Antigua Guatemala

Antigua is a rather obvious place to visit on a Central America tour. Everything is easy, the possibilities to stay seem nearly endless and if I was hungry such etablisments like Bagel Barn, Burger King, and McDonalds were luring me with their typical smell. But between the more touristy places there is also a lot of old and charming houses left.
When not prevented by streams of rain water from the last downpour I could enjoy wandering the alleyways into the more remote parts of the town, having an overview from Cerro de la Cruz with the mighty vulcanos of the area around, or just sitting in the park on the central plaza watching the natives, the indegenious from the surounding villages, and the tourists alike.

In the typical rectangular pattern the streets of Antigua lie below volcan Agua.
