This is the wonderful view from el cerrito in Antigua. This is the same place where the monumental cross is located up on the hill.
Antigua is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is full of charm and surrounded by volcanoes. There is much to see and do here. Stay a few nights and you will also be delighted.
There is a story to the volcan de agua and how it came to be named. They say torrential rains collected inside the volcano until one day it had collected so much water it spewed water causing heavy damage to the surrounding valley. I just wish the weather would cooperate with me and allow for a clear unobstructed view of the volcano and a fabulous shot.
- Pros:Easy to get around.

- In a nutshell:Perfect hub for any trip, very safe.
