There is little chance of running out of things to do in Antigua, Guatemala.
Antigua, the “Land of Eternal Spring” is Guatemala’s top tourist destination. Charming colonial buildings, crumbling cathedrals, vibrant color palettes, bustling markets, buzzing cafes; the energy and atmosphere in Antigua is tangible and infectious. This colonial city hums with life both present and past, a literal living relic.

Located just forty-five minutes from Guatemala City in a stunning valley rimmed by sky-scraping volcanoes, Antigua should be on everyone’s “must visit” list while traveling or backpacking in Guatemala. It is truly a unique city, blending a vibrant past and stunning surroundings with rich culture and that gritty urban feeling found in many Central and South American cities.

We spent ten great days in Antigua. At no point did we feel like we lacked for things to do, places to see, streets to explore. We reckon you can stay twice as long and still not run out of things to do in, or around, Antigua Guatemala.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
