There are many colorful buildings in Antigua. Also, there are no telephone poles in the old city - all of the wires are underground, thereby preserving the Old World colonial atmosphere!Antigua, former Spanish colonial capital city of the Central American viceroyalty, was founded in 1543. Though partially destroyed by the 1773 earthquake, it still preserves its colonial character with ornate churches, convents and Spanish-style homes. It is also home to some of the best quality arts and crafts in the country — a "must see" on any trip to Guatemala.

Approximately 190 miles north of Guatemala City, in a jungle-choked region called the Peten, lie the astonishing ruins of Tikal, principal city of the Maya people. The Maya civilization extended from what is today Yucatan, Mexico throughout Guatemala, and thrived from 600 B.C. to about 900 A.D. At its height, Tikal had over three thousand stone structures and supported over one million inhabitants within the city and its surrounding area, and is the most grandiose of all pre-Columbian Mayan ruins.Tikal Pyramids, Guatemala

• Breakfast and taxes at hotels
• Motorcoach tour of Tikal ruins with English-speaking guide & lunch
