The former capital of Guatemala and a World Heritage Site, Antigua retains its colonial charm and remains one of the most visited destinations in the country.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Arco de Santa Catalina and Convento de las Capuchinas. Do some cultural sightseeing at Volcán Pacaya and Iglesia de La Merced. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Antigua: Guatemala City (Museo Ixchel del Traje Indigena, Museo Popol Vuh, & more). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at Casa Santo Domingo Museums, savor a delicious cup with a coffee and tea tour, make a trip to The Plaza Central Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de San Francisco El Grande.

In September in Antigua, expect temperatures between 76°F during the day and 61°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
