Create your trip
The Spanish left their mark on Latin America in many ways, but one of their finest legacies is the colonial gem of Antigua. Uncover the city's soul by exploring the streets, churches and plazas or enjoying it's fine array of bars and restaurants. The old stucco walls lining the cobbled lanes give the town a tangible sense of history and importance, and have earnt Antigua the label of ‘finest Spanish colonial city is all of Latin America’ in some accounts. As a base for discovering some of the most interesting sights in the nation, Antigua should not be overlooked. It may have wholeheartedly surrendered to tourism and language schools for its sustenance, but it is correspondingly well organised and easy to like. If you are planning to spend time travelling around the immediate environs, either to one of the three volcanoes surrounding the town or through the fertile valleys in between, Antigua is easily the best place to return to at the end of the day. It is also well placed for striking out to lake Atitlán, Guatemala City and Chichicastenango.
