Beautiful Antigua

Our week with Jason's parents in Antigua was lovely. Antigua is a beautiful city -- full of garden cafes, gorgeous courtyards, intriguing gates/doors ... and for New Years, LOTS of tourists and LOTS of fireworks :)

I had been nearly eight years since I last visited and was wonderful to see it again. Unlike Pana, there are sidewalks everywhere and the streets incredibly picturesque -- although in contrast, most the tiendas have iron bars protecting their inventory and workers :(

Antigua's arch is not to be missed, but it is also full of beautiful churches, ruins all over the place and gorgeous volcanoes surrounding the city.

No trip to Antigua is complete without a trip to Mono Loco for nachos "as big as your head!" Delicious!
