Antigua Guatemala – Central America

Don’t get confused with Antigua and Barbuda.

SEE

Arch of Santa Catalina

Lago de Atitlan
* a caldera-lake with an elevation of 1.5 km surrounded by deep escarpment and 3 volcanoes — Volcan Atitlan, Volcan San Pedro, Volcan Toliman.

Chichicastenango village
* 2 hrs from Panajachel.
* a picturesque cemetery with candy-colored mini mausoleums for family.

Chichicastenango’s market is a colorful affair where buyers and vendors from the entire Quiche region and beyond meet to trade. Based on the pictures available on net, it reminded me on Sapa market in North Vietnam.

Santo Tomas Church
* a fusion of Mayan beliefs and Catholic rituals
