    Hi. Yes, I've been to Antigua and just loved it. Its very quaint and cute. Its pretty cold there, so be aware. You're probably going for language school? there are tons of foreigners there, like americans and europeans - that was the only part i didn't like about it. The zocalo (main square) is one of the prettiest i've ever seen. (i live in mexico and am a tour guide so i've seen quite a few). The volcanoes nearby are quite spectacular but should be climbed with care (like a guide) because lots of tourists are ripped off while out alone climbing the volcanoes. The greatest thing nearby is Lake Atitlan , which is incredibly gorgeous. Also, the ruins at Tikal are not to be missed, but are rather hard to travel to. There are many cute little hotels and posadas to stay in - some are not even advertised anywhere, so you just have to go to one place and then ask them for another place to go and see. Its a great town! for dinner you can eat home cooked food that indian women bring to the zocalo and sell. There are always crowds standing around eating food in the evenings and its super cheap. Hope you have a great time! If you're ever thinking of going to Mexico, Oaxaca is the best place ever!
