Stepping Back in Time in Antigua

So, here we are in Guatemala with another gay group, and I am hearing what I always hear from my gay groups in Guatemala-- "I can't believe this is Guatemala! Why don't more gay people come here?"

It's true. Guatemala is strangely absent from the gay map, and one visit to the town of Antigua makes this hard to understand. Few places in the world can achieve this kind of rustic elegance.

Once the heart of the Colonial Empire, Antigua was rocked by earthquakes and then essentially abandoned. What remains is a stylish, sophisticated, gay friendly city that looks much like it did 400 years ago.
