Wander cobbled streets, sample Guatemalan and Asian food, and take advantage of some of the cheapest Spanish schools in the country, all in this colonial town nestled among the green mountains of Western Guatemala's highlands. Hot springs, volcanoes, lakes, and indigenous markets nearby make for excellent day trips out of the city.
