Antigua Guatemala:

Antigua Guatemala, a city in the central highlands of Guatemala, was founded on March 10, 1543, by Spanish conquistadors, as the capital of the Kingdom of Guatemala; (the area that is now Guatemala, Belize, Chiapas, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua ). The Spanish conquistadors named it Santiago de los Caballeros. La Antigua Guatemala means the "Old Guatemala".

Then Antigua was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1773. The capital of Guatemala was subsequently moved to present-day Guatemala City and Antigua was almost abandoned.

Today, La Antigua Guatemala (commonly referred to as just Antigua or La Antigua) is famous for its well-preserved Spanish Mudéjar-influenced, Baroque architecture as well as for a number of spectacular ruins of colonial Spanish churches. These many historic edifices qualifed it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Since it is one of the oldest and best-preserved Latin American cities, its church ruins and immaculate New Baroque-style Spanish architecture characterize this popular Guatemalan tourist stop.

Antigua Guatemala, nestled in a valley surrounded by the peaks of three towering volcanoes. When you tour the city you will often see the volcanoes in the background. As you visit you can stroll Antigua's cobblestone streets and view the many places of interest dating from the mid-1500's.

A must see tour is of the Cathedral of Santiago, the Church and Convent de Nuestra Seńora de la Merced, and the Church and Convent of Santo Domingo. The city center's Proyecto Cultural El Sitio, found at 5a Calle Poniente, offers arts and cultural exhibitions from theater events to music and dance events. You'll also find colonial-era artifacts, including portraits and statues at the Museum of Santiago (at City Hall). Further, you can visit the Museum of Colonial Art. Also, surrounded by City Hall, the Captain's Palace and the Metropolitan Cathedral, downtown Antigua's Central Park, or Plaza Mayor, is one of the finest plazas in all of Guatemala.

We suggest getting a hotel in Guatemala and then letting them arrange either a car or a tour of Guatemala. We prefer Clark Tours, who have been in business for over 80 years. If you call the hotels Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

We do this all the time, when traveling in Guatemala. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem doing it this way!

La Aurora International Airport (IATA: GUA, ICAO: MGGT) serves Guatemala City, Guatemala. It is located 6 km south of Guatemala City's center and 25 km from Antigua. It is administered by the Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil.

You can take a taxi from the airport to Antigua but we highly recommend that you contact the hotel/villa where you are staying and have them arrange for a shuttle to pick you up from the airport and take you to Antigua. The cost is about $30 including tip. You can do the same on your way back to the airport.

Therefore, we have placed a link to Priceline.Com on this page so you can arrange your flights into and out of Guatemala; as well as your hotel, when visiting this area.
