    It was dark, we had our packs and it was cheap. $15 a night for two. The room was kind of grimy and the security was lax. I would probably not stay again,but for what we paid and the circumstances it worked.

    The End of an Era

    A travel blog entry by mdyoung5 on Feb 04, 2015

    Well this is it. My last day in Antigua. I spent the afternoon watching the newest Hunger Games movie, laying out by the pool, and going back to Pastores with Alex for my boots. Unfortunately, the boots didn't work out. They were too tight and couldn't be stretched enough. The poor guy even tried to out the top onto a new bottom part. By that time …

Take a good ...

    ... I met the barista Lucia who is adorable and funny too. I ordered an iced coffee but I think she was so caught up in talking to us that she made all our drinks hot.

The mystery part is that I was still holding the cup, which was now half full, ...

    ... government got bored of fixing up Antigua after earthquakes so decided to move the capital to what is now Guatemala City. I think it may have been a good thing that they decided to move the capital, if it had stayed in Antigua it would likely have been bulldozed and developed and be as ugly as Guatemala City is now. The streets of Antigua are based on the grid system, with Central Park at it's centre and the old town extending ...

    ... former capital of Guatemala, cobbled streets and generally one storey buildings because of the earthquakes which have destroyed or at least damaged a lot of the older buildings. Elizabeth refers to the style as Earthquake Baroque. She is an excellent guide, a fount of knowledge about a city she obviously loves and is very involved with. The main square is home to the Cathedral, or what remains of it, the Palace of the Captains General which is closed for restoration and the ...
