Hello from Antigua!
Hello from Antigua! After an early morning of traveling we have safely made it to Guatemala and are happy to report we are already well on our way on a wonderful adventure! Once we arrived in Guatemala we exchanged our American dollars for Guatemalan Quetzals at an exchange rate of approximately $1 dollar for 7Quetzals. An hour taxi ride brought us from Guatemala City into Antigua where we settled in at our very nice accommodations. We had a quick bite to eat in the Antigua Central Square and then were off to our first excursion, a coffee farm tour. We hiked up a hillside and learned all about the coffee trees and were given the opportunity to pick our own coffee beans.
