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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Antigua: Guatemala City (La Aurora Zoo, Mundo Petapa Irtra, & more) and Iximche (in Panajachel). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Cerro de la Cruz, explore the ancient world of Arco de Santa Catalina, admire the masterpieces at Casa Santo Domingo Museums, and contemplate the geological forces at Volcan de Agua.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Antigua online tour planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is La Aurora Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
