Day 1: International Airport /Antigua
Arriving at the airport, transfer to hotel in Antigua. We encourage you to spend the evening relaxing after enjoying a stroll through this magical colonial city Antigua - one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Central America. Witness the grandeur of colonial Spain, with its cobbled streets, beautiful buildings and classic architecture, Antigua is on the UNESCO World Heritage Fund. The city was repeatedly destroyed by earthquakes, the most destructive of which occurred in 1773. After this event, the city was unable to recover and lost its former importance. The city looks very picturesque backdrop to the surrounding three impressive volcanoes, and the remaining buildings of the colonial era have survived many earthquakes, floods and fires, give it a special flavor. With its streets and squares, with complex patterns of various tropical flowers and plants, Antigua seems himself as bright flower. Overnight in Antigua, Hotel Meson de Maria / similar
Day 2: Cultural Walking Tour Antigua
Antigua lies in the wide mountain valley of Panchoy, sandwiched between the cones of the volcanoes of Agua, Acatenango and Fuego. The city was founded in 1543 as the third capital of Guatemala, and was called Santiago de Guatemala. And only after the strong earthquake occurred in 1773, the capital had to be moved to a new place in Guatemala City. The city reached its peak by the middle of the 18th century, when an unprecedented construction boom tripled and its population grew to fifty thousand people. By 1773, this city had about 25 churches, 5 women's, 8 men's monasteries and a cathedral built in 1680 and was compared only with the cathedral in Mexico City and Lima, Peru for its beauty and majesty of construction. In 1773 there were 3 very strong earthquakes: the very first that destroyed almost the entire city, all the churches and monasteries happened on July 29, 1773 on St. Martha's Day, so it was called the Santa Marta earthquake. But the most important museum in Antigua is the city itself, its streets, where you can study its history just by walking it. Overnight in Antigua, Hotel Meson de Maria / similar

When its narrow, cobbled streets and red tiled roofs are covered with fog, and this happens often, it may seem like you're in some kind of fairy tale. Crowds of sellers and tourist groups flock on Thursday and Sunday to the country's largest alpine market. The Catholic patron of the city is St. Thomas, in his honor the city of Santo Thomas was built in 1540 in the city. When the Catholic missionaries arrived, they destroyed the Mayan temple and built a white church in its place. The only thing left of the temple is 18 steep steps leading to the church by the number of months in the Mayan solar calendar Haab. Therefore, this church is probably the most unique Catholic church in Guatemala due to religious symbiosis within the church. On the steps of the church they sell flowers, candles and fragrances. Like in the front of the pyramids, an altar is installed in front of the stairs - a round flat stone, from which smoke rises from the smoldering pomp in clubs.
