We had just 2 nights in Antigua but made great use of our time. We stayed at my favorite little hotel in Antigua, Casa Cristina. We made great meal choices and enjoyed exploring the streets, colonial ruins, and markets.
Breakfast at Fernando's Kaffee, just steps away from Casa Cristina.
Dinner at La Fonda de la Calle Real; there are 3 restaurants with that name but I hugely prefer the 1 on 3a. Calle Poniente.
Susie told the Mariachi band at this Mexican place near the arch that it was Jennifer's birthday (a little white lie).

One of the highlights was a 2 hour class at Chocomuseo which included information about the history, importance, and processing of chocolate and lessons on how to make an intriguing and delicious variety of chocolate drinks and candy. I highly recommend this activity, especially the tasting parts.

After a nice breakfast on Saturday morning, we packed up and hopped in our shuttle to Panajachel - shout out to Henry of Adrenalina Tours, safe, friendly, and reliable.
