Day 5 We will spend 1 night in Antigua Guatemala,
Antigua is a small city surrounded by volcanoes in southern Guatemala. It’s renowned for its Spanish colonial buildings, many of them restored following a 1773 earthquake that ended Antigua’s 200-year reign as Guatemala’s colonial capital. Notable architectural examples include baroque La Merced church. It’s an integral part of the city’s famous Semana Santa, a holy week with parades and rituals and its amazing hotels build on ruins from colonial churches and buildings.
CAN'T GO BUT WOULD LIKE TO DONATE
Please donate. 50 donations of $100 each would help cover the costs of building the bicycle shop.
By donating you are creating a sustainable program that will empower, not only this group of ladies, but all the girls that will go through the program. You are not donating a bicycle, you are empowering women around the world.
