How about being contagious?

Entreteniendo y energía

How do you get people infected with good stuff? I mean, it is difficult for foreigners to visit Guatemala, and, sometimes, that’s even true for Guatemalans living overseas. Taking on a lesson from our friend Iván Castro, we can only do it by getting everyone infected with good stuff.

So, here is one of my attempts at infecting you 😉

How many countries have so many volcanoes, so many mountains, so many cultures, so much diversity, and in all, so much greatness? (don’t ask about negative stuff, eh) Very few countries, and Guatemala is one of them…

Antigua is surrounded by volcanoes that give sunsets a subtle, beautiful touch. And, just walking around on Sunday; you can find even more good stuff. On Friday’s afternoons (4 p.m.), there are also free concerts by the Central Park. Music is also in and around Antigua. Art in general.

Paraphrasing a bit Colombia’s tourism slogan “The Only Risk Is Wanting to Stay”, the chances are that if you come to La Antigua Guatemala, you’ll want to stay and live here; I know I did! ;O)

    I love this blog for many reasons, but I’ll just mention 3.
    – Reading it makes me transport myself to Antigua and reminisce about my visits when I was little.
    – The pictures remind me of the reasons why I love Guatemala so much.
    – Last but not least… I have a deep admiration for passionate people that are persistent in making their dreams come true and are driven to share the best of our Guatemalan assets: Our Culture!!
    Many of us are looking forward to our visit to Antigua next year!!
    Thank you “Tio” Arturo for the beautiful pictures!
