Practical Information

About Antigua

Antigua Guatemala was the colonial capital of the Spanish Captaincy General. A gem of colonial architecture, Antigua’s features have been preserved as though time were frozen.  Because of its historical and cultural value, UNESCO declared Antigua as a World Heritage site in 1979. 

Antigua offers several attractions including museums, ruins of colonial-era churches and convents, plus a variety of bars and restaurants that cater to any taste and budget. The Handicraft Market of Antigua Guatemala offers a wide selection of products and handicrafts. 

As a small country with variations in topography and several microclimates, Guatemala offers attractive sites and activities for different tastes: from a tranquil getaway in beautiful Lake Atitlán (considered one of the most beautiful by famous novelist Aldous Huxley), to exploring the Mayan ruins in the middle of a tropical rainforest, to hiking one of the more than thirty volcanoes. Tours are available around Guatemala and information on different destinations is available at www.visitguatemala.com.
