December and January’s Antigua wallpaper calendars are now ready! This wallpaper calendar features Ermita de la Santa Cruz, which we’ve featured before in a previous Antigua calendar. It’s not often you get to see Antigua’s ruins flanked by giant nutcrackers!
Nutcrackers at Ermita de la Santa Cruz
I’d been wanting to get a closer look at the ruins since it’s only open during special events.
I found my opportunity when I heard there would be a Christmas show event – Navidad Fantastica – showing at the venue.
The show was great and our family really enjoyed the Guatemalan Rockettes. Well done and save for the dialogue during the play, which was in Spanish, all musical numbers were based around English-language Christmas songs.
I’ll update this post with a few pictures later. Expensive show by Guatemalan standards at Q200 per person, I couldn’t help but remember that in the US I had paid at least double for similar presentations.
You won’t miss out on Christmas traditions from the US in Guatemala is what I’m trying to say.
