    Had an incredible solo-brunch date at this gorgeous farm. The ham and cheese omelette was so tasty, came with all these fabulous sides, a salad that made me feel healthier than I had in weeks, and attentive service. Great wifi- posted up for an hour long meeting that never dropped.

    A clean and well-organized local market that spans two or three blocks on the western end of town off Avenida de Santa Lucia. Like many Latin American markets, this one features everything from food and produce, clothes, shoes to tourist trinkets and artisanal products. A large proportion of the market is covered but there are also many stalls out in the open forming a kind of a maze. Fairly safe for a tourist, though as usual, I'd be careful with my wallet. Prices are a bit cheaper than in the center of town, but not always. Haggling is recommended.

    This smaller mercado is blocks closer than the main mercado in Antigua. It is a maze of tightly-spaced booths. Certain days of the week (Thursdays and Saturdays, I think), there are outside vendors.

    A beautiful spot with glorious colourful artwork. I bought a piece from them via their Facebook page and received excellent service, continual updates, fast delivery to the UK and I am extremely happy with my purchase! Highly recommended.

    The work that is on display and available for sale is vibrant and eye catching. The photographer who is behind these photographs, uses the profits from the sale to help the children in the photographs go to college.

    The selection of huipils, other textiles, carvings, and other handicrafts is almost overwhelming. I could have spent hours here. The staff were all amazingly helpful. This is on the must visit list for Antigua. Already looking forward to coming back.

    This was part of a walking tour I took through the city. It was a little bit commercial but the short presentation about Jade was awfully interesting. Did get an opportunity to see the various kinds of Jade and how it is cut and polished. Also learned a little bit about how it's different from the Jade in China and Myanmar, both countries I have visited. I don't know how good the quality was but the pieces were beautiful. I bought a necklace and a bracelet both of which were shortened and the price discounted appropriately while I waited for about 10 minutes. A nice opportunity to get your jewelry the length you want.

    We liked this artisan market, because it is well laid out (i.e., easy to make sure you see all market booths), clean and open to the fresh air. There seems to be a larger variety of merchandise available than what is found in some of the other markets in Antigua.

    However, if you don't want to overpay for the merchandise, then you must haggle on the price. If you hate haggling, then this would not be a good place for you to shop.

    I had such a lovely time browsing around the shop. Gorgeous crafts curated by Guatemalans with the knowledge to see true artistry. I love that they help crafts people bring their treasures to a market that appreciates the quality and value of their work. Delightful.

    It is my understanding that this local establishment has been producing sweets for a very long time and that the recipes
    have stayed the same throughout the years. The interior is charming with wood and glass cabinets filled with delectable goodies and walls lined with ceramic colorful owls. I had a Canillita de Leche which is like a dissolve in your mouth, sweet white fudge and a Higo (candied fig) which was amazing! Difficult to explain the texture of a candied fig but don’t worry about it; just go there and get one, or two, or three of everything!

    The home goods are so beautiful in Colibri! The bedspreads and pillows are stunning. Make sure to stop in when in Antiqua, Guatemala, Cathy
