About a 90 minute bus ride from Puerto Quetzal going from sea level and sugar cane fields to higher elevation where there were coffee plantations. A city that is easy to walk (but hard if using a walker or wheel chair). Cobblestone streets and narrow sidewalks. Drivers were generally considerate. Made a stop at a bakery and got three different... More

One of my favorite cruise stops. They actually stamped our passports at the dock! I am not a coffee drinker, but I actually drank theirs -- black! Best chocolate ever. Learned a lot at the jade museum. Tour led by Hugo Pena at blue planet tours to Antigua was well worth it. Would like to go back

We took Martin Tours' Antigua Guatemala Historical Tour, booked through the Hilton Garden Inn. Our driver, Caesar, was professional, friendly and fun to be with. He took us to interesting and safe places, where we were overwhelmed by all the beautiful colors, friendly people, and history of the city. He also took us to an indoor crafts market, where I...

The historic city of Antigua is a must for the adventuras and curious traveler to Guatemala. The place is just full of a bygone era, whoever you turn you are faced with history. The churches, the convents and every house and dwelling has a story to tell. Hotels are numerous and housed in colonial houses full of character. We walked... More

We were on a cruise. We took the bus from the ship to the Jade Museum in Antigua. There were several guides available. After talking with two, we chose Mirla Carcuz. She spoke clearly and her English was excellent. For almost three hours she walked us through the many fascinating sites in Antigua, explaining the history of the city and... More

I have to say we all latin americans share the same history. I live in Ecuador and the same history is all over the countries. I have been in Colombia and Mexico as well. All cities and countries have the same colonial historic place where there's a church and a park in front. Streets are made it rock. It is... More

We arrived by coach within an hour from Porto Quetzal cruise ship port. The lady guide was excellent as we followed her around this old city with cobbled streets and single or two floors to the colourful buildings(no high rise buildings allowed here) The inhabitants wore colouful clothing and many had stalls or carried their woven cloths and scarves around...

Our guide, Luis, was bilingual and accommodated both English and Spanish tourists. His guide through the city on a very comfortable bus was thorough and informative. I would recommend taking this tour right away when you get to Antigua as it sets your orientation and the sites for further exploration. He gets outside the center of town and gives a... More

travelling through the city gives you a good feel of the Spanish period. Although La Merced and the cathedral are not the biggest and most impressive churches you will have seen, the total picture of the city and its atmosphere is very nice

This place is romantic, is like traveling back in time to colonial times, while being in the best location. You can't skip this city. It's a must in life. Plenty of trendy and bohemian literary cafes combined with a few local bars for nightlife, surrouended by a land of volcanoes and coffee fields. The climate is perfect. People are friendly.... More
