SaucyGlossie blogger Lindsey Calla recently visited Antigua Guatemala, a UNESCO World Heritage site. She shared her favorites sights, shops and restaurants with us…and showed us how she styled her favorite looks from resort.

SEE

  • Volcano Pacaya: “Rent a Vespa and drive up the side of the mountain to get some unrivaled views.”
  • Casa Popenoe: “A restored colonial mansion that’s a peek inside the lives of the 17th Century elite.”
  • San Jose Cathedral: “Don’t let the modern façade fool you. Around the back are the ruins of Antigua’s oldest and largest cathedral. Truly awe-inspiring.”

SHOP

  • Algodones Mayas: “This store is filled with beautiful cotton textiles that are naturally colored and chemical-free in true, authentic Mayan style.”
  • El Mercado: “For textiles and jewelry you can’t go wrong in the markets on the west side of town.”

EAT

  • La Fonda de la Calle Real: “Hands down, some of the best tortillas and queso around.”
  • Casa Santo Domingo: “This favorite of Bill Clinton’s puts a luxury spin on some classics. Try the ‘my tacos,’ a hybrid of taco and eggroll.”
  • Doña Maria Gordillo Dulceria: “An old sweets shop that packages your candy in charming painted boxes. Tell the shop lady your price and let her pick out a yummy selection to sample.”

STAY

  • Panza Verde: “Every square inch is beautiful and unique. There are no two rooms alike.”
