    I did an overnight Acatenago with an option to hike to nearby Fuego ridge to watch eruption up close.
    There is no words to describe looking down and seeing clouds. In other words, you will be in another world. The hike will provide you with scenic sights, adventure, and opportunity to make new friends. There are many companies in Antigua that will offer you this experience.
    Here is a but part: high altitude. You will be going from roughly 5000 ft in Antigua to over 13000 for Acatenago. The altitude will get you. It is important to do proper training and be prepare to face the altitude sickness consequemces. (For me, i felt like I ran 3 miles by simply going mere 20 meters up). The hike is also strenious uphill. (On the downhill part, you also will deal with loose rocks). So, I would recommend using hiking poles.
    In short, it is not a walk in the park. If you only do ocassional baby hikes, you should probably reconsider it.
    Still, it is worth challenging yourself, exploring your limits and reaping rewards at sunset.

    Loved how friendly our hostess was and the entire experience was centered on teaching rather than selling a product. She made us feel welcome and made sure everyone in a 16-person group had fun. I completely recommend this for anyone who is visiting Antigua, Guatemala. The chocolate is also amazing.

    Pretty arch over the street. Get a picture of the volcano through it if you can too.
    We enjoyed Antigua as so different. Safe to wander. Do wear sensible shoes though, the streets are ALL cobbled with awful gaps and raised ironworks. Pavements are very narrow too. Found the map we had difficult to follow but all easy walking. Lots of interest in buildings and little shops and well as street vendors. Some hustling but they do not linger if you said no thank you.

    Had a blast on an ATV tour with Simoon Tours. First stop Cerro de La Cruz (Hill of the Cross). Gorgeous views of the city! Fernando, our guide, gave us a lovely history of the area & volcanoes. So happy we did this tour that included a coffee plantation and chocolate tour. Well worth the $$

    As it was Xmas season, they had festivities and it was very crowded, but extremely safe. At no time we felt uneasy. Everyone was very polite and helpful. They also keep it clean. A lot of stores and restaurants and a lot of history.

    Fantastic experience!! I was in Antigua for the month of January and finally got a weekend in town to visit the rooftop of La Merced. We were told that experience was only open weekends so plan ahead, we particularly enjoyed sunset.

    Fell in love with this beautiful site. My daughter had her wedding here and it was a fairy tale come to life. Not only are the ruins of the convento unreal but the views are breathtaking . The climate is also perfect. Everything was amazing.

    Really a place to visit, this female convent. Despite the earthquakes, this monument is well preserved. It also houses a very interesting museum. You will be able to admire the tower, an impressive circular structure of 18 cells around the central courtyard. A visit not to be missed if you are in Antigua.
