Please see below a few photos from the trip:

Thursday, November 14:  10:30 a.m. meet in the V.I.P. departure area of my house

 11:00 a.m. ... bus to Quetzaltenango, with a lunch stop at "Rincon Suizo" near Tecpan

 

Hotel Pension Bonifaz, in the main square, overnight, with breakfast.


Drinks at 6:30 p.m. on the terrace of "Balcon de Enriquez", overlooking the main square


Dinner at 7:30 p.m. "Sabor de India", a short 4 block walk.  Click to see the menu.

Friday, November 15:  Breakfast at Pension Bonifaz. 
Leave at 10:15 a.m. from the parking lot on the top flor of the hotel.
 11:30 a.m. - 1p.m. ... tour of "Museo Casa Botran", with tasting!

Return to Antigua in the afternoon.

  • COST:  bus, Q300 per person with the 18 people we have so far.  I think that 20 is about the limit.  The bus has some 27 seats, but we will each bring an overnight bag.  This pays for the bus, a hotel room for the driver, a dinner and a tip for him also.
  • 6 additional people plan to drive on their own to Hotel Bonifaz, which has a parking lot on its top floor, enter through a narrow street behind the hotel.
  • Hotel Bonifaz was Q795 in March, for a nice room and they offered us a good discount, only Q600 for The Antigua Curry Club. 

    For single rooms, they charge Q695, but for The Antigua Curry Club only Q450.  

    This price includes taxes and a good "chapin" breakfast on Friday morning.

  • Your own meals and drinks at "Sabor de La India", I will provide a menu, the two items you see at the top of this page, plus a vegetarian thali.  Although in March the lamb was a bit tough, it was delicious and they promise to make it more "suave" for us.
  • We will return to Antigua after the tour ... maybe we stop along the way for lunch ?
