The former capital of Guatemala and a World Heritage Site, Antigua retains its colonial charm and remains one of the most visited destinations in the country.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Arco de Santa Catalina and Convento de las Capuchinas. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Volcán Pacaya and Spas. Explore Antigua's surroundings by going to Iximche (in Panajachel), Guatemala City (Palacio Nacional, Catedral Metropolitana, & more) and Santo Tomas Church (in Chichicastenango). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de La Merced, contemplate the geological forces at Volcan de Agua, steep yourself in history at Iglesia de San Francisco El Grande, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral de Santiago.

Make your Antigua itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is La Aurora Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 59°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
