OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Antigua and the highlands
Once one of Spanish America’s greatest cities, Antigua nowadays is a picturesque place retaining the best aspects of its Guatemalan heritage. Encircled by three volcanic peaks, the city hosts boutiques, galleries, arty cafés and restaurants interspersed amongst cobbled lanes and shady plazas. Beyond in the western highlands are traditional villages with flourishing markets such as Chichicastenango which is a riot of colour.
