The Wedding Website of Augusto Castillo and Alvaro Ruiz
We’re very grateful that you are considering coming to Guatemala to celebrate our wedding. Here we share some of our recommendations to discover what Guatemala has to offer.
DISCOVER ANTIGUA GUATEMALA

DISCOVER ANTIGUA GUATEMALA

Antigua Guatemala, commonly referred to as just Antigua or la Antigua, is a city in the central highlands of Guatemala known for its preserved Spanish Baroque-influenced architecture as well as a number of ruins of colonial churches. The city was the capital of the Captaincy General of Guatemala from 1543 through 1773. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. From its pastel-colored colonial buildings to its crumbling church ruins, you might think Antigua lives up to its name (which translates to ancient). But there’s a youthful energy that permeates the city, from its bustling markets to the slopes of neighboring volcanoes. It’s Guatemala’s most-visited destination, and with a laidback attitude and stunning scenery, you’ll be tempted to join the masses. The dry season runs November through April, and you’ll enjoy clear blue skies and warm sunshine. Listed as one of the most enticing cities in Central America by The New York Times.
