Rudy previously called it Stairway to Heaven. I call it The Enchanting Nook. Months ago, during my first visit to La Antigua in December of 2008, just a quick peek into the entryway of Hotel Centro Colonial Antigua was enough to draw me in so I could explore the beautiful grounds further. I had to laugh when I realized on this trip that I had been lured back to the very same place! It’s not just the decor, design and color of the hotel’s entryway… it’s the light. This place seems to be perfectly positioned to bounce and reflect everyday, natural light so eloquently – lighting up the neon-fanned leaves, the bronzed railings, the warm mossy and earth hues of the walls. This time, I was brave enough to venture beyond the magical stairway and the first floor.
Entonces… more photos of Hotel Centro Colonial to come!
