Is this the right book for you?

My previous book, Living in Antigua Guatemala (also on sale), was written for people exploring a move to Antigua Guatemala. It dives into questions someone would have when considering establishing a residence here, whether temporarily or on a part-time basis, and how to navigate the often cumbersome bureaucracy of the local government.

The Antigua Guatemala Travel Guide is all about the fun part of being in Antigua Guatemala, whether you already live here, or are planning a visit. If you’re planning on visiting for a few days, this is the book to get.

If you’re planning a move here, then this book nicely compliments the Living in Antigua Guatemala guide. I suppose that if you’re going to live here, it’s likely you’ll want to have a bit of fun and go out once in a while too.

Both books are, of course, available for purchase on this site. If you prefer, you can buy through iTunes or at Amazon. It would please me greatly if you leave a review on Amazon if you’ve purchased the travel guide already.

My recommendation is that you purchase here, as that allows you to have copies of the book on multiple devices, rather than being locked into one device, either an iPad or a Kindle.

What does the book look like inside?

Glad you asked. It’s filled with some of my best photographs of Antigua Guatemala. It also has detailed information about each point of interest in town – and there are many, along with recommendations on what to do grouped into activities. It also has practical information for tourists and the Holy Week Calendar for Antigua Guatemala’s 2017 Lenten season, and much more.

If you’ve already had a chance to look through the guide, I’d love to know what you think about it!
