The Magic of Antigua, Full Day City Walking Tour
…an easy tour for anyone with a love of history, culture and architecture
Julio Tours Central America will be waiting for you to disembark from the ship. We will have a sign with your name on it so there is no confusion. We will begin our tour in a comfortable air conditioned vehicle with a one and half hour drive from Puerto Quetzal. This will give you an idea of the land and an opportunity to see some of the customs of the locals as we wind our way through. There are two volcanos that are easy to see and photograph from the road, Volcan Fuego and Volcan Agua, fire and water.
We will arrive in the magical city of Antigua. Guatemala is the most traditional of all the countries in Central America. This charming city is filled with beautiful architecture highly influenced by the Spanish Baroque period as well as colonial churches and well deserving of its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The feeling you get while walking through Antigua is unlike anywhere else. The morning mist, the colors, traditional clothing along with a volcano backdrop, really give you a sense of being somewhere rather magical. The people of Antigua are proud people and you will immediately notice the entrances to their homes. The detail is outstanding and every corner you turn is filled with flowers and a feeling of anticipation of the next photo opportunity.
Although the city is not large there is plenty to see. We will visit Central Park where the locals gather in the evening with their family and friends to take advantage of the night air. We will visit the churches and have time to view the truly incredible intricacy of the architecture. There is also a large market in town with a myriad of souvenirs for young and old before we have lunch and return to your ship.
