Friday 25.12.09 – Got the complementary shuttle to the airport to meet the shuttle to Antigua. However no shuttles at the airport due to it being Christmas day so we got a taxi which cost $24 and was well worth it. Antigua is amazing. It is like having been transported back in time to 16th century colonial Spain with its cobbled streets, Central Park with its cheeky fountain where the water spurting from a mermaids breasts, beautiful old churches and looming volcanos making a dramatic backdrop to photos! We loved the atmosphere of the market which got into full sway mid afternoon with hordes of people and vendors making and selling filled tortillas.
