Walking around Antigua – Part I

May 11, 2017

We stayed 4 days in Antigua and to be honest, it wasn’t enough time to see all the places this city has to offer. But with a baby/toddler in the crew the trip has to be about enjoying the whole adventure and not so much about the amount of places you see. Still, we were able to see a lot at our own slow pace and limited timing.

We were just amazed by the beautiful details that go behind some of the churches, as La Merced Church, with its baroque styled and the lovely ornate facade on white and yellow, definitively a masterpiece in Antigua.

A must do during Antigua’s vacations is to take a tuk-tuk ride. We arrived to the church in this lovely model and with the streets being kept as “stone roads” almost in their original shapes, you’re guaranteed to have a free roller coaster-like ride in these awesome three-wheelers. After waking around the park in front of La Merced Church, we visited a local artisan market right on the Calle del Arco, this market is full of every Guatemalan craft you can think of, from clothes to coffee, traditional toys, souvenirs, rugs, baskets, bandanas, posters, framed pictures, postcards, masks and what not. Olivia fell in love with a maraca and a little car, and of course we had to take them home. Then we visited the ChocoMuseo, were we had lunch in a beautiful patio. There was a local artisan lady selling her products, we were just amazed by the way the local artisans produce all these beautiful and colorful fabrics creating lots of derivative products: bags, ponchos, belts, home decor. We found lots of these around the city and feeling always amazed to see them as the first time.

Save for later <3
