Looking for information about visiting and living in Antigua Guatemala? You’ve come to the right place!
Welcome to OkAntigua, a project I started more than six years ago as a place to document my journey from full-time US resident to explorer and traveler of the American continent. At first, my plans were to make a brief stop in Guatemala. But the country won me over, and I decided to stick around a little longer.

Eventually, I started blogging about life in Antigua Guatemala. And what a beautiful place it is! So much so that I’ve put my plans to travel the world on hold for the time being, while I explore everything Central America has to offer. I’ve come to know many interesting people seeking information about Antigua and Guatemala in general as a place to visit and as a place to live, both short and long-term.
All the information I’ve written – and a lot more – has been published in an electronic book, “Living in Antigua Guatemala“.
If you’re more interested in visiting Antigua and knowing more about its traditions, history, culture and fun things to do here, take a look at my extensive travel guide, updated with the latest restaurant information for 2017: “Antigua Guatemala Travel Guide 2017“.
To help you get the most out of this site, I’ve arranged the most popular posts below to help you get answers to your most pressing questions about Antigua. I know that seeing is believing, so I’ve also included lots of pictures to give you a sense of Antigua and its people. It’s the site I wished had been available two years ago when I was planning to move here.
I hope you enjoy the site and that you find it helpful!
