Hiking to the Cerro de la Cruz and Hotel Museo Casa Santo Domingo


Hiking to Cerro de la Cruz (the Cross) in Antigua, Guatemala has been dangerous in years past due to robberies, but I had read that the local Police have been much more vigilant in recent years and crime has dropped in the area.  The hike only takes about an hour round-trip and the view is worth it!

Once back down, our next stop was the beautiful Hotel Museo Casa Santa Domingo!  This place was amazing!  The gardens were filled with colorful Macaws or Parrots (not sure which)…
