Guatemala boasts amazing, rich Mayan culture set against a tropical rainforest backdrop that never fails to impress visitors who stay at Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Guatemala City. Its new capital, Guatemala City, is often unfairly overlooked even though it is home to beautiful colonial buildings and a lively social and cultural scene worth exploring.

The liveliest capital

Guatemala City was not always the country’s capital; it was moved here when the earthquakes in 1773 destroyed Santiago de Guatemala, which is now simply known as Antigua. The new capital has a vibrant feel that, when you stay at Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Guatemala City, you won’t fail to notice, especially in the streets around Plaza de la Catedral, the Presidential Palace and the central market, which also is home to a handicrafts market, perfect for finding unique souvenirs.


Don’t forget to try the tortillas made with white, yellow and blue corn and, above all, marvel at how they’re made and the characteristic tapping sound that is made when shaping this typical Guatemalan delicacy.

Antigua, the colonial gem of Guatemala

Less than one hour from Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Guatemala City is Antigua, the former capital of the country which was destroyed by earthquakes in 1773. This city is one of the most beautiful colonial gems of America, with the exception of Cartagena de Indias. Its spectacular location, surrounded by three volcanoes (Agua, Fuego and Acatenango, two of which are active) make this old city even more impressive. Its main attraction is the Catholic Cathedral of San José and the multicoloured houses that are scattered throughout the streets.
