DAY 02:
I am getting lost in the World Heritage city of Antigua (and I love it).
Breakfast and time for you to get lost in the World Heritage city of Antigua because the rest of the day it's entirely yours. 
So take your time and get out there, walk its famous cobblestone streets, central plaza, cathedral, history and art museums,  jade stores (the sacred stone of the Mayans), fantastic handicraft markets, and much more. 
Visit a local cafe and try probably one of the best coffees you have ever tried, take photos of its unique stores, and don't miss the Calle del Arco (Arch street) and El Mirador El Cerro de la Cruz (with a fantastic panoramic view of the city).
