during our stay. The first half of our trip began with a two day hike, to view a active volcano called Acatenango. We spent one day going up, and one day coming down. The view from the top was incredible.

After we completed the hike, we made our way to Lake Atitlan, where we spend a few days relaxing and planning our second half of our trip.

What to Do in Guatemala - Lake Atitlan and Antigua 2018 🇬🇹

Earlier in the year, Amy and I visited one of the most beautiful countries of the world, Guatemala. To be honest, I didn’t know much about the country before my research. However, I am so grateful that I was able to experience it first hand. On our trip, we went to two locations - Antigua and Lake Atitlan.

Antigua is an old colonial town that has a really unique blend of Central American and European culture. The city is paved with cobbled stone and is filled with bright colorful buildings. Antigua is very walking friendly is known for its restaurant and cafes. There are abundant hospitality options, but we really enjoyed staying at the AirBnB Calle “Casa Girasol” and eating at Los Tres Tiempos restaurant. The city is known for its pictureqsue landmarks- Santa Catalina Arch, Central Park Plaza, Central Market - and they are all really close to each other. If you want to see a gorgeous view of the city, the hike up to Hill of the Cross is absolutely worth it. You can definitely walk there from the city, but we recommend taking a tuk-tuk.

Lake Atitlan is a massive body of water with breathtaking views of multiple volcanoes. There are really diverse communities scattered around the Lake. Some of the villages range from a yoga center for hippies to a local fishing village known for ceramics. Its definitely worth to visit all (or most) of them. However, we de-prioritized going to the touristy towns like Panjachel. Public transportation is fairly easy to navigate. Every half hour, there will be public boats or lanchas that will take you around the lake. We stayed at one of the most beautiful AirBnbs, the Lakefront B&B owned by a woman named Dita. It was truly a magical experience. Everything from the modern room aesthetic, private access to the lake, and curated breakfast/dinner selection made the stay remarkable.

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:

Guatemala City is big, noisy, and chaotic. I think a lot of tourists skip the capital and go straight to other more tourist-friendly locations such as Antigua or Lake Atitlan.

But I believe that every big city has beauty waiting to be found, so that's what I go looking for in Guatemala's capital — Guatemala City.
