Step into ancient ruins, wander cobblestone streets, drink coffee in tranquil courtyards and delight your palate with the scents and flavors of Mesoamerica.

It is touristy, charming, and beautiful. I love revisiting old favorite places as well as discovering new ones to add to my “next time I’m in Antigua” bucket list. Whether you’ve never been to this gorgeous colonial town, or are looking for a few new spots to check out, this list should help! Here are 25 fantastic things to do in Antigua Guatemala.
