Antigua Guatemala is probably the most visited city in Guatemala. Hundreds of foreign weddings take place in this majestic city every year.
Antigua is a highland town that is cradled in a misty valley below a chain of dormant (and active) volcanoes. Its proximity to the country's capital city, Guatemala City, allows Antigua to be accessed the very day one arrives. After a mere 3 hour flight from Miami and a 45 minute ride in a private (of shared) shuttle, you reach Antigua. Its cobblestone streets reveal that you have arrived! With its mix of tourists and local artisans, it is a place for strolling and shopping. Antigua brims with fabulous local products such as jade, chocolate, coffee, wood, straw baskets, textiles etc. Spend a morning in the market and you will be sure to be adding precious handcrafts to your collection!
Poke your nose into any opened doorway and you'll find many unique little restaurants and cafes.
Stroll around the magnificent ruins and your heart will skip a beat for a moment or two.....it is here where most weddings take place.
