Antigua Travel Guide: Top Tips from Afrankvinyl

fashion blogger walks on colorful street in antigua frankvinyl

Hey guys! It’s Francesca from! I’m a Fashion and Travel blogger from California. I recently went on a trip to Antigua, Guatemala, and wanted to share my awesome vacation with you, what we did and what I wore while on vacation. Antigua is an old cobblestoned colonial town located underneath three Volcanoes in the mountains of Guatemala. The concrete buildings are all so beautiful and colorful and many are covered in vines and Bougainvillea making for the most picturesque backdrop!

We had some fun activities that were centered around the wedding festivities and a few off days where we just roamed around the town and got to explore a bit.

There’s so many things to do in Antigua but here are a few great ideas:

  • Hike up the Volcanoes
  • Check out the local coffee and chocolate factories
  • Walk to the local artisan markets and see the gorgeous textiles
  • Wander around and see the monuments (which is what John and I did mostly).
  • Jade Factory
  • ATV tours

A few stand out spots we noted:

  • Fridas : Amazing Mexican food located right under the famous Antigua Arch
  • Cafe No Se: A tiny Mezcal Bar, lit by only candlelight.
  • Cafe Condesa: Best Guatemalan breakfast!

If you ever plan to travel to Antigua, make sure to take only comfortable shoes because all the streets are cobblestoned. It’s a very catholic conservative town so keep that in mind when putting outfits together. I took three pairs of shoes: One translucent sandal to wear on nights out with john, gold slide on flats to wear everyday with dresses and white sneakers for those days of exploring around town. I also packed midi skirts, high waisted stretchy pants and denim jeans to pair with white basic tees. The accessories I took were: gold hoops, gold layering necklaces and small cross-body bags.
