Why Stay At Porta Hotel Antigua

Like much of Antigua, Guatemala, this hacienda-style hotel reflects the area's Spanish roots; two pools and kids' activities make it a smart choice for families.

The Scoop

Just three blocks from Antigua, Guatemala's main town square, Porta Hotel is a lush oasis in the heart of the city—with arboles del paraíso (trees of paradise) and scarlet macaws right outside the window. Built on the grounds of a former coffee plantation, this 110-room hotel features well-manicured grounds, two solar-heated pools, and a kids' area—abuzz with face-painting, arts and crafts, and piñatas on weekends. For a taste of Guatemalan cuisine, try the hotel's Los Moros restaurant and the traditional pepián de pollo (boiled chicken breast served with pumpkin-seed sauce), or the arbol de la vida massage at on-site Ceiba Porta Spa, which incorporates local maize for exfoliation and jade stones to activate the chakras.

Insider Tips

At breakfast, don't miss the smoothie bar, which lets you blend your own mix of berries, yogurt, and orange juice.

If you visit during Holy Week, help local artisans weave an alfombra (rug) using looms at the hotel. The finished, stitched-together carpet will be on display until Easter Sunday.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at La Aurora Guatemala City Airport (GUA) which is approximately 25 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 45 minutes of travel time.
