2009 World Cruise – After spending a day at sea we arrived in Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala. We had a 90 minute drive to Antiqua, a Colonial town that has beautiful, clear views of three volcanoes. The town was very clean, very charming old-Spanish-style. Palace of Noblese
We toured the beautiful baroque Iglesia de la Merced Church, arguably one of the most beautiful churches I have seen. Of course, yellow is my favourite colour so it has bit of an edge going for it from the get go. Lunch was at a five-star hotel that was a well-done blend of modern construction and incorporated ruins.
