Arch Street

This picture was taken in Antigua, Guatemala on the Arch Street. The street is actually called 5th Avenue, but the name Arch street is a bit more descriptive. The arch served as a place for nuns to walk above the streets from a school to a convent, and back. Now the arch is one of the defining characteristics of Antigua. The street is closed to cars on the weekends and offers loads of nice restaurants and some good shopping too. This street is really lively on the weekends and it’s fun to walk along, seeing the street performers and listening to the music that is almost always playing. The street also leads directly to the central park, so if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you aren’t to far away from the city center. Also lots of places around here have access to wifi, so if you want to do a little more research about the town, you’ll be able to in one of the cute coffee shops along the street or in the square.

A chicken bus travels down a bumpy cobblestone road in Antigua. All the streets are like this, and all are lined with the front walls of colorful houses, like you can see here. In the background is a volcano, which can be seen in many areas of Antigua. If you are interested you can even book a trip to go do a volcano climb. It's a lot of fun, hard work though, but on the way down you are more or less surfing through ashy rock, which is EXTREMELY fun. I'd highly recommend it, but if you are planning on doing this you should eat a big breakfast first and make sure you have a protein snack and some water 🙂

Beautiful arch in the little town of Antigua, Guatemala. Antigua is a great place to go and relax while still seeing a lot of neat stuff. You can also take lots of little trips to other areas from this (fairly central) location. Plus all the food is really good and people are really friendly.
