I spent 10 days with my girlfriend as a guest of Violeta's at her family guesthouse in Antigua, and that was my best experience in Guatemala. We've been adopted as members of the family and shared interesting conversations, visits and good moments with the family and their guests (mainly young NGO volunteers from various countries but all Spanish speakers). Violeta and her son Fernando did their best to offer us each day differents dishes of Guatemalan food, so we had a comprehensive view of the local cuisine. The location of the guesthouse in front of San Francisco church is ideal, quiet (but with church bell chime in the morning!) and apart from the tourists busy area, but 5 mn. walking distance from the Parque Central. For those who are afraid of coming to Guatemala, or wish to have a life experience here, I will definetely recommand el Peregrino as a GQ to visit Guatemala and get a unique opportunity to know its wonderfull people and share their daily life and better understand the life conditions here.
