Antigua Guatemala (Old Guatemala) is a mystical city set in the central highlands. Its Spanish-Colonial homes, churches, and ruins sit squarely below the peaks of three volcanoes that seem to rise from the clouds.

At the heart of the city, Central Park borders the Mermaid Fountain and overlooks the streets where religious processions and festivals celebrate Easter. Strike a deal with a vendor selling wooden sculptures, ceramics, silver jewelry, and hand-carved furniture at a local market—bargain-shy shoppers will undoubtedly pay full price.
