Recommended Posts

We will be in Guatemala in October on Celebrity Infinity Panama Canal cruise and are trying to decide on an excursion..

We have narrowed it down to a hand full but would like others opinions on them before we choose.

 

 

  1. GQ07 Antigua - Self Guided
  2. GQ10 Colonial Antigua - Past & Present
  3. GQ12 Panoramic Antigua
  4. GQ22 The Best of Colonial Antigua
  5. GQ25 San Juan Del Obispo Palace & Antigua
  6. GQ14 Guatemala Highland, Panajachel & Lake Atitlan

Thanks!

Thanks!

 

This is a good one! They provide the transportation to and from Antigua and you do whatever you wish while you are there. :)

Happy to hear you say that, as we are doing this with NCL next winter. Any particular tips/advice re Antigua? Things not to miss? Thanks!

 

OP: you might want to ask your question on the Celebrity board, if you haven't done so already.

What we enjoyed would probably not appeal to most.

We love going to local bars. :D

We'll be on the same cruise!! We too are looking at the self-guided Antigua tour. I've looked at TripAdvisor for some additional information on what's going on locally from a safety perspective and haven't found much that's recent. State Department lists Guatemala as a Level 2, Exercise Caution for crime, but for perspective both France and Italy are Level 2 for Terrorism. 😛

 

My husband is very cautious and is hoping we can get some more info!

Sorry, forgot one item! One of the locals in Antigua did recommend that if you are going to Antigua and plan to shop the markets, cash is more readily accepted there. S/he said many of the local shops will take cards, but cash is still king, so to speak. 🙂 I'm going to hit the port ATM when we get there!
