See the highlights of Antigua Guatemala with a “Hop On, Hop Off” bus pass that allows you to linger in favorite attractions before hopping on another bus to a different highlight.


After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a wonderfully scenic drive through the mountainous inland terrain and on to Antigua Guatemala. The city was the country’s capital until a series of earthquakes forced it to be moved to Guatemala City in the late 1770s.


Antiqua Guatemala was subsequently rebuilt, and the beautiful architecture that stands today spurred UNESCO to declare it a World Heritage site, as few Latin American cities feature so many intact colonial buildings. Be sure to notice the Italian Renaissance-inspired grid layout of cobblestone streets, another reason for the UNESCO recognition.


While touring with a complimentary “Hop On, Hop Off” bus pass, you can see the attractions that interest you to most. Architecture buffs might browse the many earthquake-resistant buildings constructed with decorative stucco in the regional barroco antigueño style.


Religious sites are also abundant with two of the most impressive being the Baroque-style La Merced Church and the 18th-century Convent of Capuchinas. The latter has been thoroughly restored and features a round tower surrounded by the nuns’ sparse quarters.


Shoppers will find a wide variety of excellent merchandise throughout town, including traditional textiles, eco-friendly house decorations and fine leather goods. A good place to start is the Casa de los Gigantos mall.
