La Antigua Guatemala

Superbly situated in a sweeping highland valley, suspended between the cones of Agua, Acatenango and Fuego volcanoes, is one of the America`s most enchanting colonial cities: Antigua. In its day this was one of the great cities of the Spanish empire, ranking alongside Lima and Mexico City and serving as the administrative center for the Audiencia de Guatemala, which encompassed all of Central America and Mexican Chiapas.
These days Antigua is a heaven of tranquillity. Offering a welcome break from the unrelenting energy of the capital, it has become the country's foremost tourist destination, a favoured hang-out for travellers to recharge. It's almost inevitable that you'll run into someone here that you met in a bar in Mexico City or on a beach in Honduras. Aside from the lively bar scene and great choice of restaurants, the main attraction is the relaxed ambience and the beauty of Antigua itself.
