Colonial Antigua & Santa Teresita Hot Springs

Walk through one of the most well-preserved cities in Latin America and then take a dip inside Santa Teresita Hot Spring on this Antigua tour. Each year, tourists come from all over the world to witness firsthand the incredible beauty of Antigua Guatemala.

On this Antigua walking tour, you'll spend about 1.5 hours admiring the Spanish Colonial style that's evident throughout the city's structures. Houses, squares and churches - and more - all reflect this influence. Your tour takes you to major attractions like La Merced Church and Santa Catalina Arch before taking you to the renowned Santa Teresita Hot Springs.

The Santa Teresita Hot Springs are located by Pacaya Volcano and feature 12 thermal pools, as well as steam baths and hydrotherapy baths. The tour includes an introduction to the benefits of a thermal circuit, including muscle relaxation and improved blood circulation. The thermal circuit entails immersing your body in thermal pools of varying temperatures for short amounts of time. You will be able to try the thermal circuit for yourself as a relaxing finish to your Antigua tour. Before returning to Puerto Quetzal to end your trip, you will make a quick stop for lunch.

Hot Springs
April 16, 2019
The ride to the hot springs was interesting and rugged. Enjoyed the lunch and the hot springs. There are actually several different pools of varying temperatures that you do in a circuit--cold, hot, medium, cold, etc. It was fun. Lunch was appetizing and we had choices of food; the service was good. While in one of the pools we sang happy birthday to one of the travelers in our group, and to our surprise they brought out cake and candle for him. Very thoughtful and generous.

The drive into Antigua was long but we got to see a volcano and our guide gave good information about the area. Lunch was excellent and the time at the Springs was amazing!

Colonial Antigua and Teresita Hot Springs

Our guide was very knowledgeable. On the ride to Antigua, he shared lots of information and answered many questions. We had an excellent driver in our air conditioned van. I would have liked to spend a little more time in Antigua, but cruise schedules limit flexibility. Getting us back to the ship on time was clearly a priority. Lunch at the hot springs was delicious. But because of the time schedule, they asked us to change into swimsuits and come to lunch. We were seated in swimwear so I would suggest bringing a cover. The food was delicious! As our visit was on Sunday, no alcohol could be served. The spa was beautiful but a bit crowded.

The bus ride to Antigua was pretty amazing as we circled an active volcano to Antigua; the locals were pretty blase, but we were glued to the windows. Antigua was interesting in the historical sense, but the Hot Springs were a delight! While dipping into pools of various temperatures, you gaze upon the volcanic mountains while enjoying fruit drinks! Excellent!
