My husband and I just returned from Guatemala City with our daughter who adopted a beautiful 11 month old baby girl. While there we took a day trip to Antigua, and it a wonderful old city. We ate at the Hotel Santa Domingo, and it is beautiful there, with excellent food. I would recommend that hotel to anyone. It was so neat walking around the old city with flowers blooming everywhere. Such a nice experience.Even the baby loved being out seeing all the sights. School children in their uniforms were taking day trips there, and were all in the beautiful park. I think Antigua is a well kept secret, that maybe people that travel have missed. It is worth the trip.

My daughter is adopting a baby from Guatemala. My husband and I will go with her to Guatemala City to receive the baby the first of next year. While we are in Guatemala, we plan to visit Antigua. It looks like a beautiful place, with all the old churches, squares and ruins. I enjoyed looking at these wonderful pictures very much. Elizabeth Post Winston-Salem, North Carolina
