Antigua, the capital of the Captaincy-General of Guatemala, was founded in the early 16th century. Built 1,500 m above sea-level, in an earthquake-prone region, it was largely destroyed by an earthquake in 1773 but its principal monuments are still preserved as ruins. In the space of under three centuries the city, which was built on a grid pattern inspired by the Italian Renaissance, acquired a number of superb monuments.
i loved the people, the atmosphere and the things that one learns. The culture is so rich, and we all learn something new. I recommend that people get to see this city in their lifetime. The food is also very delicious.
you have to see THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAKE OF THE WORLD
By A Yahoo Contributor, 9/24/07
well i liked everything, but the most wonderful experience was....,the lake of atitlan, this lake is located in panaxachel, i was there about 3 days, i could see many differents things like masks, clay pots,beads.etc. You have to go there and get an experience that you never have had before.well, now about the antigua: i've remembered everything, you can try one kind of the best food of the world. For example: quesadilla, when you read quesadilla you thought about a tortilla filled with cheese and chicken, but in guatemala the people call quesadilla to one thing like bread but exquist. Relleditos this thing is something very delicuos, it's something like mash banana roll filled with beans in there....,well i got hungry, i hope go back..bye. Go to guatemala.

There is live music most nights and the bartenders are friendly to all comers. It's a good place for late breakfast -- the staff has been drinking all night, so if no one is up, try its sister juice bar Tu Pina Tambien across the street -- a legendary all you can eat Sunday brunch or mellow happy hour drinks. It really starts taking off at 9 or 10 PM and usually stays open late enough -- 2 AM, 4 AM, or all night -- to do serious damage to even the most conservative tippler... English is spoken, more badly and more badly as the night goes on... Say hi to Bartender Mike and savor his dry wit.
