    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Antigua, is classified as a city. However, its population of some 35,000 plus inhabitants, makes it more like a bustling old age town. Located in the central highlands of Guatemala, its altitude of 1,530 meters or 5,020 feet means that the weather is mild with warm, clear days and cooler nights.

    Antigua was the original capital city of Central America formed in March 10th, 1543. The city grew and reached its largest population of some 60,000 people. However, the location was prone to many severe earthquakes and the Capital was moved to Guatemala City in 1776.

    Antigua is a protected World Heritage Site by UNESCO. All street are cobblestone and architecture is 17-18th century colonial. There are some thirty churches, some in ruins. Churches and buildings have a Spanish Baroque flavor.

    Current day Antigua boasts restaurants of International cuisine and an expat population from all over the world. This is a delightful small city, a step back in time. The city is in a magnificent valley, surrounded by three large volcanoes; Volcan de Agua, Volcan Acatenago and Volcan deFuego.

      • Escuintla
        By the high native population that existed during the pre-hispanic period and to be joined indissolubly to the conquest of Guatemala, the population of Escuintla, by its historic process, is found highly mixed, for which the majority speaks Spanish, except for the municipality of Palín the one that still the pocomam is spoken, and in Saint lit up Cotzumalguapa, with some presence of the ethnic group Cakchiquel.

        The escuintlecos are possessors of large natural tourist attractions as their extensive beaches, where the ports excel: Quetzal, San José and Iztapa, as well as spas and turicentros that harbor to thousands of tourists, especially in summer.

        Also remainders of the pre-hispanic can be appreciated, which is done evident in the museum of The Democracy and in the park of this place, the monumental heads of stone carved that are for some, tests of the Olmec culture.

      • San Lucas Tolimán
        San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala is located in the heart of the country surrounded by a beautiful set of mountains and volcanos. This area was one that was devastated by warfare just 10 years ago when the country was in Civil War. Finally with the country out of war and the government rebuilding, the indigenous people are rebuilding their cities and uniting to create communities that will take your breath away.

        The area contains everything a true traveler enjoys. Since the area was in war, there is plenty of opportunity for service work as well as being a prime spot to take day trips to major cities, the Mayan ruins or to the coast. One other unique aspect to San Lucas Toliman is its surroundings. Being in a plentiful area, many different species of plants grow here. This area has a perfect elevation for coffee, pencil trees, rubber trees, bananas, and even sugar cane. With the altitude comes some of the most amazing hikes one could take. With some of the largest volcano's in Guatemala, local's become tour guides taking you on trips that can lead you upwards of 12 hours to the top of volcano's. These trips allow you to have one of the most beautiful views seeing literally from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

        All in all, Guatemala as a whole is a country to keep the traveler busy and awe struck. This is a fantastic area to travel as it always will offer you an experience you have never had.

      • Panajachel
        Panajachel offers the visitors a magnificent view, not only because of the 3 volcanoes that sorround it, but also by its lake Atitlan, the one mention by brittish writer/novelist Aldous Huxley "As the most beautiful Lake in the world".

        The local view at night is marvelous. If your outside, u can see the 3 peaks of the enormous volcanoes (Atitlan, San Pedro and Toliman), and far side the lake on the south, u will see a fourth volcano called "cerro de oro" with lots of rich and dangerous history.

        Panajachel is sometime dubbed 'gringotenango' because it is firmly placed on the gringo trail (and also on the so-called 'stoner trail') but let this not deter you. It is a great place to unwind and you will find it to be an exciting city, with good restaurants, hotels, night life, Spanish schools, parks, car/bike/boat rentals, monuments, markets and museums.
