Surrounded by 3 majestic volcanoes, Antigua, is a colonial jewel in the central highlands of Guatemala. Blessed with a sublime climate and dotted with magnificent ruins and perfectly preserved colonial churches, Parque Central, is the perfect place to wile the day away. A vibrant mix of Mayan and Spanish descendents as well as a thriving tourism culture makes this a mecca for people watching. I was lucky enough to catch the tail end of Semana Santa, which you can view here: vimeo.com/irenavision/semanasanta and Easter Sunday, which has a much more festive but tranquil vibe. To see more of the fascinating Mayan culture, view Quest for Maximon, vimeo.com/irenavision/maximon, filmed in Santiago Atitlan, a Tz'utujil Mayan pueblo on the shore of lake Atitlan. Thank you for watching. Feel free to email me if you have any questions in regards to the video or future travel plans to Guatemala that I may be able to help with.
