Lake Atitlan to Antigua

This morning a shared van picked us ip in Panajachel on Lake Atitl�n. The van drove us about two hours southeast to Antigua.

Antigua is a beautiful former colonial town that is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The van dropped us off at our hotel and then we spent the rest of the afternoon exploring Antigua. It has lots of historic buildings and ruins from the many big earthquakes that have occurred here. We toured a textiles museum and checked out dinner places.

We capped off the day with a wonderful steak dinner. At a restaurant not too far from the hotel.

  1. The restaurant looks like it could be in Paris or San Francisco. Is the entire town (other than the ruins) like this?
