Antigua Guatemala is located 20 miles (32 km) from the capital, Guatamala City.

It was the colonial Spanish capital of Central America from the 16th to the 18th centuries, and has preserved much of its traditional character.

It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and perhaps the most popular travel destination in the country.

In addition to its historic center, Antigua Guatemala also offers colorful daily markets and a scenic setting amongst volcanoes, with diverse hiking and mountain biking options.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
