1a Avenida Sur, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
"No visit to Antigua is complete without stopping in Cafe No Se!" I was told this several times, by different people, before and throughout my trip to Guatemala. Unfortunately, my itinerary left me with very little time to spend drinking "Illegal...
9 Calle Oriente, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
In the midst of enchanting Antigua Guatemala, La Cuevita de los Urquizu allows you to see, smell, and taste delicious stews steaming in clay pots. An order gets you one stew with your two side dishes for the cost of two typical meals the same size...
Interior Of Finca Filadelfia, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
The Filadelfia Coffee Plantation (or Finca Filadelfia) is just one of Guatemala's many coffee-producing estates, but it's been around for a while—since 1870, in fact. Getting there is fun; the 90-minute drive is a beautiful journey through...
6a Avenida Norte No. 42, (Frente a Iglesia de la Merced), Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala
Tiny spot with super friendly baristas and spot on coffee. Take away or sit at the bar and soak up the atmosphere of this small square. Some super carrot cake bites here too. Enjoy.
Numero 2 Local 1, 7a Avenida Norte 2, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
Make your way to the terrace to enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding volcano and mountains. The Pizza isn't bad either. We visited at lunch but I imagine this place is fantastic in the evening too.

Hector's was my favorite restaurant in all Guatemala. The meat was delicious and tender - It was perfectly cooked. The tiny restaurant only has 8 or so tables and a mini bar overlooking the kitchen where Hector works his magic. The place is dark...

1a Avenida Sur 15, Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala
Having traveled to Antigua many times, I'm always drawn for an afternoon drink to Cafe Sky. The rooftop bar offers panoramic views of the city, as well as the looming and beautiful Volcan Agua. The staff is friendly, food so-so, but the ambience...
2 Avenida Sur, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
We stumbled upon this place on an evening stroll in Antigua. I vote this bar run by an energetic couple, Carlos and Carolina, the most AFARish place in the city. You feel like you are in their living room because you basically are. You can dine...

This is my friends' Bob & Megan's Super Natural Jugo Cafe in Antigua, Guatemala. They go to the Mayan market everyday to buy the freshest mango, papaya, coconut, zanoria, fresa, banano, mora, and more. I lived off the panqueques de banano - and...
