Antigua, Guatemala was our first stop after flying into Guatemala City. We arrived the day before our tour started so we didn’t get in too late on the starting day. Our first night in the town we heard ‘gunshots’ which I thought was really, really sketchy and fireworks all through the night. o.O At 5 am we awoke to a parade going down the street right in front of our hotel. Later that day after exploring the town I realized what I had heard were not gun shots but they were fireworks! There was a big celebration going on in the town for Saint San Francisco, they marched around all day carrying a huge statue of San Francisco. We did a city tour and passed the parade many times, we finally ended at the Church of San Francisco. :)
The next day we left Guatemala and embarked on our first travel day with the final destination for the day being Copan, Honduras. We arrived in Copan later in the day so we didn’t have the option to do many activities that night but we arranged a tour of the Mayan Ruin site of Copan for the next day. I was SO excited to finally see Copan! <3
The next day we left Copan and headed to Roatan, Honduras. I didn’t take a lot of photos in Roatan because most of the photogenic things we in the water, like the barrier reef! But, I do have a video to share! :)
We were in Roatan for almost two full days before we flew to Tegucigalpa, Honduras and drove the rest of the way to Leon, Nicaragua.
I’ll be posting Part 2, the other half of our trip tomorrow … Nicaragua & Costa Rica. Stay tuned! :)
Come join me on this epic Adventure!
