Antigua, Guatemala (1/8)

Derek Coleman Antigua, Guatemala

You definitely won’t be bored and out of things to do in Antigua, Guatemala. If you’re able-bodied and looking for a hike, Acatenango is a life-changing experience where you get to hike a volcano and camp out on the top while you watch another volcano erupt all night. It’s certainly not an easy hike but if you think you’re up for it then it’s an experience of a lifetime. If you’re looking for a party, every Saturday night shortly after midnight there’s an infamous rave in an abandoned swimming pool. Every week word gets around that the rave is canceled because police broke it up but it never fails. It’s a bit of a secret but if you’re staying at one of the party hostels like Tropicana or Doozy Koala then you’ll be sure to hear about it. If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, Antigua is a great spot to take Spanish lessons and Matiox Hostal is a nice, quiet, and friendly hostel that even have a hot tub for when you return from your volcano hike.
