Antigua is a little town located about 40 minutes away from Guatemala City. Its beautiful cobblestone streets transport you past marvelous shops and restaurants. Its beauty lies in its tranquil feel and the warmth that is transmitted by its people. You will find wonderful architecture to enjoy, along with a rich culture. As in all of Guatemala, you will find great arts and crafts and the traditional candy is a must to taste. Although Antigua maintains its traditional status, in the evening, you can sure enjoy excellent nightlife at the several bars and discotheques in the area. Don't hesitate and make La Antigua one of your stops on your tour through Central America.
