Whatever the reason or the season, you can find excellent wine selections in La Antigua Guatemala; many restaurants feature extensive wine lists, as well there are always hidden and not so hidden treasures at Tienda Delicio and Epicure (deli and garden restaurant).
CIRMA, or the Center for Regional Investigations of Mesoamerica, has a history dating back to 1978, when it began as an effort by two dedicated U.S. scholars to preserve Guatemala’s history. It has since become an international treasure and resource, visited by scholars and students from all over the world.
The highlight of the event however was created by Alex Farrar, owner of a local bistro/art gallery and an excellent artist in his own right (he won first prize at the Venetian Masked Ball in February).
Where are we? Zone one, the city and country’s historical center, built in waves of different construction styles, cobbled together with remnants of some of La Antigua Guatemala’s rubble and finally concluded with the completion of the National Palace in 1943.
