Fodor's Review

The Mopan Maya village of San Antonio, a market town 35 mi (56 km) west of Punta Gorda, is Toledo's second-largest town, with a population of more than 2,000. It was settled by people from the Guatemalan village of San Luis, who revere their former patron saint. The village church, built of stones carted from surrounding Mayan ruins, has a stained-glass window donated by another city with a connection to the saint: St. Louis, Missouri. The people of San Antonio haven't forgotten their ancient heritage: Each June 13, they take to the streets for a festival that dates back to pre-Columbian times. At this writing the road to San Antonio is being paved past San Antonio all the way to the Guatemala border, with completion expected in 2014 or 2015.
