Antigua and around - Things to see and do

Antigua is amazingly diverse and offers an incredible variety of activities for its size. Wander the streets alone and visit colonial ruins, churches, museums and art galleries or take one of the walking tours to see the main sights (plan on a couple of hours). 

It is a great place to pick up some little gifts for friends back home. Shop in the handicraft markets for textiles and souvenirs or browse the stores for jade jewelry and masks. Check out current exhibitions and cultural events in El Centro de Formaci├│n de la Cooperaci├│n Espa├▒ola and El Proyecto Cultural El Sitio

Antigua is famous for its language schools and many visitors hang out here for a while taking Spanish classes. Plenty of students also devote their afternoons volunteering with one of the numerous projects in the area. Another popular activity is salsa and lessons are offered at various dance studios throughout town. 

Further afield, visit a coffee or macadamia plantation, take a bike tour around local villages, ride horseback along ancient trails or hike up active volcanoes. There are a multitude of tour operators offering a variety of excursions for the adventurous and the chilled to Chichicastenango, Lago Atitlan and other favorites.
