Guatemala boasts twenty-three active volcanoes. A volcano regularly spews ash clouds over the beautiful city of Antigua, established at its base. Antigua is typical Spanish colonial city with cobbled plazas, churches, houses and lovely gardens. It is as pretty as a picture postcard.
Beautiful Lake Atitlán, in the crater of a volcano, is surrounded by three volcanoes and encircled by little villages. Coffee plantations grow in the surrounding valleys.
