GEORGE'S GAY TRAVEL CLUB OF GUATEMALA
A Note from George >>>
Five years ago I packed my bags and bid farewell to the US. Today Antigua, Guatemala is my home and I have never looked back. I love my life here, and I want to do what I can to share this special place with other Gay Adventurers - thus, George's Travel Club of Guatemala!
A trip to Guatemala can be a world-class vacation experience full of amazing places to see and unique things to do. For the average tourist, however, travel in Guatemala can also be very confusing and even dangerous. My clients avoid of all of this and simply enjoy their experience here because I handle all the trip details - thus ensuring their safety and ensuring that they see and do only the best that this amazing country has to offer.
With 33 volcanoes, 21 separate languages, 19 different ecosystems and countless Mayan and Colonial ruins, it is no surprise that Guatemala - a country no bigger than Tennessee - is mentioned four times in the #1 Bestseller, 1,000 Places to See Before You Die.
Antigua, Guatemala's most beautiful and historic city, is a favorite destination for travelers because it is like having a little bit of Europe, just south of the border, but at a fraction of the cost. Nestled between three dramatic volcanoes in Central America, Antigua, Guatemala is one of the world's oldest and most beautiful colonial cities.
This majestic, centuries-old UNESCO World Heritage Site is the most visited city in Central America. Antigua won “TOP City” at the Wanderlust’s 2009 Travel Awards, beating out more than 600 other popular world destinations. In Antigua you can explore the ruins, museums, art galleries, restaurants and shops that are dotted throughout the famous cobblestone streets of this former capital of Guatemala.
Centrally located, Antigua is also the perfect base from which to take short trips to other popular destinations like Lake Atitlan, the Pacific Coast and the world famous Mayan Temples of Tikal. Known as the "land of the eternal spring", Antigua has a humidity-free average temperature of 75 degrees all year round, so there is never a bad time to visit.
With daily direct flights from New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, Atlanta and Dallas, Guatemala is also easy to get to and in less time than it takes to fly to Europe or Hawaii. So whether you prefer a custom-made trip or group travel, either way George's Travel Club is the perfect travel partner for you in Guatemala!
Three years ago I was searching for a new place to live in Antigua Guatemala and came upon a lovely casita with a beautiful interior garden complete with a large tangerine tree that literally “rains”…
Earthquakes are a fairly frequent occurrence in Guatemala, and they have played an important part in the country’s history. This is most evident in the picturesque city of Antigua where spectacular 200-year-old Colonial Ruins can be seen on nearly every corner.
Fuego Eruption - Oct. 1974 - Antigua, Guatemala
IN THE WORLD, there is no better place to be than Antigua, Guatemala for Semana Santa (Holy Week)! You cannot step more than a few feet in Antigua during this time without seeing an alfrombra (spectacular carpets made of flowers and colored sawdust) which adorn every single cobble-stoned street here.
