    I recently traveled to Antigua, Guatemala for my 40th with my kids and some family members. Age range 9-55. We stayed at El Convento Boutique Hotel and l would give them a 5 out of 5 rating on cleanliness, atmosphere, location, hospitality. They do not have a spa but they do have the option to get an in room massage. Please only ask for Sonia. The others were NOT it. Some things to note – July is rainy season, so we did have great temperatures, with rain at night mostly. The temperature never passed 85 which in itself was a vibe. While there we ate breakfast at the hotel, and had dinner at panza verde and cafe escobar. We did a cooking class where we cooked and ate our own 3 course meal, we did a jade making museum tour – you choose your own jade, cut and make it into a shape and take home your own creation, and we did the chocolate museum tour – where you learn about everything chocolate and then make your own. We did a walking tour that I booked on GuruWalk – our tour guide was Pablo. He was very enthusiastic about this tour. We shopped at all the local markets. PLEASE PLEASE bargain with these people (but not too much as the prices are already cheap). I wish I was there more than 5 days as their were other parts of the country we wanted to visit, specifically Lake Atitlan. I didn’t put it on my itinerary because of the age group in my group. It requires lots of uphill walking, boats and apparently no wifi. All in all I enjoyed my trip.
