Historic colonial beauty made for romance with in-room fireplaces and locally-sourced Guatemalan fare served alfresco
Tucked down a cobblestone street, El Convento steps back into Guatemala’s colonial past with exposed wooden beams, large roaring fireplaces and textured walls. The on-site restaurant and its breezy outdoor seating offer traditional Guatemalan dishes, house-made tea infusions and an impressive wine cellar. Rooms split the difference between old-world charm and modern comforts with stone walls, muted Guatemalan textiles, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Romantic touches include fireplaces, rain showers and outdoor hot tubs.
In the Area
Antigua is nestled at the foot of Guatemala’s volcanoes with a cobblestone downtown area melding both native and European cultures. Admire a Hispanic-period, glass-and-ceramic collection at Museo Vigua de Arte Precolombino, or stop by the gallery-restaurant Sobremesa for dinner and one of 40 exotic house-made ice cream flavors (try the Jasmine Blackberry). An open-air bar at Café Sky and 360-degree, rooftop mountain views is an ideal scenic spot to enjoy over cocktails. For those itching to get out and explore firsthand, Old Town Outfitters has a range of afternoon itineraries, including bike and kayak excursions.
