Recently, Carina Otero of popular instagram travel blog She Is Not Lost joined us in Guatemala! She flew down to explore our ethical travel program with hopes of sharing a unique travel story with her audience. Now a days, travel blogging is a large part of our media and Carina was determined to use her platform to promote more sustainable and ethical options for all the instagrammers out there.
Visiting the UNESCO heritage city of Antigua was also an unforgettable experience. While the lake is our home, we also love to enjoy the conveniences of a city. Especially one as well preserves as this historic hot-spot. As a top tourist destination, Antigua is lined with exquisite architectural ruins, gorgeous hotels, enticings restaurants and even a bustling nightlife. Its picturesque ambiance is characterized by cobblestone streets, uniquely colored walled with a volcano backdrop! Talk about one instagrammable city!
We stayed at The Good Hotel, a boutique accommodation with a direct giveback to the community. Located in a quiet cobblestone street in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala and just a 5 minute walk from the Parque Central, the Good Hotel is so much more than its prime location. The entire essence of the hotel is in its perfect blend of high-end hospitality with local stories and culture. For every direct booking made at the Good Hotel, they donate $5 per night of your stay, to their charity partner, Niños de Guatemala.
