The Amazing Food
Guatemala has a great culinary history, dating back to the rise of chocolate in Mayan times to the current push into sustainable, fresh, organic crops. If you are a foodie, and especially if you are a foodie into getting your hands dirty, Guatemala offers a wide variety of things to sample, such as the best rum in the world, coffee right off the finca (farm in Spanish!), hand-made chocolates “from the bean to the bar,” and wonderful collection of organic produce, superfoods, and some amazing fruits and vegetables we're pretty sure you probably haven't seen or tasted before. And restaurants??? In Antigua, as well as in Guatemala City, you will find an astounding selection of restaurants and bars. Guatemala is a foodie paradise with 100's of choices such as small, authentic eateries to five-star upscale restaurants, including steak houses, French/Italian/Chinese/Thai cuisine, and even Texas BBQ!
