TOUR TO ANTIGUA
Port of Call: Puerto Quetzal

Depart from Puerto Quetzal and travel the colonial town of Antigua Guatemala (1.5hrs). La Antigua (the old one), former colonial capital of the Kingdom of Guatemala, combines 17th and 18th century buildings and ruins with all the modern conveniences discerning travelers desire. The city was established as Santiago (St James) in 1543 after a mudslide destroyed the former capital. Santiago’s history was punctuated by massive earthquakes, followed by rebuilding and reparation, until the earthquake of Santa Marta in 1773 prompted a move to the present capital in Guatemala City. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, Antigua exudes a unique atmosphere of history, intrigue and surprise. Resting in a fertile valley at 1530m and surrounded by hills and volcanoes, Antigua’s climate is likened to ‘eternal spring’. Your tour will cover the architectural & historical highlights of this colonial city with a behind-the-scenes look at some of the many ruined churches, convents, and cathedrals. Entrances are included to the Iglesia San Francisco, the Cathedral, Central Park, and La Merced Church. Enjoy a typical style lunch at a local restaurant in Antigua. After lunch, we’ll transfer back to the ship.
