Guatemala – Antigua, Chichicastenango.

August – We began our 2 week trip to Guatemala driving west of the capital. We have Ivan our personal driver and nice accommodation booked in advance. Antigua, the former capital remains largely unchanged from its colonial past. Narrow cobbled roads and colorful old buildings. It has 3 volcanoes (one active) looming close by. We enjoyed a city tour, a volcano hike and like all our tours in Guatemala, they were personally guided.     Half day drive then to the market town of Chichicastenango. Very, very colourful. The locals dress in traditional clothing and most of the market is not just a show for tourists.
