Highlights of Antigua

Formerly the colonial Spanish capital of Central America, Antigua today is a UNESCO World Heritage Center Site as well as a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Guatemala.

Your Antiguan experience begins as your expert tour guide picks you up from the cruise pier for a scenic, 90-minute air-conditioned ride through forests, past volcanoes, and stunning examples of Spanish Baroque influenced architecture to Parque Central, in the heart of the city. This park with its large fountain, circular walkways, and inviting benches hums along with the friendly yet bustling activity of tourists and locals alike. Stand outside the 17th century Church of La Merced with its twin bell towers and graceful yellow and white facade. Continue on to Cathedral Church and the ruins of the Santo Domingo Convent. This monastery was edified in 1529 and today some of its post-earthquake remains have been converted into a luxury hotel.

At the Jade Factory and Museum you will learn about the various types of jade, how this mineral is mined and processed then fashioned into beautiful jewelry. Be sure to touch the jade rock formation in the middle of the showroom for good luck! While in the city you will have time to browse the shops and admire locally handcrafted items. Pick up a souvenir or two before your return back to Quetzal Cruise Port.

Reserve your spot now and get ready to witness the beauty and history of all Antigua has to offer.

Interesting day
February 23, 2023
From traffic jams caused by recent rock slide to a very good local orientated lunch our tour guide did a wonderful job. He was very easy to understand. From the sugar cane to snakes and banana plants and also a nice series of volcano activity. But sure wish he had given us more time in the town square with all the local vendors that come once a week and ply their goods.
