About Antigua Guatemala


In 1990 it was still a pile of rubble left over from a series of earthquakes which roll through from three volcanoes. Today, Antigua is Guatemala's artificial colonial showcase and serves as tourist base camp for exploring the interior. Antigua's Spanish schools are a bargain. Come as a blank slate and leave with Spanish fluency, knowing Latin ways.

Antigua Guatemala (Old Guatemala) was once the capital of all Central America. In 1773, the city was destroyed by an earthquake and the Spanish king ordered all residents to move to the new capital, Guatemala City. Some inhabitants stayed behind and tried to rebuild the beautiful colonial style houses with lush courtyards.

During the Corona period, Antigua was cut off from tourism and tourist industry went out of business. The local population moved back in, and the former souvenir stores now sell refrigerators and stoves.

From Antigua, you can take volcano hikes and trips to the Pacific surf. An elaborate shuttle system keeps you well connected to all of Guatemala.

In 1969, American and English linguists founded the first Spanish school with the goal of teaching the Spanish language and researching and preserving Mayan languages and culture. This movement spread throughout Guatemala. Allthoug many Spanish schools had to give up during the pandemic, the best ones are still lelft.
