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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Santo Tomas Church (in Chichicastenango), Guatemala City (La Aurora Zoo, Iglesia Santo domingo, & more) and Iximche (in Panajachel). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the geological forces at Volcán Pacaya, delve into the distant past at Convento de las Capuchinas, indulge in your favorite hot beverage with a coffee and tea tour, and take an in-depth tour of Casa Santo Domingo Museums.

You can plan Antigua trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is La Aurora Airport. In October in Antigua, expect temperatures between 28°C during the day and 19°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
