About La Antigua
Of all the cities in Guatemala, La Antigua may be the least Guatemalan, but it's a beautiful place, full of opportunities for education, adventure, and relaxation. Expats and travelers gravitate toward La Antigua's springlike climate, modern conveniences, inexpensive language schools, and volcano backdrop.
Architecturally, La Antigua looks more Spanish-Colonial than most Guatemalan cities -- wrought iron in the windows, courtyards in buildings, a spacious town square. It also offers interesting ruins of churches and other buildings toppled in various earthquakes.
Schools -- language schools, cooking schools, art classes, dancing classes -- abound in La Antigua. A great number of La Antigua hostels and other budget accommodations cater to all these temporary foreign students and long-term travelers.
In La Antigua you'll find bookstores with significant English sections, fireworks on the Fourth of July, bars where everyone speaks English, and movie nights to catch up on Hollywood's latest offerings. Despite this Americanization, La Antigua holds on to its Guatemalan charm. One visit to the huge and seemingly chaotic market will prove this. La Antigua's also a shopping mecca for colorful Guatemalan handicrafts. Take the time to chat with the locals or wander away from the center and you'll get a better glimpse into Antigua's Guatemalan core.
The city is a perfect base for adventurous trips to some of Guatemala's prime destinations. The requisite tour is up Volcán Pacaya, where you can take a bag of marshmallows to roast on the hot lava. La Antigua's hostels are social places, where you can meet new friends to accompany you on your tours or independent explorations. Some hostels in La Antigua also offer their own trips, and the local agencies will pick you up right at the door. Many of the hostels offers great amenities such as Wi-Fi, hot water (not standard in all of Guatemala), free full breakfasts, evening activities, and in-house bars.
The city has something for everyone, and if you go with the understanding that La Antigua is its own type of Guatemala, you'll enjoy it

"Unsafe - At first, I really liked the hostel. Nice rooftop terrace, interesting guests, friendly atmosphere. But on the first day, my camera and money were stolen out of my room when I was showering. The staff was completely unsympathetic and told me that it was impossible that anything had been stolen and I must have misplaced it. They took down the note I posted begging for my SD cards back (I lost all of the pictures I had taken over the...

Jungle Party Hostal
"Jungle Party Hostal is a much better place to stay than it's name implies (the name actually came from the fact that after parties used to be held in it when it was dilapidated and full of trees, like a jungle) and, on their website, they even have enough spirit to make fun of their name, making it acceptable! The hostel is centrally located and popular. Travellers are greeted by a cheery courtyard with comfy hanging chairs and a tv and a...
"El Hostal is a simple, clean, and fairly small hostel conveniently located a five-minute walk from the Parque Central in Antigua.

Posada Don Valentino
"Sadly charmless -- you can do so much better in Antigua - This could be a really nice guesthouse. It has a great location between the market and the Plaza.
