    is Antigua the place to be in Guatemala? if so, what's the place and feel like for a first time visitor? what's weather like and what are the must sees?

    I spent 20 days in Guatemala in April last year, including 5 days in Antigua. I can tell you that I'd go back today if I could. Antigua is without a doubt one of the best places to go in Guatemala after Guatemala City.

    I felt safe walking around town almost any time of day and even into the evening, and the weather seemed to always be just perfect every day.

    When you go though, be sure to eat at least one meal at El Mediterraneo - just a block off Antigua's main square. Also, if you can I'd suggest allocating some days for visits to Lake Atitlan and the stunning ruins of Tikal.
