My friend Corey and I had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful cities of Antigua and Guatemala City. It was especially awesome because our English speaking tour guide, Esteban Calvillo, who was not only well informed in the the history of Guatemala, but he really enjoyed teaching foreigners on the history as well. Antigua is a traveler's favorite, well known for its cobblestone streets, volcano views, colonial architecture, and also it is the best known preserved Spanish Colonial city in Central America. Absolutely loved it. We also visited some of the main important areas in Guatemala City such as Mercado Central (central market) where we bought some fun handicrafts, blankets, and leather products at very affordable rates. We also visited the Palacio Nacional (National Palace) and took some photos and hung out with some locals. Finally, one of my places we visited was a place called Kaminaljuyu which is the site of the ancient Mayan civilization that dated back to 1500 B.C
Thanks Esteban for making this tour very very fun and insightful. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Guatemala!
