No trip to Guatemala is complete without visiting Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city widely considered Guatemala’s crown jewel. This half-day sightseeing tour from Guatemala City makes it possible to visit on even the shortest of time frames—squeeze it into a long layover or make the most of a quick trip without skimping on any of the sights.

The majestic "Volcán de Agua" dominates the beautiful landscape around Antigua! Standing at 3,670 mts, it is the perfect backdrop for pictures at the famous "Arco de Santa Catalina", another major landmark of Antigua. The volcano has had no historical eruptions but, back in 1541, a devastating mudflow coming from it destroyed everything on its way. A lake has been formed at its crater and coffee is planted on its lower slopes. Hiking is possible, but at your own risk, as it is quite tiring and there are reviews relating sad happenings while climbing, envolving assaults and robbery. Great pictures - from afar - will mean fond memories to take home! Enjoy!

Took the bus from Antigua to Santa Maria to get to the base of Volcan Agua. It is a long, slow walk to the top. Four or five hours but on a clear day you can see forever and it is well worth it. You sometimes hear stories about people being robbed, but I have make the walk to the top many times and never experienced any trouble.

I was at the foothills of this volcano. It was absolutely spectacular. We were fortunate enough to see it on a clear day. I never knew Antigua Guatemala was so beautiful!

Mynor (my hiking buddy) put it this way, “The day before yesterday (Sunday, April 14, 2019) we were victims of an assault on the descent of the Water Volcano (Volcan de Agua)… six armed guys intercepted us on the way down, took our belongings and hit one of us with a machete. They shot in the air slightly above our heads with one of the two shotguns they carried… I’M REALLY UPSET… By the way things went… In the municipality of Santa Maria de Jesus... they assigned us a person who gave us the guarantee of security who was named “Santiago” that same guy on the way up told us that he needed to go back to town and left us with his brother-in-law. This guy was arguably one of the thieves… on the descent he made his way toward the back of our group… and looked nervous… LISTEN he is the only one who lost nothing (oh, except his machete)… it appears there is cooperation between the municipality and the robbers… so when we got down we shared our experience with the leaders of the Municipality: they only responded with condolences and said maybe things will calm down in a couple of weeks (that is, they know and do nothing)… that’s why I’m making this public… I saw a lot of people on this volcano coming down with kids and women… Is there no danger here? To arrive at a place to enjoy the volcano? And take home a bad experience?... Everybody talks about what happens there but no one does anything about it?... our group consisted of a lady & 5 guys including a North American friend… that’s not counting the security and guide… I hope no one was uncomfortable or offended by this post… but my intent is that this doesn’t happen to anyone that reads this, nor to anyone. I wish this will reach the eyes of the authorities to do something about it… I love the mountain and am against the fact that this volcano has become a nest of thieves who disturb visitors on its trails… We’re grateful to God that we’re ok… but we’re ticked off that this happened…” PS- I’m the “North American”
